HTC Droid Incredible to get VCAST App store next week?
As we reported, Verizon plans on offering competition to the Android Market in the form of the VCAST App store. The store will be available to all of the carrier's Android models running 2.2-including the first-gen Motorola DROID. Big Red has announced that the HTC Droid Incredible will be the first handset to receive the new app store which will be downloaded onto the phone via an OTA upgrade.

No date was given by Verizon for the update, but with a number of new Android phones getting launched on November 11th, that would seem to be an appropriate date to roll-out the download for the HTC Droid Incredible. The new app store from Verizon will permit you to purchase an app and have it billed to your monthly invoice from the carrier. It is also thought that the store will offer some titles that are exclusive to Verizon.

Other changes to the handset expected from the OTA upgrade include support for Yahoo! IMAP e-mail, improvements for YouTube, Google Maps, Flash and Slacker radio.
