The fine people over at Droid-Life.com have recently spotted that the HTC Droid Incredible seems to have sneaked out the back door from droiddoes.com. The device didn’t just disappear from the page itself but it seems to have disappeared completely from Verizon’s main page as well. This would lead one to believe that the company is indeed declaring the phone dead so to speak.
Some rumors are suggesting the fact that the device has become unavailable because of the upcoming launch of the HTC Droid Incredible 2 ( or the HTC Incredible S in Europe ). The device is already on sale in Europe and now it seems that its slowly but surely getting closer to a release date over in the US as well. Considering that some reviewers already got their hands on some of these devices, we might soon see the HTC Droid Incredible 2 replacing the original Droid Incredible on DroidDoes.com as well as in the current Verizon lineup.
The latest rumors are claiming that the HTC Droid Incredible has reached the End of Life, which would mean that the device is now officially being discontinued on the network. But as they say, the king is dead long live the king, let’s take a swift look at what we can expect from the HTC Droid Incredible 2 specs wise:
• 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM 8655 processor ( the European version comes with the MSM 8255, the diff being 8655 has CMDA frequencies )
• 768 MB of RAM
• 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 720p recording
• Android 2.2 Froyo with Sense UI
• Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connectivity
• 4 inch S-LCD display ( rumored )
As you can see, not much is really known about the device, but chances are pretty high that it will be similar to its European cousin, so in case you wish to get a rough idea, you can safely check out the specs of the HTC Incredible S. The only notable difference between the two will be the cellular networks they work on, but other than that, nothing different really. Stay tuned for more as the story develops and may the Droid Incredible RIP!
PS – The Droid Incredible 2 ROM was recently leaked which might be putting the device somewhat closer to launch than initially anticipated. We will try to keep you boys and girls updated as this develops.
