We saw it first at CTIA, one of the few devices launched there, and after a long wait it's here; the Droid Incredible 4G LTE by HTC will be arriving at Verizon Wireless stores July 5th and available for $149 on-contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate. Our review sample hit the door this morning, and we're fast at work getting our review done. In the meanwhile we have some glamour shots and a little family portrait. 

For those that don't recall, the DINC 4G (as we'll colloquially refer to it) is an off-shoot of the HTC ONE S, and features Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 dual-core SoC, the ubiquitous MSM8960, though here clocked at 1.2GHz. The Droid Incredible aesthetic has never been one of litheness, and that persists here. The body is 11.7 mm at its thickest, and the screen is a compact 4.0 inches, though the benefit in pixel density is perceptible. The super LCD qHD screen is actually quite impressive, with subjectively good color representation and incredible viewing angles. And, of course, our trusty Snapdragon S4 comes with an LTE radio on its cool running and compact die. With a smaller screen, lower core clock and fairly beefy 1700 mAh battery, this could be a compact all-day data hog. We'll let you know when our full review goes up.

    At almost half an inch THICK, they should have gone with a larger screen and spread the battery out with with and length instead of depth. This phone will feel like a brick. Reply

    Its about as thick as most HTC phones last year, hardly a brick... But considerably thicker than most of the current sleek designs (One X/S, SGS3, new EVO). I dont think it was the battery alone that lead to those dimensions, more like a combination of battery + thicker SLCD display instead of the One S's thinner AMOLED + memory slot + that over designed signature DINC battery Door.

    Personally, I'd rather have a bit more depth than a lot more width and height. There's already a huge number of phones that are racing towards tablet dimensions, no reason for yet another. Reply
