The wait won't be long either as the Droid Incredible 2 will be available in stores and online starting this Thursday, April 28th for $199.99 with the signing of a two-year customer agreement.
Last year, the original Droid Incredible was one of the premier Android smartphones available. Some of the upgrades with this new model include the new 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, a 4-inch super LCD display, Android 2.2 and the fact that it is a global phone. Additionally, the Droid Incredible 2 can serve as a 3G mobile hotspot for up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
However, there's no 4G LTE connectivity available nor is there a Gingerbread update in sight just yet. Until that day (hopefully) comes, buyers will have other useful features to play with on this Froyo phone. Major specs include:
- 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
- HTC Sense user interface
- 8.0-megapixel main camera with dual LED flash, auto face detection
- 720p HD video recording
- DLNA support
- Adobe Flash Player
- SRS WOW HD surround sound with integrated noise-cancellation
- Supports wireless voice/data service in over 200 countries; 3G access in over 125 countries
Even though it would be nice for Verizon and HTC if the Droid Incredible 2 was a big hit, let's just hope it doesn't suffer the same shortage problems as its predecessor did last year.
