    This is a rumor that has been floating around the web for a few weeks now, but we have some new independent corroboration that it is confirmed as accurate: The HTC Vigor will be released with the name the HTC Rezound. This comes from a reliable source within an internal Verizon meeting.

    Of course, the original story showed the name in a Verizon database, so it seemed quite plausible. The only thing that wasn't sure before was that the HTC Vigor and the Rezound were the same phone. Now, we are fairly confident of the connection. What do you think of the name?

    I wish I had a job naming phones...I like the Vigor name better. But I guess this one will grow on me. :)

    I liked Incredible HD and Vigor better than Rezound but it looks like this phone will be approaching soon.

    Ahh f stop at 2.2 that is good. That rivals the i*hone 4s. But I honestly haven't heard much on the new sensation. I guess I'm not really into tmobile even though they get some nice phones.

    I read in another thread that L stands for launch kit. I guess like the posters and stuff?

    So I guess the big HTC event on the 6th (today) had nothing to do with the Vigor/ReZound...

    "Exclusive rumor"

    Isn't an "exclusive rumor" a contradiction of terms? How could a rumor be exclusive? LMAO!

    I see what you are saying, but but no, not even a little bit.... exclusive means that no one else has this rumor but the poster and it being a rumor just means that it is unconfirmed. Basically it means they have a source that is telling only them something, but they can't verify that the source is 100% accurate.
