Reader-Created HTC Vigor Wallpapers Invoke the Incredible HD

(Click image for full version)

On Friday afternoon, we unveiled the first pictures of the HTC Vigor, a device that is rumored to be replacing the Thunderbolt as Verizon’s next big 4G LTE device to follow the DROID Bionic.  The look of the phone reminded many of us of the Incredible and Incredible 2 which made us wonder if Big Red had last minutes plans to make this device the oft-rumored Incredible HD?  Whether that happens or not, we won’t know until we get closer to October, but for now, we can dream of such happenings through a couple of wallpaper renders that a reader threw together for us this weekend.  Both are 1600×1200, so they’ll fit nicely on most desktops.

How about a white version?  If it looked like this, you could sign me up today.

And if you like his work, be sure to check out all of the Incredible 2 splash screens that he has created.

Cheers Patrick!

    Now that the Bionic is finally released let’s focus on this HTC Vigor.  I’m just sayin’

    I’m starting to see a trend in Verizon releases

    Droid 1 launched by itself 
    following year
    DROID Incredible,  Droid 2 and a bigger brother, DROID X
    following year
    DROID Incredible 2, and a bigger brother, DROID Incredible HD (Vigor)
    following year (future)
    DROID Charge 2 and a bigger brother DROID Charge HD of some sort

    I also want to point out, those colors might not stick when there released since this is a test unit, if you all recall when the DROID Incredible first got leaked back in February 2010 it was all black front, white camera eye and an ugly orange back.  Then as a month went by, we saw the internals of the Incredible, they were all red as well as the volume rocker, a few more weeks after, we saw the front get changed to a black with red earpiece when we first saw the DROID eye, and a white back this time.  about a month later, the device launched on April 29, 2010,  I was one of the first to get this incredible device when pre-orders started a week before and I remember the chaos on the A/C forums about people posting there confirmation numbers and all to see when it might ship and arrive.  Nearly everyone got their’s 4 days before launch.

    ì just got an iPad 2-32GB for $ 22.54 and my girlfriend loves her Panasonìc Lumìx GF 1 Camera that we got for $ 38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $ 657 which only cost me $ 62.81 tobuy.

    Oh man DL…Full page background T-Mobile ads that break your banner(in FireFox 5.0) and essentially make your page look T-Mo branded?  I know you gotta make money, but this just feels wrong!

    I dig the phone and it is on my hotlist and I want a new phone ASAP.. but I ain’t sporting a desktop picture of a phone.. please

  • Sporttster

    That’s a nice looking ‘backside’ to a phone,ain’t it? Love the rubberized, easy grip ribbing. Almost don’t need a cover with it like that.

    Still have the Incredible… this makes me so glad I didn’t upgrade to the Inc2, waiting for the Vigor!

    • Anonymous

      Awesome you waited this long, as the Vigor will likely be amazing. But, my wife has the Inc2 and it is fantastic, truly better than the Inc1 in every way. Can’t wait till Oct, as I am eyeing this and the Nexus for VZW. Fingers crossed!

    Dam Droid-life, I know there there is not a lot of news to write about ,but do you really  have to post photoshopped pictures of a fake phone and create your own name for it

    • Trbasil

      That’s the beauty of having your own website, if they want to they can.

      It obviously took you less effort to open the story and be an ass than it did to keep scrolling.

    I’m sorry but I prefer Vigor, I already have an Incredible, I hate when they reuse names, Vigor is just sexy

    • Anonymous

      Sounds like you will defend the name Vigorously.  Which really is Incredible of you, you seem to really have a Dream or a Vision of your ideal phone.  To which I say, Bravo, you really are a Hero.  With all the Buzz, it’s a shame they aren’t releasing some Legendary phones, but I suppose we can grab an Expresso, do the ChaCha, and wait for a real Ace.  I know I know, it’s turning into a real Saga.  Maybe we can get a Shooter to take some DoubleShots of the real thing, blurrycam of course.  Now you all can Marvel at my Speedy use of the majority of HTC Android phone names, it’s amazing the Lexikon they have given us!(I just did this because I Desire for you to Click like on my posts)

      Vivo HTC!

    I as well as my pals were found to be digesting the good hints from your web blog and then before long got an awful suspicion I had not thanked the web site owner for them. These young men were definitely joyful to see all of them and have now sincerely been taking advantage of these things. Many thanks for simply being very thoughtful and for selecting this form of nice themes millions of individuals are really desirous to understand about. My very own honest regret for not saying thanks to you sooner.

    I think this will be the one if the Prime doesn’t come out soon. Unlocked bootloader, HTC style, powerful hardware. Sounds like a win win.

      Wow, that white one is sick looking, I’ll definitely go for that over the Bionic. Although a kickstand would put a cherry on top. Awesome rendering…hey HTC- make this a reality

    So first batch of 720p screens will all carry HD?  DInc HD and DXHD then?  Nexus HD as well?

    • Mr. Joe

      HD is the new 4G.

      God what a mouth full on Sprint, Tmo, and AT&T who all put 4G on the end of their HSPA+/WiMAX devices.  INTRODUCING the HTC EVO HD 3D 4G!  The next revolution in Wireless!!  or INTRODUCING the Samsung Galaxy S II Falafel 4G HD!

      Thanks verizon for not putting 4G at the end of your devices.

    I don’t like having to play the waiting game for another 3 months with Verizon to see if they’ll get this phone or nexus prime.  Im so hurt they dont have GS2 I believe Im leaving verizon today.  Verizon has disappointed to many times.

          Because of this ONE reason, I locked to Big Red for life lol!

          • Automaddux

            Got the tiered data plan for my LTE 10.1 but I don’t think you are gonna beat being grandfathered into an unlimited 4g plan that will never go away. Unless, of course I think can get a better deal somewhere else. I live in Memphis and Sprint still hasn’t put 4g out here T-mo can suck it with their half-hazard attempt at 4g and AT&T, well I’m not even gonna go there. I too am Big Red for life. Now hurry up and get us some decent phones!
