HTC Vigor to be Rebranded as the DROID Incredible HD, Launching October 13?

So the picture above just popped into our inbox.  Not really sure what to think about, but definitely wanted to share.  According to this document (which could be 100% fake), the HTC Vigor will be branded as the DROID Incredible HD and then released on October 13 as the “world’s first HD smartphone.”  Do we believe it?  Not sure just yet.  The number one issue I have is that this spec sheet lists the phone as having a 4.3″ WVGA (800×480) display that is “optimized for HD content” yet mentions the resolution as being 1280×720 and “HD” right below it.  So what is it?  Could be an error by a Verizon employee or could just mean the entire thing is fake.

As we all know, anyone can whip up a document in Word, take a photo of it, and then pass it on as legit. This one for the most part, looks pretty real except for that resolution part.  The rest of the specs all match up to what our sources have told us in the past and this shot even lists out some Verizon contract jargon at the bottom.  I for one, would love a class 10 32GB microSD card and a set of earbuds.

If it’s real, then “Hooray!”  If it’s fake, then this dude spent a lot of time putting it together, but obviously did not understand what WVGA meant.  No Verizon logo in sight either.

This URL is mentioned though, so feel free to hammer on it:  http://www.droiddoes.com/incrediblehd

You guys tell me what you think…

    Incredible HD sounds weird…I like the name Vigor a lot better

    wow people are arguing over how the Bionic’s battery life is better than a device that hadn’t even been released yet. Ridiculous… My Dad can beat up your Dad! Grow up children.

    Anyways am I the only one who notices how far behind VZW is when it comes to devices? Sure they fondly release the Bionic, but compared to the other carriers we still have nothing. Especially nothing really to choose from. Meanwhile every other carrier periods adding new devices to their line up ever other day. I see something new announced for the other carriers every other day. Yet the only device that we have officially is the Bionic. Let me clarify devices not low end or medium devices I mean something of note. VZW got the Bionic but Sprint got it first called the Photon. They’re almost identical in specs except for a couple of minor differences. & the awesome announcement that VZW is passing up the Galaxy S II. I know VZW is supposed to get something better, but again nothing official.Meanwhile the other carriers have several Flagship phones to choose from. Is this just me who notices this? Let’s not forget about the HTC Vigor. I’m petty sure there is nothing official on that either. I could be wrong thigh & of course no official dates on the so called Vigor or Prime. Not even any pictures but everyone is claiming they’re coming out in the next couple of months.But nobody at least has released any photos of these devices.Only rumors! I just wish I could finally upgrade my seriously outdated Incredible finally instead of being dead last with something I feel is worthy to upgrade to. I think VZW sucks at knowing what their customers want. I mean while everyone was putting out the new dual core 4g phones VZW continuously flooded their line up with devices that were phones that should have came out the year before. Do people agree with this or do people think my arguments are unfounded? Doors anyone think VZW had let the other carriers pass by? Or do you think VZW has plenty of phones that rival the other carriers lineup? Not what’s supposedly coming what’s out now.

    WOW, thier getting a little wound too tight in here. lmao
    I DONT CARE how much, or long your phone can out perform my phones battery life (a bit childish)
    I dont and will not lower the brightness on my screen, shut off animations or tone down any of my settings, or have a big ole battery stick out of my phone just to ‘extened’ my battery life. I LOVE MY PHONE and the way it looks and operates. and if that means to just carry a second battery and easily swap it once a day THATS WHAT I’ll do……… 
     And when the Vigor or what ever it will be labeled comes out i will do the same. Because i like the build, look and feel of HTC phones. I like the Sense UI.Every body has thier own personal preference. Im not gonna run out and buy a samsung cause its a micro second faster than the next, or its BATTERY last an hour longer.

      Justn sayin…….

  • Prickee

    This is the one I’m waiting for.  Checked out the Bionic and it’s real nice.  I just feel HTC makes more polished phones all battery issues aside because I’m rooting, & or ext. batt. so I’m good there. It’s all a matter of personal  choice once you get past the internal guts of the phone while comparing proc, mem, cam, & 4G

  • Good luck getting more than 3 hours of life in standby mode with that phone.

    • hahah omg so funny. i love battery life jokes. they’re so rare on this site

    How is the Incredible HD supposed to be the replacement for the Thunderbolt?  The Incredible is a Droid branded device and the Thunderbolt wasn’t.  In my opinion, either this or the Best Buy leak is fake or they are talking about two completely different phones.  The phone is new in the Droid Incredible line or it is the replacement for the Thunderbolt, I don’t think it can be both and make any sense.  Then again, when does anything Verizon does really make sense?

      I believe the manufacturer has say in what phone replaces what. So being that HTC makes Droid phones and the Tbolt, they can decide which phone will be replaced.

  • confuse

    4.3′ WVGA screen and HD resolution?? an obvious fake….seriously

  • Florin

    or it is legit and you got it all wrong this has nothing to do with HTC Vigor in fact i dont see any piece of information on that sheet saying something about Vigor

  • Florin

    that link means 0 no matter what you type after / ends up with the same result as if you would of input incrediblehd i think the sheet is a fake

    1620 Mah battery?  They still don’t get it…

    • Jikhead

      That’s only 115mAH less than the Bionic’s standard battery.  It’s ext. battery is nearly equal to the Bionic’s as well.  Not sure what you’re hoping for; we all want a standard battery that just simply doesn’t exist yet.

      They get that a bigger battery means a bigger phone. A compromise has to be made somewhere.

  • Guest

    LOL, this blows the Bionic out of the water! So much for all that hype!

  • Jason Lee

    Isn’t this rumored to have an Snapdragon MSM8960, which integrates the LTE radio into the SoC? So wouldn’t this drastically improve LTE battery life?

  • Pcman1911

    Why wouldn’t HTC just name the dam phone droid HD. Whats up with the incredible ? Let it have its own identity.So i guest now we should expect a Bionic HD, Thunderbolt HD, charge HD and Droid X HD

    • Anonymous

      If you ask me, they should continue name branding, why do you need 50 different models.  The Incredible is a well respected phone, so if it was an Incredible HD, or even a Thunderbolt 2, that’s good.  Get some consistency.

    • because the Droid is a motorola phone

  • BoostChicken

    This is fake.  droiddoes.com is only for motorola devices.  This is HTC. sorry

    • Bennyg126

      Not true the droid charge is made by samsung
