It is finally here! The HTC Rezound has touched ground at Verizon all for the relatively “standard” $299. If you are not getting a new contract or using an upgrade, you are looking at $649.99. In addition, as usual, you must connect a 4G Verizon data plan to get the $299 price. More specifically, Verizon claims that their lowest data pack is $20, but when you click to see a full list of plans, $20 is no where to be found.

With the Galaxy Nexus “promotional material” set to be released in stores on November 17th, the HTC Rezound might be getting overshadowed. However, the specifications shown below, not to mention the free Beats, might be able to lure you away from waiting for that Galaxy Nexus. Which new “superphone” are you getting?
