HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE official, landing at Verizon "in the coming weeks"Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
A couple of weeks after Verizon inadvertently teased the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE on its DROID Does website, the handset has finally been made officially official. Launching in "the coming weeks," the DROID Incredible 4G LTE packs specs similar to those that were outlined in the aforementioned leak from last month. That means you're looking at a 4-inch 960x540 Super LCD display, 8-megapixel rear camera with another camera around front, microSD slot, NFC, mobile hotspot that can be shared with up to 10 devices and a 1,700mAh battery. The Incredible 4G LTE also features a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor under its hood and is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich beneath HTC's Sense 4 user interface. No pricing details were mentioned.
So there's the latest member of HTC and Verizon's DROID Incredible family. The Incredible 4G LTE looks like a nice addition to Verizon's 4G lineup, and it's good to see another 4-inch LTE handset headed to Big Red's shelves for folks that prefer a screen that's a tad smaller than all of the 4.5-inch and larger devices that've been released as of late. We're still in the dark when it comes to the Incredible 4G LTE's price and release date, though we've heard that it could be landing at the end of this month. We'll keep an ear to the ground for more details and pass along anything we get.
