Earlier today, we heard a rumor that the HTC Vigor might end up arriving on October 13 as the Droid Incredible HD. The source behind that info was a little sketchy, though, so we’ve been looking for some way to confirm the information provided. Some new data has now arrived, but it sadly doesn’t help to clarify the situation very much.
A leaked launch checklist for Radio Shack stores shows the phone, as the HTC Vigor, set to kick-off its direct-fill sales on October 20. It wouldn’t be that surprising to see a slight delay between the carrier’s and a retailer’s launch, but when you combine that with the use of “Vigor” here instead of “Incredible HD”, it just creates more questions. Again, on its own it’s not that odd to see confusion over device names, but we’re walking into this one with our guard already up.
Joining the Vigor on the list, Samsung’s Illusion is marked as arriving on October 20 as well, and the Samsung Stratosphere is tipped for earlier in the month on October 6. No pricing information for any of these handsets was included with the leaked dates.
