We broke the news yesterday that the HTC Droid Incredible 2 is coming to Best Buy in an exclusive white paint job for $149, and today the big box retailer confirmed the news. Here's the full scoop:
MINNEAPOLIS, August 18, 2011 - More exclusives are coming to Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile specialty stores, this time with the white version of the DROID Incredible 2 by HTC on the Verizon Wireless network. The smartphone launches nationwide in Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile specialty stores and online at BestBuy.com/Mobile on Sunday, Aug. 21.
Similar to the original DROID Incredible 2 that launched in April, the white version features the Android 2.2 operating system, 4" WVGA touch screen, 8.0MP digital camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera and Mobile Hotspot capability. It retails for $149.99 with new, two-year activation.
Best Buy Mobile has set a precedent of bringing exclusive phones and colors to the market, supporting its commitment to delivering a better choice of phones and networks. Best Buy Mobile is also focused on delivering straightforward pricing featuring no mail-in rebates; impartial, informed advice with a non-commissioned sales staff; and someone to be there for the life of the phone through key services like Walk Out Working and Geek Squad Black Tie Protection.
Loving the white color. Shame it's not shipping with Gingerbread now, though. We'd prefer customers not have to update.
