HTC Incredible spotted in Verizon's system

HTC-Incredible-CelleBrite

Looks like the DROID’s days of being Verizon’s hero device are numbered because references to the next great Android smartphone to hit up Big Red, the HTC Incredible, have been found within a CelleBrite, a tool used by employees for transferring user info from one handset to another. Typically when a device shows up in a CelleBrite it means that we’re on the figurative eve of release, although in the past there have been some notable exceptions. All we know is that Verizon better get off its duff and get as many people locked into contracts as fast as it can, because come summer it’s going to have to fend off not only the new iPhone but the EVO 4G.

Thanks, Steven! More →

BlackBerry Tour2 9650 makes its debut in Cellebrite, Verizon launch imminent?

ESSEX-CELLEBRITE

Good news for Verizon Wireless BlackBerry customers that passed on the Storm 2 and the Curve 8530 in order to wait for the Tour2. The much-awaited BlackBerry 9650 was spotted by a Verizon Wireless employee while browsing through Cellebrite, a system used for transferring contacts from one phone to another. There is no confirmed time frame from when a phone appears in Cellebrtie to when it is launched but, in general, a phone’s appearance in Cellebrite is a good indication that a launch is somewhat imminent, though this isn’t a science and is not foolproof. While you wait for this beautiful BlackBerry to hit the shelves, you can drool over the pictures in our hands-on gallery. More →

Verizon employees see the Motorola Sholes and Calgary emerge in internal tools?

Okay, this one might be a bit of a difficult thing for some people to accept considering it involves something that few people know about, but we’re going to throw caution to the wind and run wild with it. At pretty much every single Verizon retail outlet they have these little gizmos known as “Cellebrites”. These Cellebrites are used by Verizon employees to transfer customers data from phone to phone. And gee whiz, would you guess what two devices have popped up in the latest update for the Cellebrite? If you guessed the Motorola A855 Sholes/Shules/Droid/Tao and the Calgary A555, you’d be bang on. Mmm hmm. And of course you know what this means, right? Yes indeed, we might soon be treated to some official details of the already accidentally/on-purpose leaked devices. Hit the jump or some more pics of the now celebrated Cellebrite.
