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.
