Verizon’s HTC Droid DNA available now
Officially announced by Verizon and HTC last week, the Droid DNA can be purchased as of today from the largest US mobile carrier – both online, and in stores.
Verizon is asking $199.99 (on contract) for the Droid DNA. If you want to get the handset without an agreement, it will cost you $599.99.
As we previously reported, the new Droid from HTC can be bought for only $149.99 on contract via Wirefly.
The Droid DNA is the US-specific version of the HTC Butterfly J that was unveiled in October in Japan. It is the first smartphone to be launched Stateside with a 1920 x 1080 pixels display (5 inch, Super LCD 3). Obviously, the rest of its features are also high-end, including: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, HTC Sense 4+ UI, LTE connectivity, global roaming capabilities, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, Beats Audio, Bluetooth 4.0, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera with simultaneous HD video and image recording, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory (non-expandable, since there is no MicroSD card support), and a 2,020 mAh battery.
An international version of the Droid DNA should be introduced pretty soon, too. This version is currently codenamed HTC Deluxe, but will probably be released under a different name. We will let you know when we hear more on this.
