    An official announcement from Verizon probably won't come until the Tuesday or Wednesday before release. Rumored dates put it at the 13th or the 20th. Within the next week we should start seeing more concrete rumors popping up.

    I'd love that. If the next Nexus isn't my thing, I'll probably get an international vigor.

    Somewhat related, but think I saw this guy having bluetooth 3.0. Is it just me or is this the first Android with 3.0?

    I cant wait either! I really think the lack of any info is worse than having be announced and just waiting for the release!

    Ive heard possible announcements Wednesday, Thursday, and next week. Pretty sure no one really knows lol

    The announcement on Thursday is in London, I highly doubt they would pick Europe to introduce VZW's next 4G phone.
    I'm really thinking it'll be next week.

    I think people are expecting the device being announced on Thursday to be the HTC Runnymede, or whatever they decide to name it. Especially considering Runnymede is a place just outside of London.

    No, the Vigor will get some sort of domestic announcement. Maybe at CTIA on the 11th? Idk, I hope it is soon.

    We should start to see cases arriving in Best Buys and Verizon stores late this week or early next week. An official announcement won't come until a day or two before it goes on sale (or preorder). After waiting for the DInc and the TBolt, my anticipation is high but measured this time around as I know setbacks come with the territorry here. It has NEVER been the first rumored date for an HTC Verizon phone, so I would say the 13th is out (we should have seen some cases by now) and the 20th looks good, backed up by the captured screenshot. Pre orders could go either way...

    I wonder if this phone will come with the bundle at Costco, similar to the bundle they offered up for the Bionic?

    Costco usually does something interesting to sweeten the deal for top tier phones.

    Why wait for the Vigor? Just go buy yourself a Bionic!

    I was looking at this thread just for kicks, but I bought my Bionic a couple of days after launch as my local Costco sold out so quickly the first couple of days. I love my Bionic!! It's fast on 4G/LTE, stable, plays Netflix, easy to connect to my computers via USB, and did I say lightning fast?

    Anyways, do yourself a favor and just get the Bionic. I'm sure glad I did!

    I would have if wasn't for the PenTile screen. I know I'm being picky here, but I expected more from the Bionic. Aside from 4G and more RAM it didn't seem like a big enough leap to leave my DX2 for.

    Now the Vigor has all the features of the Bionic PLUS: HD 720P screen (non PenTile), 1.5Ghz processor, better audio(Beats by Dre) and IMHO a better UI.

    Yes, the Bionic is a great phone, I personally know 3 people that have it. But for me the Vigor brings more to the table.

    I'm selling my bionic the second I get the Vigor. The bionic is nice, but the screen is a dealbreaker for me. 80% of the time it really isn't that bad. But that 20% when it is has me shaking my head. And I don't want my phone to make me feel like that.

    The only thing missing from this phone is ICS. If it has ICS, I'm sold.

    If the phone launches on schedule, and the Prime launches on schedule, (rumored as the dates may be) I can assure you that devs will have an ICS build out by Christmas if you are willing to root and flash it... If you are going to wait for the VZW "official" ICS, keep your pants on because you will be waiting a while.

    I would imagine with the Vigor's specs matching so closely with the Galaxy Nexus, that it will probably get ICS sometime in Q2 of next year (after the Bionic and SGSII variants).

    Personally, with today's news of the Sensation XL announcement, I'm with the OP on going nuts waiting for them to officially announce this device. It's almost tearing at my very soul lol

    I'm thinking now, that I will just get whatever comes out to the market first.

    It's sad as I am a big fan of the Sense UI, but damn HTC doesn't make devices with bad-*** specs like Samsung

    If I am elgible for an upgrade next month, do you think Verizon will let me pre-order the Vigor?
