First Look at the Red DROID Incredible 2

There she is in all her red glory (no idea why it’s a female, but it seems fitting).

We showed you the first renders of this device at the end of last week, but wanted to show you it in the flesh as well. It’s a spicy lookin’ Android handset that would be a must-have if it managed to house a dual-core processor and LTE radio into that body.   (more…)

Verizon Black Friday Specials Include Incredible for $149 and BOGA, Plus Continuum for $99

Fresh off the insider wire, we have the list of Verizon’s Black Friday specials and we’ve trimmed them down to only include smartphones, although at request, I’m sure we could toss back in a few feature phones.  Silly.

So we’ve got a really good deal for the Continuum going on tomorrow and Friday at $99 (after rebate), the LG Vortex for free (after rebate) and the Incredible for $149 plus a BOGA offer all weekend. That’s “buy one phone, get ANY other phone of equal or lesser value” for those new to the shopping lingo.  Think about the possibilities there, people.

Rest of the deals after the break.   (more…)
