Atleast it looks different. This over the boring Nexus One anyday, especially if the 1 gb of RAM rumor is true.

It looks like crap compared to the N1. What the hell is going on with the back cover, and that's a little too much red. But hey, if you're cool with that, who am I to tell you otherwise.

@ 203RichBoy Fail. It doesn't have 1GB of ram. Plus this article clearly states it has 500MB of ram.

@ Rhomaion & Herbiederb Assholes, before I read this I also read this http://androidandme.com/2010/0
3/news/new-verizon-htc-incredible-pics-and-specs/Thats why I said I hope the RUMOR is true. PhoneArena is not the only cellphone site and certainly not always accurate!

I wanted this phone because of Sense but the underclock sucks.. Do you think that there will be a way of overclocking it back with software like they used on the Droid?

HTC doesnt generally lock their phones down tight, so I would expect this phone to be rooted rather quickly, and yes there are plenty of overclocking tools out there. you can probably safely overclock it to 1.2-1.3ghz.... so no worries.

Probably not... its going to be like walking around with a lap top in your pocket!

the rumored specs have it smaller/lighter than the N1, so I'd say so.

I wouldn't hold too much light to this article in the first place.

I actually like the red. I am saddened the underclocked processor, but if it is indeed a snapdragon, you can just overclock it 1GHz and wouldn't have to worry about it overheating as it can handle that anyway. If the droid can get to 1.1, the snapdragon can get to 1.3 comfortably.

there are already apps for the n1 and have been for other phones that will let you tweak or overclock the core processor. I am almost 100% sure you will be able to oc the snap dragon in this phone. Just depends on how you feel about battery life. The 8mp camera is a nice addition. Wish they could confirm it has wifi or not. I remember back in the day when I had my original Envy. You could buy an over sized battery that would give you twice the amount of life but it looked like a tumor on the back of the phone. I wish they still tried to do that with phones. Offer a larger battery at a high price. You would obviously need a bigger back piece but to some people it might be worth it.

I dont know? i guess some people expected more, but this is a huge step up from a droid eris that i have which im content with, no i dont want a motorola droid for other reasons, and im not crazy about the nexus 1 for lack of sense UI, but a HTC phone with more then a 500hz processer is way faster to me and more potential and powerful then some phones on the adroid market.

Who cares if it is underclocked? If 99 out of a 100 people didn't know that, they'd never notice. This thing will perform just fine, and anyone who complains is a techie head case.

you all are complaining about the underclocking. i just want the device, now they are saying may?!? first it was march, then april now MAY! AHHHH.... whenever it comes out it'll be awesome.

You people need to wait until the device is released before you get your panties in a bunch. Knowing HTC, I wouldn't be very surprised if it's just a setting change that will bump it back to the full 1ghz. If not, it's not like it's going to be hard to change.
