HTC Mecha on Verizon

This isn't the first picture of the HTC Mecha (aka the Incredible HD and "Evo-like device coming to Verizon") that's out there, but this is the first time we've seen one powered up -- and it's a good thing it is. Because we now see Android 2.2, the new HTC Sense and -- if you squint just right at the top -- that 4G symbol points to LTE data on Verizon. (And that notification light should make a few of you happy.)

We're told it's currently in testing and that it's consistently getting 9Mbps downstream and 5Mbps upstream -- not too shabby, though real-world results likely will vary.

As for when we might see such a device? It's still pretty unlikely before the first of the year. We've got a full shot of the phone after the break. Thanks, Ed!
