HTC Droid Incredible on sale today at Verizon, new online orders delayed due to demand

HTC Droid Incredible on sale today at Verizon, new online orders delayed due to demand
The handset so incredible that it replaced the Nexus One at Verizon, the HTC Droid Incredible is now on sale for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate and your signature on a 2 year contract. Last week, as we reported, Google wrote on its Nexus One blog that those Verizon customers who were looking to purchase the N-One should instead buy the Droid Incredible. The latter model has a higher end camera (8MP vs. 5MP), an optical trackpad vs a trackball, offers slightly more RAM and is offered for sale at the store instead of just via Google's phone store on its web site. Those who pre-ordered the phone from Verizon should be getting a little bundle of joy delivered to the front door today. According to the Verizon web page, those who order the phone online today will get their phone shipped by May 4th because of heavy demand. The phone becomes Big Red's new flagship device and most reviewers are calling the Droid Incredible the best Android model of the current crop that is now available. If you pick  up the handset today, let us know if it's everything you were dreaming it would be.

Got mine yesterday too, but the flash is loose...you can hear it shaking around and when you take the battery door off you can wiggle it like a loose tooth...does yours do the same?

Got mine yesterday too, with the 2gb micro sd card. I haven't really have any flaws yet, other than the reception being a bit low compared to full bars with previous phone and battery drains fast, but again i was constantly playing with it. Awesome phone. The HTC Droid incredible is incredible. Must have.

No, I think you just have a defected unit. I just checked. You might want to take it to the store.

amazon looks like it has it for $99...Its not working for any of the zip codes i'm entering yet though. Have it preordered at bestbuy but I'd wait a week to save $100

Not sure why Verizon didn't advertise this phone at all. The general public has no idea it exists. I've seen websites bashing the lack of lines at stores but that would be expected on any device that wasn't advertised.

Maybe they didn't advertise it right away so they could have the first batch of customers test it out for any issues before they launch a huge campaign for it.

Very sexy phone as i suspected I think this one will def top every phone Verizon has ever had and dominate the market pretty seriously...its sad cause the Motorola Droid was Motorola's best phone and the spotlight is now away from it. Everyone I know has replaced their Motorola Droid with the INC lol...the funny part about it they did it without question

I did the same thing! I added another sec line to my account so I didn't have to pay full retail for it, but just got my Moto Droid a few months ago. Should be here within the next couple hours.

sprntfanboi02 you are a ghetto loser who cant afford verizon and didnt pass the credit check. thats why your a sprint fanboi..and let me guess you dont have one pair of pants that fit and your stoned as your reading this. Get a job, get a real service build your credit and be a tribute to society. sprint customers make me sick!

your name says it all. sad, really. Its okay, maybe one day when Sprint cant sustain themselves anymore, VZW will swoop in and save your sorry butts from obscutiry. until then, at least TRY and include some validity in your otherwise misguided and baseless comments.

no not at all. its a silky smooth finish it feels great in the hand. you don't even really notice the design. in photo's it makes the ridges look big but they aren't.

I've been up for my verizon new every 2 discount for the past 2 weeks. I've been holding out in hopes for the N1 to make its glorified appearance, only to be disappointed Monday. I went into the stores today to check it out (and other previous comments are correct, the lack of advertising, there was Maybe 1 other person in the store looking at the incredible, luckily they had 2 display models, but I spent a good hour and a half messing with it) instead of preordering (I'm still eyeing up the n1) Yes, yes it does. Its lightweight and uber cheap feeling. The plastic makes it feel feeble, like you could easily break the phone in the 1st 5 minutes of owning the device or if it were to get dropped, however slight a height, say good bye to your new toy. The overall design, back, entire shape and design, is cheap and ugly to me. I guess the others that have commented just like that sort of thing, or are new to this, but its as ugly in RL as it is in photos. I Will give it these few things... The optical trackpad is a lot nicer than I would have thought and it is super fast/responsive. It all comes down to what you like. What things you are willing to bend on in favor of what you are not.

Is there any alternative Android 2.1 phone for the GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile)? Not counting Nexus One. I was hoping HTC Desire to be in GSM....

Apple better do somethin innovative with this new iPhone...HD2, Incredible, EVO...HTC is comin with it right now. Snapdragon is on the prowl...and its gotta taste for Apples...get it? Womp Womp! I hate my Motorola Droid now lol.

I really wish my wife had stayed with Verizon...lol. There is good reason why this phone sold out - it is a great phone, but when you put it on the VERIZON network, it really stands out as VERIZON does not have much to offer for good phones, besides the DROID. AT&T is lagging behind in smartphones and I wish they would branch out past the IPHONE and BOLD. Looks like EVO 4G is for me :-)

Got mine yesterday also and a 2GB card! Love this phone! I owned the Droid before and right off the back you can see performance differences!

I my be wrong but I don't see anything really incredible about the phone. Yeah its got a 8. Mega camera and a faster processer which I didn't see much of a difference between my moto Droid opening up phonearena. I'm just going to wait and save my two year upgrade and wait for Verizon to release some more new phones and I don't see the point of changing phones now if they are getting ready to change to 4g and we still have to change phones again when 4g comes out and if your not eligible for a upgrade your still suck with a 3g phone. Unless they come out with a phone like the HTC 4g evo that's 3g/4g ready.

Does any previous Droid owner miss the 3D gallery that came with the 2.1 upgrade? Its not on the Incredible unfortunately, and I wish it were. But this phone is by far the best phone I have ever owned.
