Buy HTC Droid Incredible 2 Today or Wait for iPhone 5?

The cell phone market is certainly heating up with the white iPhone 4 joining in the mix today but it’s not the only device hitting the carriers, another that may be a little overshadowed by Apple’s popularity is the HTC Droid Incredible 2. OSM’s Debbie Turner previously reported that today would in fact be the release date and so it is.

The big question on our mind is do we buy the HTC Droid Incredible 2 Today or do we wait for the iPhone 5 which is due in September. As we all know Apple generally set the trend with devices such as the iPad in the tablet PC market and the first iPhone in the cell phone market, when they were released all of the other manufacturers followed suit.

The HTC Droid Incredible II (2) is now available at Verizon for $199.99 as told by Phandroid’s Chris Chavez in a recent article and sure enough you can order yours from the official Verizon Wireless page. You have to wonder if manufacturers intentionally offer devices on the same days as others.

Did Apple pin point today to release the white iPhone 4 and try to steal some of the potential sales of the HTC Droid Incredible 2 before gearing up for the iPhone 5 release? Apple could be using the white iPhone 4 as a stop-gap until the iPhone 5 is ready.

Will you buy the HTC Droid Incredible 2 today or are you going to wait for the iPhone 5? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.

    Why wait. The original incredable did live up to it’s name and now with a new upgraded version, I an most certain we will not be disappointed. I admit the rumors about the iPhone 5 sound great but like I said they are rumors. The release date is a big ? still. Upgrade now by the time iPhone 5 comes out the 6 will be right around the corner with you ready for a new upgrade to the 6 from the incredible 2.

    Hold off and get the iPhone 5…

    Perfect example…My friend and I were rock climbing and we were pinned into a ledge and had to be rescued from the mountain. During the time it took LVPD Search and Rescue to find us my friends Incredible's battery died! My iPhone has 59% battery left…

    When we left the house that morning we both took our phones off the chargers at about the same time!

    Im not knocking the droid market but I am saying that most of their phones don't carry the quality of any of my Apple products. (2: iPhone 4's, 1: iPad 1: Airport Extreme 1: MacBook Pro 4: iPods)
