HTC announced a 1080p smartphone in mid-October called the J Butterfly. We wondered when it would land in other countries, and sure enough it launched in the United States about a month later as the Droid DNA on Verizon. But what about Europe and other Asian countries?

An invite to an event held by both HTC and Verizon appears to state that they will reveal their ‘latest collaboration’, on November 13th in NYC.

HTC has finally announced an Android phablet of its own: the HTC Butterfly / DLX DROID DNA. Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in for a bit of trouble? Join us as we find out!
