Just a quick reminder, the HTC DROID DNA is available starting today (November 21st) at a Verizon near you. HTC's latest addition to the DROID lineup is packing a 5" 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 pro processor, 2GB of RAM, LTE, NFC, and various other adjectives. And at $199 on a two-year agreement (less if you head to Wirefly), it's not a bad deal. Our review will be going up today, so be on the lookout.

By the way, Verizon decided having the phone unlockable via the HTC Dev site wasn't something they were so hot on, so you can't do that anymore. Bummer - it still has root, though. In the meantime, be sure to check out my initial impressions post, and a deep dive into battery life.

    Does anyone even find Verizon's disdain for a full android experience surprising anymore?

    Sorry, 16GB and no SD card slot is a no go with me. This phone has so much potential but is crippled by the limited space. I have 20GB a lone on my GSIII and with my SD card I have an additional 12GB/32GB of videos, photos and music. HTC epic fail on space provided to the user.

      do you even use all that storage? I know its nice to at least have the option, but I wonder if its really a deal breaker if you're not even gonna use that much.

      Most people would carry large movies and other space hogging files on a tablet since its better to watch it there anyway.

        I currently have an HTC Amaze, and have a 64GB mSDHC and it's practically full, just from all the pictures and videos I take for work purposes... so yes, I would say it's necessary for a lot of people... cheaper to use storage cards, than to pay for cloud storage still... but hopefully not for long...

    will the version going to other carriers actually have SD expansion? or is that hoping for too much? T-mo or AT&T version with SD please!
