Verizon Unboxing Event Hints At HTC Droid DNA Release Date


The last couple days have been busy ones for the HTC Droid DNA, getting ready to launch on Verizon. Over the weekend, we checked out a newly-leaked render of the handset, and overnight we heard a bit about how the handset might be arriving internationally. With Verizon and HTC’s press event scheduled for tomorrow, we should soon be getting a bunch of new details on just how the 1080p Android will arrive. Until then, we’ve got one more rumor to take a look at, attempting to narrow-down just when the Droid DNA would finally go up for sale.

We’ve heard rumors of both a November 20 retail launch, as well as one in early December, possibly on December 7. Now some new evidence suggests that Verizon might be planning to go ahead with that earlier date.

The carrier posted a Google+ invitation to check out an unboxing of the Droid DNA, schedule for November 19. Since the initial posting, it’s scrubbed the announcement from any mention of the phone’s name, but with no other Droid models on the horizon, there’s little doubt just what handset we’re talking about. Since Verizon talks about this unboxing occurring in advance of the phone’s public availability, it’s not unreasonable that Verizon could be planning to put it up for sale the day after, on the previously-rumored November 20.

Sure, that’s a Tuesday, rather than the Thursday Verizon normally uses for its releases, but who knows? If we’re lucky, Verizon might even come forward with some of the phone’s launch details at tomorrow’s event.
