It appears that the number one carrier in the good old US of A likes to make available to their employees limited edition versions of certain smartphones. The Big Red a while back made a special edition Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD available, and more recently the carrier was also making a limited edition HTC Windows Phone 8X available as an employee edition. And now it appears the Big Red has also added yet another Android smartphone to that employee edition list.
According to a report over on Droid-life, Verizon will be making the HTC Droid DNA employee edition available to their employees, and they have managed to get hold of the first available images of the limited edition Droid DNA in red.
The HTC Droid DNA limited edition employee edition smartphone will be made available exclusively in red, presumably to go along with the US carrier’s favoured colour, and this special edition of the Android Jelly Bean smartphone will not be available to purchase by anyone outside Verizon.
Apparently this Verizon special employee edition of the HTC Droid DNA will come packing a serial number marking the special handset on the rear along with the words ‘Verizon Employee Limited Edition.’
However it must be said that this limited employee edition of the Android handset is basically purely cosmetic, and nothing else with the Droid DNA has changed, so those workers that do get this edition will still have that 5-inch 1080 x 1920 touch screen, 8 megapixel rear facing auto-focus camera with LED flash, 2 megapixel front facing camera, 1.5GHz quad core processor Jelly Bean smartphone.
Of course as mentioned previously those who do not work for the Big Red will not be able to purchase this limited employee edition HTC Droid DNA from Verizon stores, but if you are feeling a tad jealous, and would really like to own one of these special edition red smartphones, no doubt in due course one or two of the handsets will show up on auction websites such as eBay.
So what do our readers think about this red HTC Droid DNA Verizon employee edition, would you like to own one if the opportunity arises, or are you quite happy with the retail version of the handset, and if one does happen to turn up for sale elsewhere would you be willing to shell out a few extra bucks to have a red DNA?
