Verizon’s 5 inch phone, now believed to be heading to market as the HTC DROID DNA, has been in the news quite a lot lately. Just yesterday a page for it was discovered on a Verizon support page. The would-be page (it was linked but there was no content) suggested Verizon was close to getting the phone ready for launch because, well, it would be a mistake to launch a phone without support documents for users who need help.

Well, another piece of evidence suggests that Verizon will soon begin to market the DROID DNA. Evleaks has posted a leak of what looks to be the DROID DNA, and considering the context of the image (the device sits within some futuristic setting) it looks like this might be a snippet from one of those elaborate banner ads or a DROID DOES landing page.

Regardless, it looks like Verizon and HTC are gearing up to drop this 5 inch bomb that looks to cause more than just a few ripples this holiday season. It’ll be interesting to see what they do in terms of timing with the Galaxy Note 2 launching at the end of this month. It was said that that particular device was scheduled so late into the month in order to make room for major marketing for the DROID RAZR HD devices, though that is something we likely won’t get confirmation on.

Indications originally pointed to a November release for the DROID DNA, though @evleaks is saying to expect this one early December. It should be an interesting six weeks for Big Red should things go according to rumored plans. Is anyone waiting to see what HTC and Verizon have up their sleeves with this release or will you go a different route for your holiday smartphone purchase?
