reported, the latter model, considered the hottest handset of the summer and called by many the best Android phone ever, could be rolled out as soon as August 12th.
So how can Verizon drum up attention for a phone that seems outdated after just 3 to 4 months? The carrier's solution is to offer a color refresh if leaked pictures obtained by PocketNow are legit. The pictures show the HTC Droid Incredible 2 in silver and despite the new color, the specs remain the same as from the original black version. There is a 4 inch 480 x 800 resolution screen, with Android 2.3 now on board. A positively barbaric single-core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 is under the hood.
The problem here is that the price of the HTC Droid Incredible 2 is $199.99 with a 2 year contract. That is also the price for the 4G enabled LG Revolution and the recently released Motorola DROID 3, which beats out the Droid Incredible 2 in just about every spec except for RAM. And it all means that once again, the HTC Droid Incredible 2 becomes Big Red's forgotten phone, even with a silver refresh. If Verizon takes an axe to the price tag, that might help matters somewhat, but it will have to happen soon before Verizon customers get to finally see what the Motorola DROID Bionic is all about.
