    The Verizon and HTC joint press event just kicked off, and just as predicted the HTC Droid DNA was just officially announced. The phone is up for pre-order now, and will hit retail shelves on November 21st. The device will sell for $199.99 on a new Verizon contract. The new superphone/phablet has some serious specs which you can see below.
    • 5-inch HD 1080p Super LCD 3 screen (1920x1080) - 440PPI
    • 8MP, f/2.0, 28mm wide angle lens, smart LTE flash, BSI sensor, autofocus, HTC ImageChip and 1080p HD video recorder; 2.1MP front-facing camera with BSI sensor and 1080p video recorder.
    • 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 and MDM9615m Graphics
    • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean + HTC Sense 4+
    • 16GB eMMC, (11GB usable storage)
    • 2 GB RAM
    • 2020mAh lithium ion - embedded
    • 4G LTE, CDMA, Quad GSM, Quad UMTS
    • Wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n
    • 141 x 70.5 x 9.73 mm

    • 3.5mm 2.55v stereo audio jack
    • Dual microphone noise cancellation
    • Embedded wireless charging
    • G-sensor, ambient light sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor, gyro sensor
    This is one powerhouse device! It's pretty good looking too. This is like a nerd's ultimate wish-list of features, although the battery is a bit weaker than the rumors suggested and is not removable. Still, it has embedded wireless charging which might offset that inconvenience a tad for some. What do you guys think? Does it wow enough?

    HTC hit a homerun with this handset. They needed something big (no pun intended) and this handset definitely delivers the goods.

    Pretty good! Too bad it'll probably only see one software upgrade in it's lifetime.

    You are absolutely correct in that HTC ruined the thunderbolt by ONLY updating it to Gingerbread despite all of their promises for more updates. I love this phone but the fact that I have a thunderbolt is making me leary of buying it.

    The battery, The battery, the battery. Beautiful phone, but with those specs I'm thinking thunderbolt with no removable battery. Happy Charging. ;)

    ^^^ precisely... maybe get a case with a built in battery like all those iPhone ones? Oh wait... the defeats the purpose.

    this is one incredibly sexy looking phone, but that battery... why HTC... and I hate sense more than Samsung's UI...

    but that screen... that screen is beautiful.
