HTC Incredible: A full recap before Verizon release

We have a recap on all the information we have heard so far now, for the highly anticipated HTC Incredible handset, expected to be arriving on Verizon very soon.

Lets start with specs for the device. The Incredible will pack a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display screen (multitouch capacitive), capable of outputting a resolution of 480 × 800 px. It will run on Android 2.1 OS, with HTC’s Sense UI providing the slick menu interface that you have grown to love. Other specs include an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash, 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512 MB RAM and 512MB ROM.

Aside from leaked pictures of the device, the first solid details about the Incredible came, when an inventory image showed the number of hardware units that were thought to be in Verizon’s possession.

Then we had some Incredible details pop up on CelleBrite – a tool used by Verizon employees to transfer user info from one handset to another. If that wasn’t enough for you to suggest that the Incredible could be coming as early as this month, Verizon themselves mentioned the Incredible on one of their Twitter accounts, when replying back to a user’s question about the phone.

Finally, an official listing for the phone can now be seen on Verizon’s website here, showing various details relating to programming. This brings us firmly up to speed for the HTC Incredible. Lets hope we get more juicy info this week. Let us know if you feel we missed anything, or have anything to share on the matter.

    Now that HTC Incredible is coming out I think it may change everything. I've always made compromises when buying a new phone. I'll get something I like but not the one I love, just to save money. Then I quickly tire of having an already out-dated device. Technology is almost impossible to keep up with. No matter what you get today it will be an inferior device in only a matter of months (sometimes not even that). But I've been thinking, if I'm going to spend the money on a device that I will be stuck with for the next two years, I might as well buy the one I absolutely love. I might as well buy the best one I can right now.

    Of course I'm still just waiting and crossing my fingers for the unveiling of the cost of the device. The ONLY deciding factor in this, for me, would be the cost of the device and if the cost of the service would be any different than the plans Verizon currently offers.

    What part of "recap" don't you guys understand? If there was new info, it wouldn't be a recapitulation.

    The RAM/ROM stats are wrong

  • easy does it

    To maybe give a little light on things. The phone now has a “sku” number in the system. No inventory yet, but does have a “sku”. Take it for what its worth. 🙂

    How many times are you going to say the same crap over and over? Do everyone a favor and actually try to find new info about the phone.

    Wow- this was almost news!

  • This is not news! This is simply another copy and paste from either your previous posts or from Engadget/BGR articles. Do some investigating and give us something we really want to read instead of a copy/paste article with a misleading headline. Will the next one read, "Verizon gives you the HTC Incredible!" and then proceed to go on about how the phone will come out "soon, very soon"?

    • What is misleading about ' HTC Incredible recap, 'Doug'? I was merely providing a summary of all the news so far, so readers can access them in one place. You are welcome to go elsewhere for your news.

      It said "recap" in the title. There's a reason it said "recap" as it is simplifying many of the previous articles into one.

    Yeah I can upgrade the 29th…..So maybe this will be perfect timing…My old LG is nearly dead and anything would be an upgrade from that. Come on…they have dragged this out long enough.
