Along with a slew of feature phone and Blackberry devices, it looks like Verizon’s lineup of Android phones could be getting the prepaid treatment if some recent screen captures are any indication. VZW seems poised to launch a full-blown prepaid portion of their wireless service, and if the device list holds true users will have some pretty impressive options including everything from the original Motorola Droid up to the yet to be released Samsung Fascinate.

The Droid 2 and Droid X are also up for prepaid, as well as the HTC Droid Incredible, the Motorola Devour, and the LG Ally. That just about covers all of the Android phones Verizon currently offers.

As far as prepaid pricing, it looks like data will get a flat $30 per month fee for unlimited usage, plus a voice plan at an undisclosed price on top. Altogether we’d imagine the prepaid package would run about $60-$75 per month at a minimum for unlimited data and a voice plan. Not too much of a steal when you consider these phones on prepaid plans won’t get the same low-cost subsidized treatment of their kin being shipped off with two-year contracts.
