HTC’s new Droid “Incredible” from Verizon, with Skype & NFL

Unchecked by Apple’s patent lawsuit, HTC is rolling out some slick new Android 2.1-based smartphones, including the Droid Incredible announced today.

Verizon will start offering the Incredible on April 29 for $200 (after a $100 rebate) with a two-year voice and data contract starting at $70 per month.

The Incredible has a “topographic” design with ridges on the back that are intended to reflect the stuff inside. Verizon’s press release said it “demonstrates the powerful engineering just beneath the surface.”

Maybe the ridges will make it easier to grip than some other smartphones. But I’ll bet bigger selling points will be the red speaker grill and accent ring around the camera lens.

That powerful engineering includes the now obligatory 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, plus an 8 megapixel camera, a digital compass and a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen.

Verizon’s also releasing exclusive Skype and NFL apps “shortly after the phone becomes available.”

Here’s the list of features:

Android 2.1 with HTC Sense experience

1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

Friend Stream for unified Flickr, Facebook and Twitter updates

“Leap” view for quick access to all seven home screen panels

8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash

Razor-sharp 3.7 inch WVGA (480×800) AMOLED capacitive touch display

Optical joystick

Dedicated, touch-sensitive Home, Menu, Back and Search keys

Proximity sensor, light sensor and digital compass

Integrated GPS

Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g)

3.5 mm headset jack
