That's Incredible! Verizon to get U.S. version of HTC Desire HD

0. phoneArena posted on 26 Oct 2010, 15:04

The introduction of two models overseas, the HTC Desire Z and the Desire HD, sure made many Stateside phone fans green with envy; but now we know that the former is coming to Verizon as the HTC Merge and speculation is that the latter will be available from Big Red as the HTC Incredible HD...

sounds good! I Eargarly await the release of the MyTOuch 4G/HD and the Incredible HD, both have practically the exact same innards and are both very powerful phones.

Bring it!

Hopefully Verizon doesn't cripple this phone with Bing like they did with the Fascinate!

This is no the Incredible HD for Verizon. Reason why that is not branded Verizon. This is probably the NExus Two. Remember how people thought that the Nexus One was a Verizon device. Think about it.

the branding is on the front of the phone. Think about it. There are pictures of the front of this device.

According to something I read, all phones in the droid line will still carry google, other smart phones that are middle to low end will have bing

There's no way that this is a mid to low end phone tho. It's equal, if not better, than the Droid x.

Why buy a phone that doesn't have LTE or a duel core processor?
Wait till January and get the new LG or the new Moto. or HTC. Wouldn't you feel stupid if you needed to upgrade in 6 month and have to shell out the $375 cancelation fee and pay another $500 for a new phone?

@ Gabe. That’s true for some but at the same time for most of us we won’t have 4G in our area until 2012/2013. Who wants to pay an extra $10 a month for a LTE phone with no LTE service? One of my friends is paying Sprint $10 extra a month because they have an EVO that’s 4G capable and 95% of the time they are running on 3G. Waste of money I think. And knowing Verizon they will charge more than $10 a month to have LTE that you will hardly use. I rather wait to get LTE when my next upgrade comes, actually be able to use LTE in my area effectively, and have a phone that isn't first generation LTE with bugs.

Ok, I have an HTC EVO, I got it the day it came out. I love this phone. Best phone I've ever owned. The battery could last longer out of the box but with some good (FREE)apps out there you can improve the battery life. From everything I have read, this is going to be the same phone just in a different case. Nadege, I concur with you on why pay for 4G service if you don't have the service. I life in an are that wont see the service for awhile. The only plus for me is that I travel the USA and in the cities that do have 4G this phone is awesome, there really is a big difference. I really hope that Verizon comes through with this in the rumored timeframe....

What happened to the Droid X? I seems like it got rave reviews and then disappeared.

I am looking for a phone that can run Silverlight software. A saleman at Radioshack told me that the Droid can, but Verizon people disagree. I was told that the Windows phone can (because Silverlight requires a Windows operation system). But I was informed my someone else that Silverlight could not be downloaded to the new Windows phone. Let me know. thanks.
