The Droid Incredible will launch later this month

We've been talking about the HTC Incredible for quite some time now, but it appears that the long wait is about to end. The Android junkies over at Phandroid have uncovered a staging site for the HTC Incredible, which is now known as the Droid Incredible.

The site allows you to enter your email address and receive more information on the phone and its availability. The site also notes that the phone is coming April 29.

The Droid Incredible will pack quite a punch when it launches later this month. The smartphone will feature a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot for extra storage), an 8MP camera, 3.7-inch AMOLED display (480x800) and will of course come preloaded with Android 2.1.

HTC, the maker of the Droid Incredible, is reportedly in the running to purchase Palm. An acquisition of Palm would give HTC the rights to webOS which could make for some truly powerful smartphones in the future – HTC's hardware prowess and the innovative webOS software platform would be an extremely tough adversary for Apple's headline-grabbing iPhone.

Verizon has just made the Droid Incredible official. The device will be priced at $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. The Droid Incredible can be pre-ordered online starting April 19. You can catch the full press release here.

"Droid" is just a nickname for the Android OS, so I assume that Moto can't do anything about it. But who knows... these days I wouldn't be surprised if George Lucas tried to sue Google, Moto, and HTC for using the word "droid".

Actually VZW apparently licensed the name from Lucas ;) see the above post.

But it's only a nickname that can be used by Verizon, in the U.S. at least.

Lucky guess on my part. That's really funny.
