HTC announces Verizon's newest Droid
At the 99% Percent conference in New York City today, HTC officially took the wraps off of its latest Android handset, called the Droid Incredible on Verizon Wireless.
The device was accidentally leaked by Verizon Wireless, which posted a Web site showing the device and its availability earlier this week, so not much of today's announcement was a tremendous surprise to fans of HTC's smartphones.
The Incredible has a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 3.7" (480 x 800) AMOLED screen, Android 2.1 operating system with the latest HTC sense user interface, 8 megapixel LED flash camera, Wi-Fi, and CDMA radios. The price tag is $199.99 with a two-year contract with Verizon Wireless and mail-in rebate.
Like the HD Mini and the HTC Desire, the Incredible's chassis beneath the back panel is vibrantly colored. This is something of a trademark of HTC's wholly-owned design firm One&Co, which made Microsoft's striking Arc keyboard and mouse peripherals and the original HTC Touch Diamond.
Pre-orders of the Droid Incredible will begin on April 19 on Verizon's Web site.
