Engadget is reporting a phone conference scheduled between Lowell McAdam and Eric Schmidt , respective CEOs of Verizon and Google. While no facts have been confirmed, the rumors abound that an Android-based phone will be discussed.
Frankly, Verizon is long overdue for the “next cool gadget phone.” AT&T has had the iPhone locked up and all the other Android phones have all been T-Mobile. With all the brouhaha over Chrome OS and the rumors that it would be mobile-device bound, that would be a pleasant surprise. AndroidAndMe.com is already reporting a Verizon-bound Android 2.0 phone, the Motorola Tao, will be launched on December 1.
We’ll (hopefully) know more this afternoon.
