According to a source for Droid-Life, the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE will launch on June 21st. According to Verizon's MAP pricing, the device will cost you $149.99 with a signed 2-year contract. That makes sense since earlier intelligence indicated that Verizon was going to offer a $50 mail-in rebate with the phone and the pre-rebate price of $199.99 on contract. The HTC DROID Incredible will cover the mid-range handset territory for Big Red.

We would imagine that the $50 rebate allows for Verizon to differentiate between the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE and the much more highly spec'd Samsung Galaxy S III which is being priced at $199.99 for the 16GB model. Speaking of the sequel to the device considered to be the greatest Android handset ever built, Droid-Life's sources tell the site that the unit will launch on Verizon June 28th. That contradicts information spotted on a leaked internal Verizon email that calls for a July 9th launch of the phone for Big Red. That date, in turn, appears on Verizon's own website as the shipping date for pre-orders.

Ok I fully understand why the processor on the DINC4GLTE is underclocked now. The SGSIII will have a 1.5 GHz dual core krait with the 225 adreno so they had to water it down some. I think the DINC4GLTE is an awesome device for people who have petite thumbs. But it still is overpriced....

I am still trying to understand why VZW is shipping the GSIII by July 9th, when AT&T and Sprint are shipping around June 21st. If anyone from VZW could inform regarding the delay, I would appreciate it.

May or may not be Apple's patent bulls**t starting to affect Verizon first.
