Verizon Wireless has confirmed pricing and availability for the DROID Incredible 2 by HTC, the CDMA version of the Incredible S we reviewed last month. The DROID Incredible 2 will drop on April 28, priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement and mandatory data plan.
Inside is Qualcomm's 1GHz single-core processor, driving Android 2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense on top. There's also a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen, an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash on the back, and a 1.3-megapixel fixed-focus camera on the front for video calls.
720p HD video recording, Adobe Flash Player support, SRS WOWHD audio and integrated noise-cancelation round out the main specs, though you also get 3G mobile hotspot sharing and all the usual Android apps. We rather liked the Incredible S' balance of power and battery life, so have high hopes for this CDMA version.
