More DROID Incredble 2 Cases Arrive at Verizon Stores, No Longer Expecting an Announcement?

At this point, we’re not sure if Verizon is ever going to announce the DROID Incredible 2 and are starting to wonder if it’ll slip into the lineup without much of a mention like the DROID2 Global did.  We’ve now seen cases for the device 2 or 3 times,  gave you the official user guide, found the showcase app in the market for it, and even handed out the official spec sheet with an April 28th launch date on it.  And with only 6 days left until we hit that date, all we have is an announcement for the DROID Charge as our next family member when we’re almost positive both phones will be available next Thursday.  Even Wirefly is on the same page and they sell these things for a living.  Although, we should point out that they’ve backed way away from their pre-sale date and have also hidden that pre-mature unboxing video.

Who knows anymore.  Maybe there are just too many DROIDs these days and Verizon can’t find enough cash in the marketing budget to talk about them all. <sad face>

Cheers Spaniard!

    Title incredible is spelled incorrectly (incredble)?

    A rep at verizon randomly told me about it when i was their store today.

    I just called my local VZW store asking when I can come in and add a line so I can get the Incredible 2 and the employee said they are expecting it to launch on the 28th.

    Of course Verizon won’t advertise the DInc 2. If they advertised a new $200 dollar phone, who the hell would walk in wanting a new $300 one that’s basically the same thing. And even the old Thunderbolt is cheaper.

    That’s the problem with droids, if you’re lucky you find 1-2 accessories for yours because there are so many, the accessory makers can’t make decent ones and the stores can’t carry a variety for each type, but they have a whole row of iPhone accessories since there is only one body. There was never a case for the DInc worth having.

    The Incredible 2 is a joke. What’s new? Nothing! It’s a 4.0″ Thunderbolt. Hell, the Thunderbolt is just an EVO.

    The Bionic is the only interesting phone on Verizon’s lineup.

      yeah you are right the thunderbolt is just an EVO. smh

        Have either of you truly compared the two phone to each other? The Thunderbolt has a much better GPU, a second generation Snapdragon processor and the kickstand on the Thunderbolt is much much better than the Evo kickstand.

        But have fun waiting until at least July (more like August) for a Bionic that won’t even be the same as what was announced at CES (i.e. it will be the Targa).

          I was being sarcastic hence the smh (shake my head) lol maybe thats over your head I have the TB and it def isn’t an evo.

            No, I am not familiar with smh, I apologize. If you would have done /s or something like that maybe I would have understood. I have a Thunderbolt as well, but I was mainly speaking to ImSpartacus hence the reason I mentioned the Bionic.

          The TB is a fatty mc phat fat. It needs to lay off the jelly rolls and do some running instead of leaning on a kickstand.

            Huh? It’s no heavier or thicker than my Storm was.

          • Anonymous

            The Storm came out in 2008. You think we could do a little bit better in three years?

            HTC can do it. Look at the Inspire, it’s much thinner and build with sturdy aluminum.

            Not to mention the Sensation, that’s got modern internals (read: dual core) and it’s smaller than both of them.

            Verizon took last year’s phone and threw 4G on it. In a few months, all the Thunderbolt users will upgrade to the Bionic or some other phone actually worthy of being released in 2011.

          The EVO shipped with QSD8650 (Adreno 200). The Thunderbolt has an MSM 8655 (Adreno 205).

          The 8655 was a 45nm shrink released in the first half of 2010. It provided only 10-20% at best. The Adreno 200 was a truly horrible GPU, it was simply appalling. The 205 is a modest refresh that makes it acceptable, not good, just acceptable.

          Now the MSM 8660 in the EVO 3D is a true next-generation product. It’s got a dual core 1.2GHz CPU paired with Adreno 220 graphics that are actually competitive.

          The Thunderbolt is a joke, it’s a direct competitor with 2010′s EVO.

    Verizon don’t really care anymore about announcing non-Apple related products. They will have a big pre-order announcement for the i*hone 5 and maybe a party event for launch. For us Android lovers, we get a announcement 2 days before the phone will be released

    announcement this coming tuesday…

    I was in a VZW store during lunch today and they just received their working launch demo today. I got to hold it. It is a fantastic feeling device with a really nice screen.

  • AnothaMexican

    If I remember correctly the first incredible didnt get a proper launch.

  • cowdog

    There really are too many android phones.

  • Calvin Williams

    I guess it might be possible to launch 2 Droids on the same day….
