Verizon to launch HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE on May 10th?

Verizon to launch HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE on May 10th?
So where were you back that February day when a mystery HTC device heading for Verizon appeared? Right away, looking at the back cover of the phone,the speculation was that this was a new HTC Droid Incredible model. Now that the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE has appeared on the DroidDoes website, most of the mystery is gone from the unit. We do expect the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE to feature a 4 inch qHD display with pixel density of 275 ppi. Under the hood you should find a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. Did we mention the thin frame that comes in at .46 inch? We might have let that slip our mind. But we won't forget about the 8MP camera with AF and the ability to capture video in 1080p. A front-facing camera offers .3MP for self-portraits and video chat.

While the Droid Does site list a price for the phone at $299.99 with a signed two-year pact (more on that later), a source for Phonedog says that the handset is expected to launch via Verizon on May 10th. Not only does the phone's presence on the DroidDoes site signal an impending launch, May 10th is a Thursday which is the day of the week that Big Red usually launches its  newer handsets. And that brings us back to the pricing of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE.

Verizon usually greets a new smartphone by cutting prices of similar models in its current lineup. For example, the Motorola DROID RAZR first launched at $299.99 with a 2-year pact. That was cut to $199.99 when the long lasting Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX was released at $299.99 on contract. Now that the DROID RAZR is priced at $99.99 with a 2-year pact, it would seem to indicate that the the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX could come down to $199.99 while the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE takes over the top spot at $299.99 on contract. With May 10th closer than you think, we could see some interesting news soon from Verizon.

This is going to be a great phone. The Incredible line has always been a hit among the Modders and has tons of 3rd party support. They have been waiting for a true update to the Incredible. The Incredible 2 wasnt too justified. But this one will be awesome. I just hope they can get the price right.

well then i suppose this bad boy will be announced next week if this is the case.
i'm fairly certain this won't fall in the $300 price range. to the average customer's eye this won't offer anything compelling enough over the Droid Razr MAXX or even the Galaxy Nexus and the Rezound for that price range. $150-$200 is the ticket here and Verizon should know that.

Not worth $299. For that price, it should at least have a hd display. & quad core would have been nice.

I wouldn't call 0.46 a thin frame. It may be thinner than the HTC Rezound but my Droid X beats it by 0.07 inches. That's really noticeable :P
