Mythical HTC Droid Incredible 4G appears, disappears

Verizon's new leak may prove that the latest HTC Droid Incredible isn't a mere mirage.

Android Central

Looks like the rumored HTC Droid Incredible 4G is getting more tangible every day. Reportedly, a detailed product page for the fabled device appeared on Verizon's DroidDoes Web site and was then cruelly yanked away.

Android enthusiast blog Android Central noticed the gaffe by Big Red, and plenty of sites followed suit, posting images of the device along with the phone's key specs. In a nutshell, if this latest leak is legit then the hot handset will boast a 1.2GH dual-core processor, 4-inch qHD Super LCD screen, Android 4.0 ICS, and HTC Sense 4.

Likely the best update, though, is the Incredible 4G's LTE connection, which its predecessor, the HTC Droid Incredible 2, noticeably lacked. The leaked price of $299 seems very steep to me and frankly the HTC One S (T-Mobile) with its all-metal chassis and AMOLED screen looks like a better buy at $199.

In any case, the first Droid Incredible broke ground by squeezing swift Android performance into a very compact package that sported a wildly ridged back battery plate. Let's hope this possible new Incredible lives up to its potential.
