New info on the HTC Droid Incredible. BestBuy to get it on the 25th?
Now that we've seen the HTC Droid Incredible finally appear on a Verizon page, we thought that things would settle down for awhile, until the carrier decides to actually announce it. However, as the new dawn has broken upon us, so did some new information about the pretty hot smartphone.

A bunch of specs and other info have been found on Verizon's website, meaning we have every reason to trust them. In addition to features we are already aware of, like a 3.7" WVGA AMOLED screen, 1GHz Snapdragon and 8MP AF camera, we also get to know what the package will contain:

  • HTC Incredible
  • Standard Lithium Ion Polymer Battery
  • Wall/USB Charger
  • Product Safety and Warranty Guide
  • Quick Start Guide

Quite modest, we shall say. However, and here are the highest reported HTC Droid Incredible SAR ratings: 1.4 W/kg at the ear, and .7 W/kg on the body. These are the maximum values you'll be toasting your brain with.

In a totally separate story, two screenshots of BestBuy's inventory system have leaked, revealing that the HTC Droid Incredible will be in-stock on April 25. Does this mean that they may actually start selling the Android 2.1 smartphone on this date (rather than on the 29th)? Time will tell. The phone's out-of-stock date seems to be scheduled for April 25, 2012. Looks like this won't be a good year for smartphone users too. The retail price appears to be $599.99 - something which, of course, everyone can afford... (Thank God Verizon's going to subsidize this thing.)

I used to work at best buy and that doesn't mean a sell date. Thats just for inventory. Best buy resets their pricing every sunday so all new products have to get a price and an inventory number the sunday before they start selling, even if they don't go on sale for another couple days
