Well, it took nearly two months after Verizon said the phone would arrive “in the coming weeks”, but the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is finally here. Luckily, the phone didn’t show up with the preposterous $300 on-contract price we first saw attached to the handset, nor even with a $200 one, but became available for just $150 when Verizon released it yesterday. The ink on the phone’s “for sale” sign has yet to even dry, and we’re already learning of some steep discounts available for the Android.
The Droid Incredible 4G LTE sounds like a very capable phone, and for all intents and purposes can be considered a cousin of HTC’s One-series. That said, a retail launch back in May would have really helped the phone’s chances, as even just a couple months later we’re seeing it overshadowed by hardware like the Samsung Galaxy S III. In a case like this, sometimes all you can do is drop the price until it’s too hard to say no, and that’s what at least some sellers are doing.
Retailer LetsTalk has the new DI4GL for sale on its site, marked all the way down to just $40 on-contract. Obviously, that makes it a whole lot more attractive; whether or not that’s enough to make you forget about the GS3 is up to you, but with free shipping and all, it’s a tough offer to ignore. Verizon, take note.
