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.

    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.

    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?  

    • Anonymous

      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.

      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.

      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.

    All I know it better have a real 1280×720 display and cost under $300 (maybe $200 but I’m dreaming) at launch.  Back up plan is the Nexus Prime.  Worst case is a Bionic but I doubt it.  

    • Anonymous

      Hopefully if it does come out the 13 they will include it on the 100 off at radioshack

    • if you’re okay with one cent under $300 then you’ll probably be good. Every Verizon LTE phone has launched at $300 ($299.99) and I wouldn’t expect this to be any different. I can live with $300 as long as it really has that 720p display.

      • Chris Gaton

        You are flat-out wrong about that. The Revolution and Thunderbolt did not launch at that high a price.

  • Bullet Tooth Tony

    32 gig Class 10 *micro* sd card??? Yeah, I don’t care how cheap they may be able to get them in a bulk quantity… I just don’t see them splurging for that.. Class 6 is fast enough for 1080p video recording… And this thing isn’t a dslr, so I don’t see the need for them to spend extra for a 10.

      Technically you need class 8 or higher for 1080p

        • Anonymous

          thats with a extended battery. i would never lug a phone around with that on it. thier big enough. evty one was bragging before the bionic was released. seems to me it gets the same life as a tbolt. i have 2 batterys i alternate. my phone never touchs a plug in charger. when i get home i swap the battery, no worry, no hassle. i use my phone all day long calling customers and on web browser moderate to heavy. fb/email/ download tech docs…… etc. i did notice that the rechild task manager, once taken off my battery life had gotten much better. using android asst. now.

          • brandon holley

            To be honest the droid bionic’s extended battery doesnt make it look that bad.

          • Wow troll more, the Extended battery on the Bionic is by far the best i ever seen, i hate huge phones with big batteries in the back messing with their awesome form factor, but i have an extended battery and kickstand case on my Bionic is and feels awesome still. Get the Vigor and brag about your “hd” screen and 1.5 dual core that offers a slight improvement over the Bionic’s 1.0 OMAP, What good is it going to do you when your phone holds a charge for 3 hours and you can’t see the screen outdoors lol. That’s right the Bionic looks great outdoors and with or without an extended battery i can squeeze a full day out of it, with the extended battery and juice defender i might be able to get 2 days without charging, it the HTC and their piss poor battery life you will have to strap on one of their bricks to make it the whole day.

    I would love to believe it. Not so happy with the Bionic, would be more than willing to sell it and pay the difference if this phone comes out soon.

    I, too, noticed the WVGA thing as peculiar (at first I panicked, thinking it was saying it was only going to have 800×480 resolution). But then the note about it being HD was a little fishy. Could just be a typo, could be totally legit. Honestly at this point, I will be happy if this phone hits any time in October. Considering it is the phone I have been waiting for since this time last year.   *Glares at the Thunderbolt*

      It’s getting a bit carried away with all the kids in here talking about phones their parents have not even purchased for them. They read somewhere about a Thunderbolt with bad battery life and then start typing the same. 

      It’s obvious they are kids because they can’t afford to buy another phone. Nobody is ever stuck with a phone since all it takes is a few hundred bucks to get any phone you want. For an adult there is no phone Verizon sells at full price that is more than a days pay.

            LOL

            #1. Ok…  I hope you saved some money and are not only living on Social Security. 
            #2  If you had already corrected it, how did I see it and respond to it… ?  🙂
            #3  I know, I can tell by your sentence structure.
            #4 You didn’t even understand my point. But I don’t blame you, I blame the old system of passing kids through the school system regardless of their underachievement.

            I apologize for picking on you. On one hand you make it so easy, But on the other I don’t want you to spit in my hamburger.

            You’re pathetic attempt to insult me only proves you are covering up the fact that you can not back up your original statement, but nice try. NEXT!

            What exactly is it that you need me to back up? What I mean is what part exactly? Id be happy to try and help you out.

            You’re theory of a family with 2 kids or more needs to make at least 150k or their close to poverty and that there is no phone Verizon sells that is over a days worth of pay.(and I’m the stupid one? You can’t even remember what you typed? You know the mouse scrolls up as well as down.)

            Ok, thank you.  Maybe there are many phones that Verizon sells that is more than a days pay for you. Or maybe even many days pay. If that’s the case I feel badly for you.

            Do you even realize that the middle class is quickly disappearing?  Do you realize that money is worth 1/3 what it was back in the 80’s?  So if you made 50k back in the 80’s it’s equal to 150k today. Sadly many peoples pay has not kept up with inflation. 

            These days if you have a family with 2 kids that you intend to send to college and lead a comfortable life you need to make in the range of 150k a year. That includes saving money for your retirement and also having some money set aside to take the family on yearly vacations. Along with many other things that require money. 

            I realize that many people do not fit into this category. Because in reality many families no longer even have savings or the means to have a real retirement. Most families are 3 paychecks from being homeless.

            Yes I stand by my original statement. And when I say poverty I don’t mean living in the streets. Luckily poverty in America is not the same as it is elsewhere. But a large portion of the masses are on the verge of poverty….  And if you cannot afford to buy a phone from Verizon at full retail with one days pay….. you are struggling far more than you think you are.

            How many people own their homes or cars… and I don’t mean making payments. Everything that you think you own is an illusion.

            If in fact you are older than me Eric I truly would think you would understand what I am saying.

            You imagine most familes make over $150k a year?  I can’t find any stats for over $150k, but the % of households making $250k is 1.9%, lets assume $150k is 5% which is probably a steep over estimate.   The median is slightly over $50k, and yes this is household.  Personally I could afford to buy a new phone at retail after a day and a half of work and I’m single no dependents, but I’m willing to bet 90% of the households out there can not.

    Isn’t it supposed to be “Beats by Dre”
    Not “Beats by Dr. Dre” ????

    • tanknspank

      Last point, says:

      “Beats by Dr Dre studio earbuds and integrated sound for an HD audio experience”

        Right but isn’t the company name and HTC press release Beats by Dre?

        The company name isn’t Beats by Dr. Dre as it says in this document. Or am I wrong on the company name?

        • tanknspank

          I just reread your question, my bad XD

          but as the post above me had said, the website does say Beats by Dr. Dre
