When we see inconsistencies in leaked documents that cross our path, our Spidey sense goes all a-tingling fake or mistake? People make typos, and internal documents not meant for public consumption aren’t going to get the same level of scrutiny as a press release might (not that we haven’t seen our share of typos there). Then again, what could be a copy-and-paste gaffe might just as easily point to a shoddy hoax job. It’s with this balancing act on our mind that we turn to the latest rumor to pop up, that the HTC Vigor will be coming to Verizon as the Droid Incredible HD on October 13.
While much of the screenshot at the source of this information looks legit enough, there’s a troubling contradiction where two subsequent bullet points describe the smartphone’s screen as first WVGA, and then the 720p HD we were expecting; it can’t very well be both.
We were starting to think Vigor would be the phone’s retail name, but there’s some logic to the Incredible HD. After all, we’ve also heard that the Vigor would become the Thunderbolt 2, and the original Thunderbolt was first on our radar as the Incredible HD.
For now, this rumor is definitely interesting, and we’ll be keeping an eye on the thirteenth, but given the circumstances, we’ll wait for something more in the way of confirmation before we start accepting it.
