So, that lovely 4.3-inch LTE
smartphone with Android for Verizon we've been calling the Mecha
and the Droid Incredible HD
? Looks like it might come to market as the Thunderbolt, so says Droid Life
-- and we tend to put some weight on the rumor considering that they've just run twelve leaked shots of the thing. As you can see, this is clearly Verizon's head-on answer to the EVO 4G
, featuring similar stylings and, in all likelihood, an LTE modem swapped in for the EVO's WiMAX one. Sure looks like that "controlled" leak
from a few days back, doesn't it? More on this at Verizon's press conference next week, we presume.
