Verizon Wireless announces HTC DROID Incredible 2
Another day, another smartphone is being prepared to hit the market. Of course, HTC has become quite the tour de force to be reckoned with where smartphones are concerned, delivering stunning hardware with their vaunted HTC Sense user interface skin to make it the best Android experience out there to date – even Samsung’s TouchWiz cannot come close. Well, there are also Windows Phone 7 handsets from HTC, but that is a different story for another day. For now, we will concentrate on Verizon Wireless and its announcement for the HTC DROID Incredible 2.
This will be a handset that will be available exclusively from Verizon Wireless, where you will be able to pick it up in a couple of days’ time in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at www.verizonwireless.com – of course, do expect the standard $199.99 price tag for a high end handset, while agreeing to a new two-year customer agreement as well.
The HTC DROID Incredible 2 will continue where its predecessor, the popular HTC DROID Incredible left off – you will not get Android 2.3 Gingerbread right out of the box though, but you will at least have Android 2.2 Froyo to play around with, a crisp 4″ super LCD display, a next-generation 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 3G Mobile Hotspot connectivity that lets you hook up to five different Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
Sporting the now vaunted HTC Sense experience, the HTC DROID Incredible 2 will not fall short in any way when it comes to advanced personalization options, where you will also be able to enjoy consolidated email capability and unique camera effects and filters. With a sleek design that comes in an all-black body (hello, fingerprints!), the DROID Incredible 2 merges both functionality and speed into one stylish package. This will be a global handset, and among the other features include :-
- 8.0-megapixel main camera with dual LED flash
- 1.3-megapixel front facing camera
- 720p HD video capture plus DLNA to share multimedia content with a compatible TV
- Adobe Flash Player
- SRS WOWHD surround sound
- Automatic face detection for more accurate pictures
- Integrated noise-cancellation technology
