Verizon staff talking DNA, HTC DROID DNA that is

Verizon staff talking DNA, HTC DROID DNA that is
What have we here? Why it's a slide usded by Verizon to train their sales staff on the latest handsets. Actually, from looking at the slide it would appear that the training on this date was all about a couple of upcoming phablets. One is the Samsung GALAXY Note II and the reps are expected to memorize some details about the device like its 5.5 inch HD Super AMOLED screen, Pop Up video which allows you to view videos while you're doing something else, the advanced camera, and the quad-core 1.6GHz processor. The device is expected to launch from Verizon on November 29th.

Slide reveals Verizon is training its staff on a couple of phablets

The other phone on the slide is the HTC DROID DNA which will have a 5 inch 1080p display and a tremendous pixel density of 440ppi. Verizon reps are to remember the 8MP rear facing camera and the 2MP front facing shooter. Beat Audio is on board and of course, HTC Sense will run on top of Android.

Just the other day, we told you that the HTC DROID DNA had visited the FCC and one rumor has the phablet launching on December 6th. But considering that these training sessions are taking place, and the FCC visit has been made, why shouldn't Big Red get this monster on the street before Black Friday, which is November 23rd this year. There is some speculation that the device will launch on November 20th and we know that for those eagerly awaiting this device, that date is a lot better than December 6th.

1080p is an absurd resolution for a phone. anything over like 320ppi is a drain on resources.

Actually I hope the slide info for the DNA is wrong: it states "5" screen with HD Display" whereas it should say "5" screen with Full HD Display" to describe the 1080p screen...if that is what it truly is.

Sorry to break this to you but a bigger screen doesn't give you a bigger penis. Just an FYI before you go around bashing anything else that isn't the Note 2.

Yeah, you're absolutely right. The bigger screen on my Note 2 doesn't give me a bigger penis. My bigger gives me a bigger penis.

I dunno, I'm dead set on getting the note 2 but i think this phone is actually better. May actually end up getting this if I decide I dont want to deal with a stylus.

As sense continues to get better the only flaw of htc is battery life, although some seem to believe their batteries are worse than what others are making it out to be ultimately causing others to not want to buy their products on that basis alone..........When HTC gets battery life down I wonder what those "sales winners" will have to brag about then? Other than "we sold more than you this year"...... :(

The battery is a major point for whether I buy this or the Note 2. I'm not that interested into beats audio though. I'd rather just have the regular equalizer options. I'm not a fan of AMOLED after owning the GS2. So I'm hoping the battery life on this is at least decent. Plus I'm hoping for the ruumored $200 price on crontract compared to the Note 2s $300.
