Verison HTC Incredible spotted in the wild… again
I’m sure a few Verizon customers are jsut itching to get their hands on the upcoming Nexus One. We still don’t know what the launch date will be for the N1, but speculation points to the end of March. Unfortunately, I’m not usre how many will be willing to drop their money on the Nexus One when the Verizon HTC Incredible is lurking right around the corner. For all intensive purposes, the HTC Incredible in the same as the HTC Desire (which is essentialt the same as the Nexus One) which was unveiled by HTC last month at Mobile World Congress. We actually got out first glimpse of the handset a in early February with a few decent pictures and some pretty bad video.
The Verizon HTC Incredible features the same 3.7 inch AMOLED display, 1Gz Snapdragon processor, Android 2.1 with HTC Sense, Optical Joystick, and 5MP camera as the Desire. The only real difference between the two phones is the exterior shell, radio chipsets (CDMA versus GSM), and maybe the allotted internal memory. The Verizon HTC Incredible release date is still under wraps, but I’d venture to guess we could see it show up in Verizo nstores in late April of early May with a price right around $200 with a new contract.
Though we don’t have the official measurements of the Verizon HTC Incredible, these pictures clearly show that the phone is slightly wider but a lot shorter that the T-Mobile G1. We’ve definitely come a long way in the past 18 months.
