HTC Droid Incredible X possibly spotted with Verizon badging intact (Update: international variant could be ‘Deluxe’)
It’s about time. The HTC DLX has most often been rumored carrying a Verizon-style 6435LVW or Droid Incredible X name, and yet it was unveiled first in Japan as the J Butterfly; we really needed the photos just now surfacing at Android Central to remind us that the 5-inch, 1080p gigantophone could still come to Big Red. While nothing’s confirmed yet, the black-with-red-trim design and all too prominent Verizon labeling make a convincing case for the DLX’s ultimate US destination. A helpfully provided phone profile screen might be more interesting to some, as it hints that we might get the same quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM and 8-megapixel rear camera as in the J Butterfly — Verizon won’t pull a Droid Incredible 4G LTE and tone down the hardware, if this is true. Without any more details, we’re still left wondering just how soon Verizon could commit to launching the smartphone. There’s no guarantees that Verizon will follow KDDI’s schedule and ship in early December.
Update: We’ve been wondering whether the odd name was meant to be short for Droid Incredible X, i.e. “DIX” instead of “DLX,” but our friend evleaks just showed us a list of device PIDs that mentions DLX. evleaks also suggests that it might be short for “Deluxe” for the international market, just as “ENR” is short for “Endeavor.” Check out the list right after the break.

Followers of FreedomPop’s saga have actually seen the fledgling data-only company make a few audacious claims: providing free of cost bandwidth, for one, and basing its 4G tool lineup as much on iPhone sleeve instances as on typical access points. Bring one more one to the list– the MVNO is organizing to switch from Clearwire’s WiMAX network to Sprint’s LTE prior to 2012 is over. While FreedomPop is still organizing to go forward with WiMAX for the preliminary implementation, it’s now wanting to utilize tri-mode EV-DO, LTE and WiMAX modems and phone situations just months later on. We’ll see if that leads to existing iPhone 4 and 4S managers getting an LTE fix without having to spring for a new phone; marketing VP Tony Miller wouldn’t advise GigaOM more. Either method, it’s a mixed good thing for data abusers that may find themselves crashing that much quicker with the 500MB regular cap on free of cost information.

News that Apple ’ s brand-spankin ’ brand-new Maps application wouldn ’ t have complete functionality across all of their iOS 6-capable tools struck lots of as a significant blow this week. Apple ’ s known to keep flagship features on flagship devices, so relegating turn-by-turn navigation and the 3D “ Flyover ” method to the iPhone 4S and new iPad just fits with that method.
But it turns out that a Russian internet site called iGuides has actually fractured the instance, at the very least where Flyover method is concerned. Without even using Cydia, the hackers have actually identified a method to obtain Maps up and running on an iPhone 4, consisting of Flyover. Sadly, turn-by-turn navigation is still a trouble spot.
Before we go any sort of additional, I need to instill a sense of caution within your bit of hacker heart. Not only is the app a bit rough around the edges on the iPhone 4, however the instructions on how to port the software program over to your older-generation tool are converted from Russian. So please, be careful.
As you can see in the video clip, the phone he ’ s using to demo doesn ’ t have the iPhone 4S ’ s second antenna band on the side. You can look into the functional Flyover method below, and directions can easily be located here.

We managed to see plenty of the LG Revolution at both CES and Mobile World Congress, and it’s now finally cleared one of the final hurdles on its way to availability. While there’s unfortunately none of the usual teardown pictures to be found just yet, the phone has now passed all of the FCC’s various tests, and been slapped with the requisite label to prove it. Sadly, we still don’t have much indication of a release date but, as Wireless Goodness points out, there’s an increasingly good chance that this could actually be Verizon’s first 4G phone if the HTC Thunderbolt delays continue.
