Reminder: We'll be covering the HTC event tomorrow starting at 3:00 PM EST
Considering that we’re getting closer to the nitty gritty portion of the year when handset sales are expected to rise dramatically, mainly due to the always-busy holiday season, we’re at that point when companies normally announce their new devices in time for the festivities. Last week alone, we managed to get wind about HTC’s planned press event in New York City tomorrow, November 3rd.

From the sound of it all, the rumors and recent information of late point to the realization that we’ll more than likely see the HTC Rezound being officially announced. Slated for Verizon Wireless, this anticipated Android powered smartphone was commonly referred to as the HTC Vigor and Incredible HD. Needless to say, this one should prove to be a charmer taking into account that it’s believed to feature a 4.3” 720p display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear snapper, 2-megapixel front facing camera, Sense 3.5, Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, and 4G LTE connectivity.

Naturally, we’ll be covering the event live starting at 3:00 PM EST tomorrow – so don’t forget to check back here for the latest and most up-to-date news surrounding it. Still, it’s possible we may see something else besides the HTC Rezound, but in any case, we’ll make sure to give you all the latest things about the event.

And if you happen to be a Verizon customer, there are obviously plenty of variety headed your way in terms of high-end next-generation Android smartphones. Between the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola DROID RAZR, the addition of the HTC Rezound should really balance things out between the manufacturers.

So mark it down now people, since there should be plenty of great things to come out of it!

Early 2011: Verizon: "Okay, everyone give us an LTE phone." HTC, Samsung & LG: "Sure thing, boss!" Motorola: "Sure th-- um, we'll get back to you on that." Late 2011: Verizon: "Okay, now everyone give us a freakin' amazing LTE phone." HTC, Samsung & Motorola: "Sure thing, boss!"

Which phone are you leaning towards?

Nexus, but I really need to see how the Rezound and Nexus each feel sizewise, typing, etc. Ice Cream Sandwich is very tempting, but it's a big phone.

what makes you think the Nexus will be so much bigger than the Rezound?

I'm assuming the Rezound will be the same size as the Sensation and EVO 3D. It's almost 0.4" longer than those two HTCs. The thinness of the Nexus should help make up for its size, but it's still a big phone.

i don't think it's big enough for it to be a factor over the Rezound but i guess you'll just have to see that for yourself.

I was going to include them, but there isn't enough info on the LG Spectrum yet. So I doubt it'll be out in time for the holiday season with the other three.

who knows. LG is kind of good about keeping their handsets under wraps. i don't think there was hardly any notice of the Revolution's existence before it was announced.

If my Thunderbolt is any indication, then it will feature a "4.3” 720p display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear snapper, 2-megapixel front facing camera, Sense 3.5, Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, and 4G LTE connectivity," all powered by a 1200mAH Li-Poly battery.

Is it really slated for a 1620mAH battery? My orginal Epic 4G has a 1500mAH battery, I dont think 1620mAH is gonna be enough juice for the Rezound.

Well if Sprint was planning a big comeback they're blowing it because it seems they would much rather sit on the sidelines this holiday season and watch everyone else launch all the high-end devices or any at that matter, TMO launched 6 mid-levels today to keep their name in the game atleast. Not a good plan for a comeback, good plan for a forfeit though because this screams "we're giving up"!
