Follow up to the Verizon HTC Droid Incredible caught on camera?
0. phoneArena 27 Jan 2011, 16:36 posted on
It seems that HTC is having a hard time keeping its phones under wraps. Earlier today some pictures of a HTC smartphone leaked that is similar to the Desire, and now there are some new ones, but this time with distinctive Verizon branding on the front. This new smartphone is said to be running Android and is expected to be a follow-up model to the popular HTC Droid Incredible.

Not surprised that Verizon is leaking these photos.... With the hugely disappointed specs for the Thunderbolt they need this really bad.... I know for me it has peeked my interest a little to stay at Verizon... I will wait to see what specs come out for the Incredible 2....

maybe you're forgetting the Thunderbolt is a variant of the next best phone next to the iPhone, the EVO 4.

And maybe you are forgetting that The Thunderbolt promised to be the phone after your dream phone which it most certainly isn't!!!!

..and what does HTC's marketing campaign have to do with it? it seems to me like your point is that the Thunderbolt is going to fail because it's not "the phone after your dream phone" but realistically this phone will probably reign over non-dual core smartphones.

Oh, I didn't see where it was revealed that Verizon is leaking the photos? I didn't forget Thump3r! 4g all the way, babeee!

Ok...im not a fan. I have the HTC incredible and personally i think the picture at the top is what it should have looked like before. The specs can get better and better, but the phone just has no curb appeal.

Got the Inc. too...I thought the chrome bezel looks too yesterday...On a table facing up, the Inc. looks like its floating, from the raised levels on the back side, that's cool. On this version above, they took one level away so it has a more pronounced 'bump'. But ours has three levels, so that's just the way they did it first...which is cool and different.
I like the back side of the above version but not the front, guess we'll wait to see what else it has.

see the htc thunderbolt is gonna be a better version of the htc evo that is the first point. second the iphone as of now is just a name. droid is better than iphone hands down. and third verizon 4g against any networks 4g and verizons 4g smashes. no networks 4g can compare in speed or reliability its just not gonna be a chance. can you hear me now nuff said.

it sounds pretty neat..buttonless and all...but seriously, is a front facing camera a tie-breaker?

The front looks too much like an iPhone. Copy cat.

What's with HTC and these weird looking back covers?

If they can improve on the battery life of the Incredible and maybe boost the resolution (qHD please), I would consider this for my next phone. Not everyone wants a 4.3" monster like the Thunderbolt/Revolution/Bionic.

I want a average size phone. I have small hands even for a female and those big phones are just to much.

That was my major disappointment with Verizon's 4G lineup at CES - four devices with practically the same specs, same (huge) size, same form factor. The only one that stood out visually was the Bionic with its qHD screen. If they can pack the speed and LTE into a reasonable package (no more than 4" screen), I'm there.

I agree I would love to have a LTE enabled device. I just cant see myself with a 4.3" monster.

Last time I checked it was the HTC rep that was showing everyone there phones before launch. Verizon reps are too scared to loose there jobs here.
