HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE hitting Verizon on July 5 for $149.99Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
If you've been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE since its debut nearly two months ago, your wait is nearly over. Verizon has confirmed that the Incredible 4G LTE will be launching this Thursday, July 5, with Beats Audio technology built-in. Pricing for the Incredible 4G LTE will be set at $149.99 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate.
As a quick reminder, the DROID Incredible 4G LTE features a spec sheet that includes a 4-inch Super LCD 960x540 display, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 8-megapixel rear camera with another shooter around front, microSD slot and a mobile hotspot capability that can support up to 10 devices at once. The Incredible 4G LTE will come preloaded with Android 4.0 beneath HTC's Sense 4 overlay and will also run on Verizon's 4G LTE network. It's nice to finally see that the next member of the Incredible family is nearly here, and the DInc 4G LTE looks like it could be a good option for folks that prefer something a tad smaller than the 4.5-inch-and-up devices that are becoming increasingly widespread. So now that the DROID Incredible 4G LTE's launch date and price are officially official, who's buying?
