Leaked screenshot points to April 28th launch date for Verizon's HTC Droid Incredible 2
Verizon customers impatiently looking for their next handset might consider the HTC Droid Incredible 2. And a leaked screenshot of what appears to be some of the carrier's internal correspondence, indicates an April 28th launch date for the phone, so those looking at this model won't have that long to wait.

The Droid Incredible 2 will not offer 4G connectivity, nor is there a dual-core processor under the hood. But otherwise, the handset has a lot going for it like a 4 inch WVGA LCD display, an 8MP camera in the back and a 1.3MP front-facing camera for video chat. The same chip that powers the HTC ThunderBolt, the 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655, is on board along with 768MB of RAM. The handset will also feature 3G hotspot capability, which will cost $20 a month for 2GB. Out of the box, the unit will come with a pre-installed 16GB microSD card and DLNA support allows you to share the Droid Incredible 2's media with other devices without the use of wires.

We have told you that the Droid Incredible 2 will have a $199.99 price tag which requires a new 2 year pact. This allows the device to look more affordable compared to the HTC ThunderBolt and the upcoming Samsung Droid Charge. Both of those handsets are 4G enabled with the former having launched for $249.99 with a 2 year contract and the latter expected to tip the scales at $299.99 with a signed contract when it is released.

Why is this phone 199.99? I mean it looks cool but still... its free on contract in europe. Verizon overprices there phones. Its rediculous.

The best way to deal with stuff like this is to not buy it, and that will show Verizon that consumers control the priceing, not them. :)
