Featured: Verizon Officially Announces DROID Incredible 4G LTE With S4 SoC

HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE

Verizon today made the official announcement of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE and said it should be available in coming weeks. Thee next gen Incredible packs a 4" Super LCD 960 x 540 display, Android 4.0 / Sense 4.0, and a 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 SoC, 8MP rear camera along with LTE connectivity. Although 4" sounds paltry with all the large screen devices now a days this is still the preferred size for many individuals and should be a nice addition to Verizon's summer lineup. Pricing has still not been made available, but seeing as it should ship with 8GB of memory expandable through micro-SD it should hopefully be $199 on a new contract. This is your best option if you've been waiting on the new Sense 4.0 and the camera from the HTC One series to get to Verizon.
