While everyone else ranted and raved (or, alternatively, raged) about the Nexus S, the folks over at Android Central were busy getting their hands on a picture of Verizon's upcoming Incredible HD:

It sure is a looker with that oh-so-sexy aluminum body... but we already knew about that. The real news here is that, tucked away in the upper right corner of the notification bar, is a promising 4G icon:

It's not as surprising as it could have been since Jeremiah Nelson spilled the beans yesterday, but it's always nice to see confirmation in the form of device pictures themselves.

When it comes to Verizon engineers and Twitter, there really aren't any secrets - some employees kind of just let it all out. Such is the case with Jeremiah Nelson (@V3RDICT), who today tweeted out not one, but six items of interest to future LTE customers.

To recap, according to Jeremiah, HTC Merge will not get released this month due to a late decision to equip it with an LTE chip (that's Verizon's version of 4G).

A Verizon-bound LTE equivalent of the HTC EVO? Nope, that's no longer just a blissful dream for Big Red users, as @black_man_x, a Verizon employee working in the LTE division, yesterday tweeted out the following message:

To add on to that, he went on to tell Droid Life that the pictures of the Incredible HD that BGR obtained a few months ago are legit, although the device has since been "refined a bit." We've already seen one great EVO look-a-like, so let's hope this aluminum-clad beast is another.

This tool does appear to do a permanent NAND unlock, irreversibly voiding your phone’s warranty, proceed with caution.[/note]

This night keeps getting better and better. The unrevoked team just announced the release of their anticipated Unrevoked Forever tool. What does it do? While the summary provided by unrevoked is a far better explanation, I’ll keep it short and sweet: once you install unrevoked forever, your phone can flash unsigned updates, no matter what, forever.

While its author openly claims the ROM is far from perfect, most Incredible owners would probably be happy to give this new ROM, codenamed Sky Raider, a whirl simply to see what Froyo+Sense feel like on their rare, practically extinct, phones.

While have not yet tested Sky Raider ourselves, the installation should be familiar to most rooted Incredible owners who have flashed a ROM before.

Note: this ROM appears to require a full wipe (system/user data or “factory” reset).

The love-child of HTC’s Passion and Verizon’s Droid moniker (please don’t sue us LucasFilms) is  beginning to feel more like a red-headed stepchild than a flagship device. Per Verizon’s website, new orders placed for the Droid Incredible won’t ship until August 3rd. While this is most likely for the same reason as previous delays (Shortage of Samsung AMOLED displays), Verizon previously claimed that demand would be “satisfied” some time in July.

HTC Droid Incredible

The date 4/20 is usually associated with things of mellow nature, and apparently some of Verizon’s employees or the shipping system itself seems to have been affected by it - a few lucky people who pre-ordered their HTC Incredibles got notices saying it would be delivered 4/20, and sure enough there are reports of these units being received.

What Is Going On?

It is a bit confusing as to what is actually happening right now in regards to the HTC Incredible.

Verizon just posted a semi-official confirmation of the long awaited HTC Droid Incredible coming to their network on April 29th.

The announcement is semi-official because it was posted to their staging site, which is now password protected. A staging server is normally used for testing pages that are going to production but it didn't make it anywhere official yet, so things are still subject to change.

As a refresher, HTC Incredible's specs, leaked a few days ago, are as follows:

  • 1GHz Snapdragon CPU
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • 8MP camera with autofocus
  • 8GB internal storage
  • 512MB ROM and 512MB RAM
  • 3.7" WVGA 480×800 px OLED touch screen
  • Sense UI
  • 312 min talk time / 149 hours standby time
  • 4.59oz
  • Android 2.1
  • CDMA obviously – it’s Verizon

BGR just got a hold of the official Verizon spec sheet for the upcoming HTC Incredible and it looks pretty good.

Here are some highlights:

  • 1GHz Snapdragon CPU
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi - I believe this is the first handset to feature 802.11n
  • 8MP camera with autofocus
  • 8GB internal storage
  • 512MB ROM and 512MB RAM
  • 3.7" WVGA 480x800 px OLED touch screen
  • Sense UI
  • 312 min talk time / 149 hours standby time
  • 4.59oz
  • Android 2.1
  • CDMA obviously - it's Verizon

The rest is pretty much expected of any phone nowadays.

Hey there, 2012-era HTC smartphone owners. Wondering where your CyanogenMod nightly builds went? We were too, at least until CM team member Ethan Chen posted a short update on his Google+ page. New CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly builds are now rolling out for the HTC One XL (codename evita), One S (ville), Sprint's EVO 4G LTE (jewel), and Verizon's DROID Incredible LTE (fireball). You can find them all on the get.cm download page.
