HTC Incredible HD could be HTC Mecha which could launch as the HTC Droid Thunderbolt
Yesterday we reported to you about the HTC Incredible HD aka the HTC Mecha. Now it appears that the name of the device could be the HTC Droid Thunderbolt which is perfectly suited to showing off the speed and power of this LTE 4G handset along with its Android ancestry. The guys at Droid Life say that they are hearing that documentation for the phone includes both the Droid Thunderbolt name and the HTC Mecha moniker. The model number for Verizon Wireless is expected to be ADR6400LVW.

Perhaps it was a clue when Verizon last month ran its first ad showing off its LTE service. In the spot, a package that came from Verizon was flashing thunderbolts right out of the box.

With the CES only a couple of weeks away, it shouldn't be too long before we start getting answers to all of the questions about the new handsets and tablets that the carriers are about to launch.

Sounds like the leaking has started. I wonder when the Thunderbolt (or whatever it ultimately is called) is going to be available for purchase (as opposed to presented at CES or whatever show it will be presented at)?

there's going to be so much LTE Droid Brandage going on soon, it's going to be pretty kick ass to see what Verizon comes up with.

i cant wait. i am usually one of the people who will run right out and buy one of the phones right away.. but i just got a droid 2 global, so i will hold off and let a few of the phones come out and see what i like the best. I really want to see a version of the HTC G2 (for t-mobile), that flips/up-slides open just like that. thats a great design i think. if they make it, it will be mine!

They could've just titled it as the HTC Droid Thunder =/ the "bolt" could have been left out.

I agree. They should have left the bolt off and called it HTC Thunder.

I really don't know why but I want the Motorola phone the most. When I used the Evo it was sort of on the laggy side, plus I think that a 4.3 inch screen would get kind of annoying honestly. LG isn't exactly spectacular, and I'm gonna have to wait and see if the Samsung phone is any good...otherwise it's either the Motorola dual core monster or that iPhone...
