For a fleeting moment, the DROID Incredible 4G LTE made an appearance on the DROID DOES promotional site – revealing Verizon’s plan to sell the phone for $299.99. Since the launch of the HTC Thunderbolt, Verizon has launched nearly a half dozen phones for $299.99, but we don’t think the HTC DROID Incredible 4G should be one of them.
When it comes to specs, the DROID Incredible 4G LTE is expected to feature a 4-inch qHD display, 1.2 GHz processor, 8 megapixel camera with ImageSense technology, Android 4.0, HTC Sense 4.0, NFC, and LTE connectivity. While it may sound like a great upgrade over last year’s DROID Incredible 2, the new device is inferior to AT&T’s HTC One X, T-Mobile’s HTC One S and Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE which are all selling for $199.99.
Verizon has not made any official announcements about the DROID Incredible 4G, so it could be that the price that is was shown on the site was simply a place holder which will be corrected once pricing and availability details are announced. Verizon does have the best 4G LTE network, but are you willing to pay a $100 premium for the DROID Incredible 4G LTE when it is clearly inferior to HTC’s other devices?
