    This leaked document from an unspecified source seems to indicate that the HTC Vigor will be coming to Verizon as soon as October 13th. Furthermore, it's name will change to become the HTC Droid Incredible HD. More of its specs have been displayed in the leak as well:
    • 4G LTE
    • 1.5GHz Dual-core processor
    • 4.3" Screen with either 800 x 480 or 1280 x 720 resolution?
    • Gingerbread
    • 8MP Camera in back
    • 2MP Camera in front
    • 1620 mAh battery
    • Mobile Hotspot Capable for 10 devices
    • class 10 32GB microSD card
    • A set of Beats by Dr Dre studio earbuds
    Those specs seem amazing, and actually could give the Bionic some serious competition (except for the battery); however, there is something suspect about this "leak." The doc indicates a WVGA resolution for the screen which is just 800 x 480, but it also indicates a resolution of 1280 x 720. This is a contradiction that could either be a minor typo, or could indicate that the doc is simply a fake created by an overzealous fan-boy. Which do you guys think is the case?

    If the name of the phone has "HD" in it and it has a 800 x 480 display? Major fail!

    yeah i'm curious about the display as well. hopefully it's not some software tweak or trickery to make it hd. 10/13 was done on purpose which is just outside my 30 day window (costco return) from my bionic. lol

    Never liked the name Vigor. Either way, if this is real, I'll still probably wait to see some official word on the Prime before I make my decision.

    Doesn't bullet-point 3 say "HD resolution of 1280 x 720"? I know there's an asterisk after but I can't see what it's attached to.

    I'll be surprised if it gets 6 hours off the charger when it is released.

    If this has even 12 hours battery life it will be my next phone! VZW tried 3 times this weekend to upgrade me and I told them I am waiting on this one

    I know the VZW store guys usually know everything after everyone else, but i just came back from the store (played with the bionic some more) and both guys confirmed that both Vigor and Prime are coming sometime in Oct. According to what they know (which is not much lol) Vigor is named Vigor and will have GB. Prime will be loaded with the Ice Cream (they said Cone) Sandwich...

    So does this mean that either these leaks are false or that the one's that said the Vigor was the Thunderbolt 2 are false?

    I wouldn't relay on what they say to decide what is true or false but i do like the fact that they are aware of the phones and know of an oct' release...
