Verizon picks up HTC Incredible, rebrands it as Droid Incredible
HTC Incredible, aka Incredible
Your search for a super powerful smartphone on a reliable network just may be coming to an end. This announcement comes completely out of left field, but it seems that the sultry HTC Incredible will be making its way to Verizon by the end of the month. To match up with its stablemates, the phone is changing names to the Droid Incredible by HTC.
This way, the “Droid” naming scheme can remain intact over at Verizon Wireless for all of its Google Android smartphones. You already have the Motorola Droid and the Droid Eris, so why not throw in the Droid Incredible too.
On paper, the Droid Incredible is exactly that: incredible. You can expect a large 3.7-inch WVGA OLED capacitive touchscreen display to go along with the peppy 1GHz Snapdragon QSG8650 processor. It’ll be powered by Android 2.1 with the HTC Sense UI being laid on top of it. Rounding out the feature set are an 8MP camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
Verizon hasn’t come forward with pricing information yet, but a pre-order page has been set up for the Droid Incredible by HTC. They say it’s coming soon and the “next chapter in the Droid saga begins April 29th.” That’s in two weeks!
