Incredible HD may come to market as the Thunderbolt [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
So you've seen the Mecha/Incredible HD from just about every angle and are jonesing for some more information about the device, right? I don't blame you, I am too. Luckily, the folks at Droid-Life have a received a juicy tip that could whet your appetite for the time being. According to their source, the Incredible HD will sport the model number ADR6400 (the Incredible is ADR6300) and that it will come to market with one of the two following names: Thunderbolt or Mecha.
At first I was unsure about the name Thunderbolt, but after thinking about the device and its predecessor, it kind of makes sense. After all, it could very well be Verizon's first LTE device, and the name Thunderbolt would go hand in hand with the current marketing for their 4G network. Then again, Mecha would be a good choice, too. It's short, sweet, and was spotted on HTC's Sense website back in October. While we patiently wait for HTC and Verizon to make this device official, I pose the question to you: which name do you prefer? DROID Thunderbolt or DROID Mecha?
UPDATE: Whatever the device ends up being called, it looks like HTC is going to reveal it on January 6th. They've updated their site with the image below, claiming that they'll be "the first to 4G, again." Which carrier just so happens to have a press conference on Jan. 6th? Why Verizon, of course. Looks like we'll finally put an end to all of the leaks and actually put some hands on time with the Incredible HD/Mecha/Thunderbolt in just a couple of weeks.
