I got this information from another forum where the person ACTUALLY has the phone in hand and provided pictures of the phone and the box with the phone and his name on a piece of paper behind it. With all the rumors that have been spread lately, this guy states alot of facts about the phone.
1. It comes with 2.2.1 installed
2. NO netflix
3. The battery is 1400 mah
4. Skype does come installed on the phone
5. It will do voice and data at the same time on 3G.
That's about all for now but it atleast will not get people's hopes up that think it will come with a bigger battery or netflix. He does say that the battery is not near as bad as some people have reported.
You can search droid forums and find the same info, but I just figured I would share since everyone was given false information yesterday.

Thanks for posting. I would still take anything that isnt final build with a grain of salt, apps can easily be added via an OTA update.

its also worth nothing that he was doing his testing in a non-LTE area, and since we suspect that lte has a large part to do with the battery life, battery life could still very well be horrible...

But there not adding things last minute. Vzw has these phone already htc sent them weeks ago.. this is all vzw holding back because there Lte network is busted

Sources? I don't want second hand information about some guy who called an HTC rep. We all know "reps" are on a need to know basis and usually just spit out information to "satisfy" the customer.

I'm sold on the Sammy Stealth V... the Thunderbolt would just be a larger Incredible for me since I won't be getting LTE until the end of the year.

Isn't anyone concerned that this guy JUST got his tester phone? Does anyone know how long these test things usually last? I am assuming Verizon will have like 100 questions for him so that they could actually USE the information to make final changes? And what is up with the lack of 4G?

definitely annoyed at vzw, if i know they are launching the darn phone in april or may, i would very likely go ahead with another phone. i dont care enough about LTE that much to keep waiting. anybody remember how the first rumor started? Verizon DID say 1Q2011 right??? i forget already, since there've been so many darn delays @.@

We know that Feb 14th was supposed to be the launch date, especially since Best Buy had preorders as early as the 6th. Naturally, HTC had manufactured and sent a mass of devices to Verizon for testing before then in order to achieve a launch on this date.

We know that the launch has been delayed since then for a variety of reasons, all of which culminate simply to VZW's network not being ready for the release of their first 4G phone (battery-draining LTE and Skype/Hotspot issues) thanks to multiple reports and even leaked screenshots of VZW's internal systems.

It is safe to assume that they had many devices in their hands for a few weeks and are only now mass-producing them now that they have a reasonable software image to flash onto these devices.

No matter when it's coming, it's still sexy as hell.
