HTC DROID DNA available for purchase at Verizon Wireless

Starting today the HTC DROID DNA is available for purchase at Verizon Wireless. On a two-year contract the J butterfly's US brother runs for $199.99, while off-contract it costs a marginally higher $599.99.

Like the J butterfly, the DROID DNA comes with a massive 5-inch Super LCD3 display with 1920-by-1080 resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for protection. Power comes from a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor backed by 2GB of RAM and a relatively small 2020mAh non-removable battery. Unlike the J Butterfly, the big red version has to make due with just 16GB of internal storage as it does not feature a microSD card slot.

In the camera department the DROID DNA features an 8-megapixel sensor on the back with auto-focus and LED flash, while on the front the DROID DNA features a 2.1MP sensor. Unlike most smartphones available today, both cameras are capable of 1080p video recording.

As far as connectivity options go, the following are available: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n; 4G LTE (obviously since it's on the big red network); Bluetooth 4.0; NFC (Near Field Communication) and GPS with Glonass support. The DROID DNA weighs 5.0 oz and measures 5.55 x 2.78 x 0.38 inches.

The operating system of choice is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which means Google Now, Project Butter, expandable notifications and other new features are onboard.
