At this point, Verizon’s upcoming 4G-friendly Android phone, the HTC Thunderbolt, is about as secret as my undying love for oxygen. While its gone by different names over time (from the Incredible HD, to “Mecha”, to the current Thunderbolt moniker), we’ve seen leak, after leak, after leak with this thing. One thing, however, has managed to remain elusive: the spec sheet. In… → Read More
While they’ve tried to be pretty hush-hush about the specifics, HTC and Verizon have made it pretty dang clear that they plan to launch a 4G phone at CES — and unless the rumor mill is way, way off, it’ll be the handset thus far known by its rumored codenames: the Incredible HD, or “Mecha”. Neither of those names really captures the 4G spirit, though. Incredible HD… → Read More
After yesterday’s slightly sheisty and very-much-controlled “leak” of a half dozen ultra close-up shots of the Verizon-4G-ready HTC Incredible HD (otherwise known as “Mecha”), I’m almost tired of seeing this thing.

Last week we reported on the new almost-an-EVO from HTC that’s making its way to Verizon in the near(ish) future. And I have it on pretty good authority that you loved it.
So, you’ll be pleased to know that the upcoming (but still nameless) device has had its required photo-shoot with the FCC, and we have some more photos for you. → Read More
Another day, another leaked Android handset to lust over. This one looks like it just might dethrone the Droid X as Verizon’s flagship Android device — or at least give it one hell of a fight. The Droid X isn’t the only handset in danger of taking some damage from this one, though; this things a near one-to-one match with the Sprint EVO 4G, both in looks and specs.
Hear that rumble? That’s… → Read More
