HTC Droid Incredible appears on offical Verizon page, comes April 29
Yes, your eyes are not lying to you - Verizon will soon announce the Incredible as the Droid Incredible. Why? How?  Just a few hours ago we saw that Verizon employees are reportedly getting ready for a training session with the hot device, and now the handset has finally appeared on an official Verizon staging page... as the HTC Droid Incredible. The Droid Incredible will be introduced to the world on April 29, just as it was rumored.

The Android smartphone itself looks very nice and has an industrial design, with Verizon-like red accents, which fit perfectly with the jet black body. Of course, HTC's Sense UI is also there to provide you with a better overall experience. You can check the page through our source link.

So now we have a question for you. Which one seems cooler to you: the Google-powered Nexus One, which is also expected soon with Verizon (how about a Droid Nexus One?) or the Sense-packing HTC Droid Incredible? Or maybe you want to experience the WiMAX power of the almighty HTC EVO 4G? Feel free to comment below!

Its coming out 2 months earlier with amoled display...and on a better network (assuming you don't have sprints 4g in your area like me. if you do though, i'd get the EVO in a heartbeat). Its hard to compare current tech with future tech. I guarantee when the EVO comes out, there will be an announcement for an even better phone 2 months later. The Incredible is among if not the best of all the current phones out there

I agree there is always gonna be a better phone with better specs and features its like you said 2 months later a better phone comes out but i wonder how its gonna be like maybe 5 years from now there will probably be a new and better phone coming out every couple weeks..

sprint has bested vzw in 3g data for years, 4g is just the icing on the cake. as for the screen, amoled is nice but the droid still looks better than the n1

Just a question but isn't 4G only available to business accounts?

Verizon is INCREDIBLY gay... this is going to be a nexus one with 'sense.' That's it... nothing ground breaking like the EVO or a new iphone. i love android but this is barely better than par.

you have issued if you think the phone is barely better than par.

there's nothing ground breaking about it. its another android thats barely keeping up with times... im not saying its bad. its just not a home run.

your comment is gay. a device does not have to be groundbreaking to serve it's purpose. haters need not troll.

need not? thanks for defending verizon yoda. like i said before: "... im not saying its bad. its just not a home run." it doesnt deserve a ton of hype. dont be myopic.

You have to weigh out the phone/network duo as opposed to the phone on its own. Comparing to an EVO or iPhone is silly because they don't run on the same network nor where they meant to do the same. The EVO is not only a super phone because of its specs but its a super phone because it HAS to be, it's launching 4G for Sprint. The iPhone is "superb" in its own right because it used to be unique/different and Apple. For Verizon, the Incredible IS a homerun. It's the top spec'ed phone (will be) and aside from a handful of features ... not many other phones regardless of the network surpass it.

need not just happens to be proper englilsh retard. Nice try though. What is so groundbreaking with the EVO anyway? 4G? Really? Faster data speeds arent really groundbreaking, more like expected.

Sprint has NEVER had a better 3g data than Verizon.

rjt, the only reason i disagree is with you, respectfully of course, is that even though it will be verizon's top spec'd phone, it really isn't paving the way for much down the road (like the Moto Droid or Nexus 1 when it first released with Tmo). If this was the first Verizon LTE phone, or if the specs of it were unprecedented, i could see this launch warranting a ton of hype. My favorite manufacturer is HTC, dating back to pocket pc's. They were the first to launch Android devices with the G1. But the reality right now is that there isn't very much seperating a 1Ghz processed Android phone from another. It needs a wow factor. The incredible is a very solid device, just about 6 months too late to be considered 'golden.'

"Ain't got nothing on the EVO"? Sorry but some people don't live in major cities where the EVO would tear it up on WiMax. Beyond that they are near identical.

no front facing cam, smaller screen, no 720p video, no mifi, no wimax support, no kickstand, no hdmi port

And it isn't necessarily major cities either. I live in Boise, ID and we were one of the ten launch cities for WiMax. It's simply where Clear and Sprint chose to put their WiMax

1.3 MP front facing cam? I will not be taking pics with that and what's the point of it of it with no video chat? Smaller OLED screen. There are few people who would use the 'mifi' type capabilities because of cost and what will more than likely be a 5GB limit like most of them now days. Kickstand? Meh. As for 720p I'll give you that and HDMI port I'll wait to see what apps will support that i.e. TV.com.

no cap on 4g, front facing cam is for video chat.

The Incredible's hardware is 720p capable like the Desire. All of the people knowledgable on these two phones say the capability will be unlocked in a software update. Front facing cam - I've got a laptop with a 2mp cam & it looks horrible so I can't see how a 1.3mp cam would be worth the effort. Bigger screen - nice but not a dealbreaker. Kickstand - don't see when I'd use it but I'd guess if there would be a demand one of the cover companies can integrate it into their product. The HDMI port would be nice, but it's a feature I personally wouldn't use much.

I didn't know Boise had WiMax, I'm going there tomorrow actually.

the front facing cam is not only for video chats its also for video calling my friend

First of all you dont need an 8 mp camera on BOTH sides of the phone, so dont play down a 1.3 mp front facing camera just to put it down. it's convenient and for creative app developers it will be great for video conferencing, VoIP, and augmented reality apps. the kickstand will definetly come in handy when youre streaming movies on your phone, especially when you're on a fast network... even sprint's 3g network just tested more reliable than verizons on PC world. And as for Wimax, Its only the most FORWARD COMPATIBLE 4g technology. it can be wimax, lte, or even wimax 2 with very little effort. and its here and now. dealbreaker would be that the EVO is slightly better in every way except cost of plan... WHICH is SIGNIFICANTLY LESS.

sprint's 3G network tested more reliable on average in the 13 cities tested in march/april of 2009... i applaud your ability to word this into your post as if this "just" happened. congrats on being reliable in 13 cities a year ago.

they did the test again this year moron:http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/PC-World-says-AT-T-best-in-3G-performance-tests-article-a_9794.h tml beginning of 2010 thanks for the ignorance.

ok fine. using the link you posted. i see... Sprint Avg d/l speed 795 kbps Avg u/l speed 396 kbps Avg reliability 94% (in 13 cities) Verizon Avg d/l speed 877 kbps (better than sprint) Avg u/l speed 434 kbps (better than sprint) Avg reliability 92% (in 13 cities) So thank you for pointing out an average 2% better reliability rating in 13 cities. That's truly a deal breaker.

Who said I was a fan boy? I'm here to point you out as being a dumba$$ - only reason I registered.

EVO sounds great, but I'm not sure about a screen that large. I'd just have hold it. I'm on VZW so EVO isn't an choice. I don't think anyone loses either way. 'bout time.
