Verizon HTC Incredible 2

Well, well, what have we here? An all-new, hot-off-the-press, get-it-while-it's-hot look at the upcoming (and still not actually announced) Incredible 2 on Verizon. From what we can tell, the body's exactly the same as we saw on the HTC Incredible S at Mobile World Congress (see our hands-on here). Same rounded corners, same plateaued battery cover (which we still really like). But this one's all done up in Verizon duds, and that makes us all tingly inside.

Flip it over, and we see the same 8-megapixel camera with dual flash, and the ever-comforting "with Google" logo.

We also get another look at the HTC keyboard (which remains one of our favorites), confirmation that indeed we're dealing with ADR6350, for those of you who keep up on your HTC code numbers, and this one's running Android 2.2.1 at the moment. Whether it'll launch with that, well, we'll see (and keep our fingers crossed for something a tad newer).

And speaking of release dates. Nothing official, of course, but that leaked Verizon roadmap we saw a week or so ago mentions April 28. That said, we've heard that roadmap might already be out of date, and we might be treated to a phone or two a little sooner rather than later. Will the Incredible 2 fall into that category? And is that actually its name? We'll just have to see.

We've got a nice little handful of Incredible 2 pics after the break, if you're into that sort of thing.

Everything I've seen on the device has it without LTE (just 3G). It's basically a Thunderbolt with no LTE and a 4-inch screen.

lol this whole 4g thing is like never gonna end hu? Att better do something im tired of being on 3g when my phone shuld rock 4g

If you want 4G, drop AT&T and go with a REAL carrier like Verizon or Sprint. AT&T sucks anyway with their throttling of upload speeds & blocking the ability to sideload apps.

AT&T is a 'real' carrier, more-so than Sprint. It would be more accurate to say "If you want 'real' 4G, drop AT&T and go with Verizon or Sprint".

Here's a thought I had earlier, if the buttons rotate in landscape, that would suggest that they are just part of the screen. So, in theory, do you think the right developer will be able to customize those buttons entirely?

Its a Screen actually & not a real buttons (Think something like the Samsung Quantum -or whatever it name-)
It rotates just like the icons on your home screen when you rotate the phone
There's videos showing it in YouTube

When are we getting our frickin dinc 2 forum? We need a place to speculate and post dumps, etc.

EDIT: Spoke to soon. Thaaaaanks Phil. :P

To those that think this will have Lte...it won't. If you want an HTC Lte phone, there's a Thunderbolt for that.

Meh, I'll stick with my O.G. dinc for now. My wife just got the thunderbolt, and that thing is slick! But I want to see the bionic and if there is any chance for Sony's Arc on Verizon.

What's the hold up on Gingerbread? I can't believe it is taking as long as it is. Am I alone in thinking that Google coded it in a way that it made it nearly impossible for manufacturers/wireless companies to tinker with it?
