First and foremost, this shouldn’t really surprise anyone since it’s basically identical to the HTC Incredible S that we reviewed last month, but since this is Verizon’s version, it’s obviously fitted with the DROID branding. On the front and back of its packaging, we find some images of the handset in question, while its overall metallic packaging tastefully complements its DROID nature. Not surprisingly, we only find the usual assortments of items inside – such as the microUSB cable, wall charger, and usual set of documentation.
Naturally, the handset looks and feels larger than its predecessor, which is mainly due to the larger sized 4” WVGA Super LCD display it’s packing along. As for the other specs, it’s pretty much the standard fanfare with its 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, 768MB of RAM, 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with dual-LED flash, 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, 720p video recording, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 16GB microSD card. Increasing its worth is the fact that it’s a world phone which you can use abroad – meaning, there’s a SIM card slot with it.
Going on sale starting tomorrow, April 28th, you can pick one up for $199.99 with a 2-year contract. However, if you’re torn about picking this one up, especially when you’ve got the HTC Thunderbolt as well to consider, just hold off because we’ll have our comprehensive review up soon!
