Verizon confirms HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE July 5th launch
Verizon Wireless has just confirmed that the long-coming and much rumored HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is finally coming to the carrier on July 5th. If that date sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve already reported on it as it leaked out in a document last week, and now it’s all finally official.

The Verizon Droid Incredible 4G LTE will set you back $150 if you pick it up on a two-year contract with the carrier, but initially you’d have to pay $200 and wait for a $50 mail-in rebate.

The Incredible 4G LTE comes with a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, and runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. HTC is also bringing Beats Audio in this and baked in Android Beam with NFC so you can tap your phones to instantly share contacts, pages and more.

Curious to see battery life with a Krait and a smaller, lower resolution screen. Might be pretty good. Still wish HTC would've squeezed a bigger battery in this biotch, though.

My Rezound does pretty well with 1620mAH w/ LTE so I'd expect the Incredible to be quite good, especially after seeing the One X. If the Incredible performs well my Rezound will go back... maybe...

What's wrong with rezound? You'd pretty much downgrade with this midrange handset in my opinion.

Not really. The processor in the Incredible 4G is newer and more efficient. The Incredible has ICS NOW with Sense 4 with it's customizable dock, though Sense 3.5 is quite good as well (but a bit redundant). The 4" screen won't be sucking as much juice as the Rezound's and the body is thinner (again not much of a problem on the Rezound but hey, thinner is thinner). Also, 4" - 4.5" is my optimal range but I'm not interested in the Nexus. Also, nice of some jackoff marking me down.

exactly! i refuse to get a phone with a screen larger than 4" exactly. i've toyed with getting a 4.3" so many times (rezound) but... i just couldn't do it. i IMMEDIATELY fell in love with the Dinc2... and when i saw this i almost cried with joy. it's really too bad i probably won't be willing or able to get it because of verizon's stupid rule to sacrifice unlimited data... i refuse to do so until they rework their data tiering.. 2gb - $15 4gb - $25 6/8gb - $30 10gb - idk.. 50 maybe... i just feel like that would be much more fair than 2gb for 30 a month.. edit: i just went to the verizon website... i can't even seem to find the tiered data pricing at all... all i see is the shared? anyone have a link?

Pass......I am sure it is a good phone but with phones like the Galaxy SIII coming out for basicaly the same price for a top of the line phone I just don't see it. I know of course it is $50 cheaper after rebate but who wants to mess a rebate these days.

Darn I just got Droid RAZR little over a month ago and I am so unsatisfied with it. My last two phones were HTC (Incredible then Thunderbolt) and they ran great and I liked the how HTC laid everything out. To bad for me I am stuck with this until I get some money to buy the HTC.
