HTC Droid Incredible 2 now available from Verizon

It has been about a year (actually, it will be a year tomorrow, April 29), since the Droid Incredible impressed us with what used to be amazing specs at the time. Though our beloved Droid Incredible is still good enough to satisfy the average user, this does not defeat the fact that it is a year-old phone, and that is a lot of time in Android years. We have been hearing about the HTC Droid Incredible 2 for some months now, and it finally received its official price and release date last Tuesday (Along with the Casio G’zOne Commando).

The device was confirmed to be released today, and now the HTC Droid Incredible 2 is over at Verizon’s site begging you to purchase it. The highly anticipated Droid Incredible successor can now be yours for $199.99 after a two-year contract, or the “incredible” price of just $439.99 off-contract.

HTC Droid Incredible 2 Specs:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense 2.0
  • 4-inch Super LCD Display
  • 1GHz second generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 768 MB of RAM
  • 8 MP rear-facing camera / 1.3 MP front-facing camera
  • 1450 mAh battery
  • As Nick Gray mentioned on his first impressions of the Droid Incredible 2, this device may not be as stunning as the Thunderbolt, but it is a great device for everyday use, and the price is also $50 lower. To learn more about the Incredible 2 check out Nick’s article, and let us know if you will be snatching up this device! What do you think of it?

      Froyo…..really?

        Surprise? How many new phones do you know of that are running gingerbread? HTC’s currently pushing out a Gingerbread update for the phone in Europe, but Verizon probably wanted to launch the phone asap since they will probably take a good three months to test the update before pushing it out.

        The only phone so far that has launched with Gingerbread(aside from the Nexus S) is the Galaxy S II.

        Well since Google is going to most likely announce Ice Cream at I/O in a few weeks it seems like most of the companies are skipping Gingerbread which they consider to be a ‘minor’ release.

      why does HTC insist on giving us small batteries, i just got my thunderbolt and that’s really the only problem with it.

      • http://Website DROID Sam

        The problem with the Thunderbolt is that LTE kills the battery. If you turn off LTE, the phone will last you another 2-3 hours a day.

          An LTE phone having a smaller battery than my Fascinate? Unacceptable.

    • http://Website Ryan

      Wait so how is this different than last years model other than the screen size and maybe the camera?

      No LTE or Dual Core processor = FAIL

      Nice upgrade from the original incredible.

      I think they did a bad job on putting a 1450 mah battery.
