Verizon Recommends Accessories for the “Vigor by HTC” on Their Website

This is a bit interesting. Eagle-eyed members of have spotted accessories recommended by Verizon for the “Vigor by HTC” on Big Red’s website itself. The accessories themselves aren’t worthy of mention – they are generic accessories meant for any device – but the fact that Verizon’s apparently referring to this phone as the Vigor is.

We entertained the possibility that Verizon could go with a different name for retail but this tells us they could be going with this na,e. Nothing’s ever set in stone, of course, but the fact alone that they’re setting up pages for the phone on their site gives us enough reason to be excited. [Thanks NightAngel79!]

  • froyoman

    Zounds better than the other name I’ve heard mentioned.

    • NightAngel79

      I see what you did there! :)

    So keep your eyes peeled to

    That’s the page for the Vigor. This is my Thunderbolt replacement and will be my first Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) device…unless the Nexus S 4G I gave my girlfriend gets it first!

    • Boss_ASU

      Have heard zero rumors of Vigor launching with ICS. Maybe an update deep into 2012. Am I wrong about this? Heck, Gingerbread is going to be enough of a treat for me as I’m still rockin’ the OG Moto Droid!

    • chris125

      wont launch with ics

      • dalex7777

        Hoping this is rootable so we can get ICS on it. Would finally be willing to give up Sense for ICS.

    • Cowql8er

      Definitely won’t upstage the Prime by launching this with ICS. All rumors have it 2.3.x.

  • tz3026

    I’m excited.

  • YamiYaiba

    Quentyn, this post stinks *buh dum tss*

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    I’m so thankful for RSS feeds. They preserve those golden moments even post edit.

    I’d be shocked if the name didn’t include the words “Droid”

  • King_James_The_Wicked

    Bring on the Vigor… I am so so so ready for this phone to drop. I hope it has ICS but it will not be a deal breaker…

    • NightAngel79

      Absolutely NO chance it launches with ICS

  • veccster

    Maybe lame that I put so much weight into a name but I don’t think I would be happy buying a phone called the Rezzound. I could live with Vigor though.
    But I also wouldn’t be happy buying anything know the Prime is right around the bend packing superior technology. Beats ‘sounds’ cool though…

  • Christopher Davis

    Sounds great, you have one more typo in it if you wanted to fix it 2nd line of 2nd paragraph the word “name” is “na,e”. Just to help you out there. In any case great find that’s for sure.

    Loved seeing this, many thanks to the great members hanging out in the Vigor section @ androidforums!!
