Part shortage? We all know that the incredible isn't doing as well because though it has good specs, it does not have a keyboard or dedicated camera button. Its too similar to other existing devices and with the loss of a keyboard, and physical camera button, people just don't want to lose features to gain features. When will they learn?

Lol. Are you serious? Really? Really? Please post anything where that has been reported as the case. What part of "supplies sold out in an hour".."phones being delivered mid-june", say's they are having problems selling? It is a fact that a shortage of parts(the amoled screen apparently) that is holding up sales of the Incredible. Stop wearing your fanboyism on your sleeve. I will say that VZW dropped the ball with this launch. The Incredible is the best thing going for them right now and they have none to sell. This will come back to bite them in the ass.

Not when the DROID is still flying out the doors. Most still want a keyboard.

I was a big keyboard fanboy for a long time, however not anymore. Have you used the iphone's virtual key board it rocks, and so do the virtual keyboards of the droid eris and droid incredible. Who in their right mind would want a physical keyboard anymore getting in the way??? Can i say clumsy and they will, not might WILL, break! I say give me Tony Stark tech, if only it were real that would ROCK!

Keyboard is overrated on a phone, but I love my TILT keyboard. However, I would buy the INCREDIBLE right now if AT&T carried the phone.

I ordered the incredible on THURSDAY of last week at a VZW Store.. A lady i know who ordered hers on WEDNESDAY of last week at the SAME VZW STORE received hers yesterday! I have yet to see any shipment notification in my email or tracking information and after calling Verizon I was told "Your phone will ship on June 15th" ... So my question is HOW are they shipping certain people their phones and not others???

Gee, sure glad I hurried and ordered mine the weekend it came out, and had it by the beginning of May! Having to wait for this baby would be maddening. However, hang in there those who have ordered it and are waiting, WELL worth the wait. This is simply the best phone ever!

Honestly I am jeaslous of Evo a little for the HD camera mostly and large screen, not the 4g are you kidding?, but my incredible is gorgeous very new tech and FAST! worth the wait for sure. Glad I only had to wait the first pre order stages, I got mine April 28th.

If they aren't going to have any more shipments until middle of June they are going to lose a lot of sales with the EVO coming out.

Its not that there won't be more shipments until mid June, its a rolling ordering system. Customers who order today will have their phone shipped say June 17th (not exact dates, but sales rep could tell you exact shipping day), those ordring tomorrow shipped by the 18th and so on. And who may pay a possible ETF rather than wait a few weeks for an awesome device?
