Saw this.

 

I think I would wait to see what HTC and Verizon have cooked up for the fall. I expect an iPhone 5 competitor with dual or quadcore S4 Pro and possible LightField camera since the S4 Pro supports it.

Interesting, with Verizon being the only carrier not to have a One X offshoot (EVO LTE included), this could be their phone of the year.

 

Although, I seriously doubt it will dent the iPhone sales.

I thought their offshoot was the Droid Incredible 4G LTE

I guess you can say its more of a One S jr. It has an s4 krait but its underclocked to 1.2ghz and I don't think it has the image sense chip, it also has 8gb of storage. Personally I don't understand why verizon would go with watered down specs. I wonder if they will find a way to gimp the gs3 as well.

Maybe price point?

 

That, and people believe Verizon is infallible.

The Droid Incredible line has always been for girls. Someone speculated that the processor was underclocked for battery life. As far as memory, the memory is expandable, I am a fan of more on-board memory for apps and that, but if you just want MP3/video storage, a microSD works great.

I know memory is expandable but why not just release the actual one s and just call it the incredible 4g lte? Its bad enough tmobile wants 199 for a one s when you can get the better one x and even better evo lte(based on specs) for the same price(not comparing networks). If this phone was priced at 149 or even 99 then it wouldn't be so bad.

 

Edit:

 

I don't know how true this is but from what I could fine this phone comes in at almost 12mm thick. I mean that considerably thicker than any other one series variant.

I agree, I had read that the DINC3 would be at $150 because if it is the same price as the GS3 you would have to be in love with HTC or the Droid text message notification to buy this over the GS3.

 

The thing I find funny is that both HTC and Samsung come out and say, "we are consolidating our lines and we will not be releasing custom phones for each carrier" Samsung follows through, but HTC... there is a vast difference for each carrier. I guess HTC doesn't have the clout to dictate what the individual carriers will accept.

On the flip side, the EVO and Droid Incredible line has a huge marketing and fan base behind it. It would be smart to stick with that branding. Samsung doesn't have that domestically, so they can change.

Yeah, that was my thinking, Sprint and Verizon probably talked HTC into continuing their lines to capture repeat sales, then since it was down to AT&T and T-Mobile at that point, they probably figured a quad core would market well for T-Mobile and AT&T could have the scraps...

Yeah, I don't think sprint would have sold as many evo's if it was simply called the one x. The evo name has a lot of value to sprint.

I saw an article suggesting Verizon getting a 1080p 1.7GHZ 1X variant soon.....

    • Crunching the numbers a bit more, covering the full MSA would result in slightly under 80% population coverage. But they'd have to deploy on essentially every micro/macro cell in the area.   Yeah, I'm not gonna pretend like I know how either negotiations with squatters or Auction 108 will pan out. That said, I can't see 3.45GHz being *that* valuable to squatters considering the strict buildout requirements.  Another interesting thought I had was a possible spectrum trade with Dish. Dish is still leasing 600MHz to T-Mobile in quite a few metro areas, and I'm sure T-Mobile is looking ahead to what their lowband spectrum situation will be once those leases expire. If T-Mobile is truly going to rely on n71+n41 CA as much as they say they will, it sure would be nice to be working with more than 5MHz-10MHz of n71 uplink capacity. Don't go quoting me on that, though, total (pipedream) speculation haha.
    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
