Verizon announces Droid Incredible 4G LTE arrives in “coming weeks”

Verizon started the week off with a bang today, announcing the Droid Incredible 4G LTE will join the roster in the coming weeks.  Without giving us an official launch date or price, we know all the other details for the Android 4.0 smartphone.  Specifications are exactly what we expected, thanks to a string of recent leaks and rumors.

Hardware includes the following:

  • 4-inch super LCD qHD display
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, LED flash, BSI, f/2.2 and 28 mm lens
  • Front-facing camera for video chatting with friends and family
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor
  • Mobile Hotspot capable to share 4G LTE connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
  • Support for up to 32 GB microSD memory card
  • 1,700 mAh lithium ion removable battery

We’ll be hopping on a plane later today and plan to get some pictures and initial impressions of the device so be sure to follow along this week!  Pricing is yet to be determined however the last we saw, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE had an unreasonably high $299 sticker with two-year agreement.  Here’s hoping for a dip in price.  C’mon, at least shave $50 off, Verizon.
