Verizon Announces the Droid Incredible By HTC

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this: wow.  If you’re on Verizon — between this and the KINs — you’ve got some really tough choices ahead. This phone truly is crazy, a seeming mix of the Nexus One and HTC Desire, taking pieces from both and making one sick phone. The Droid Incredible really looks to bring “the next chapter in the Droid saga” (Verizon’s words, though I completely agree). Just look at these specs:

  • 3.7 inch AMOLED touchscreen— This is a really high quality screen. Think of it like the Nexus One‘s screen– very clear and very bright.
  • Very thin design— Look at the pic above. See the Droid Incredible in the side angle? Yeah, it’s that thin.
  • 8MP camera with flash, auto–focus and video capture— Not only do you get great shots, but this can also shoot full 720p HD (yes, HD!) video.
  • 3G, GPS and WiFi
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • Android 2.1 with next generation Sense UI— As we’ve seen from MWC, this takes the Android homescreen to another level with features like “Leap” (for viewing all 7 homescreens in an Expose like way) and “Friend Stream” for viewing Facebook, Twitter and Flickr updates in one combined view.
  • 1 Ghz Snapdragon processor– To keep everything running  really fast and smooth.
  • 8GB built in memory — with the ability to add up to 16GB more through microSD. The built in 8GB  can hold about 2,000 songs.

So when can we expect this beast to arrive? Thankfully, Verizon plans to release this soon– in 2 weeks, on April 29th.

You can pre-order the Droid Incredible starting next Monday, April 19th. The Droid Incredible will cost $199.99 on new 2 year contract with data plans ($29.99 a month). So what will you choose this or the KIN?

    Wow!
    That is all I have to say…
    This phone is amazing, my friend has it and it is a great phone, I give it an A++++
    I will have to say I am not getting the phone, I am waiting, beacause I know its the first phone of its kind and a better one will come out later…

  2. honestly, i was on the phone with verizon AGAIN about bad service and how if i was going to sacrifice service, i might as well get the phone i like and go to cingluar for the iPhone…

    the rep said i should “wait till september” (insinuating an iPhone on Verizon release), OR pick up this phone now since he thought it was actually better.

    I still think i’ll wait… although functionally, this actually looks superior to the iPhone, the ease of use is what really attracts me to iPhone.
