Red accented HTC Incredible & Nexus One being delayed by Verizon?
At this point it's pretty much safe to say that we'll eventually see the HTC Incredible make its way to Verizon's lineup alongside the Nexus One – which of course has been officially confirmed during the Nexus One's unveiling back in January. After we reported on how the Nexus One was experiencing some issues with multi-touch, Big Red has ceremoniously placed the brakes on its launch indefinitely until things have been ironed out with it – there's no questioning the strict tests and guidelines that Verizon imposes on its handsets before making it available. With that in the books, it looks like the Nexus One might be delayed by Verizon until the end of this month. Now there are juicy pieces of news are surrounding one of its brothers – the HTC Incredible. It's rumored to utilize the same exact touchscreen as the Nexus One, so Big Red is also dishing out the same grueling process on that handset to meet its expectations – potentially causing it to be delayed until May. Additionally there were some shots taken of the HTC Incredible with red colored accents used on its buttons and possibly a red colored rear cover. We know that Verizon customers are really aching to see these handsets already, but its good to see that Big Red doesn't want to see any headaches come out of its launches – it only accentuates their stance on providing the best handsets out there.

If this thing performs as good as it looks, it will be my first Android phone on Verizon. Not to crazy about the red accents, but I will probably put a phone cover on it anyways.

Red is my favorite color, so the red accents are perfectly fine with me! But I agree, if this phones does have all the same hardware capabilities of the HD2, this will be my first Android phone on VZW as well.

Because it's not a image from Verizon it is from a HTC employee most likely.

So is it not going to have a trackball? Looks like maybe there is an optical mouse on it. I would rather it have neither.

Great. This is so annoying. I absolutely hate waiting for phones to come out. I should have bought the DROID in November. At this point i am just gonna buy the next phone that comes out on Verizon. After that i will never check these websites for updates. All they bring is frustration and disappointment.

Except for the UGLY red accents, that's a damn good looking phone.

The delay sucks but I'd rather get a phone that works later than one that is buggy sooner.

I guess since I've never used capacitive, I'm quite please with my envTouch screen. But hey ... if it's better ... all the better! :-)

It seems as though apple isn't the only one that can make people camp out. Meanwhile, my DROID is kicking a$$ and taking names.

Do you think they will be able to fix the multi touch issue with the nexus one since it is a hardware issue. I would buy it but not with that problem?

None of this story is fact. It is all based on rumors gathered from the Android Forums. There is ZERO info about release date of the incredible. None. It is pure speculation that it is being pushed back (pushed back from a date that no one knows!). And as for the N1, saying that it is delayed to the end of this month is ridiculous. It was never coming out earlier than the end of this month. March 23 is the rumor for it's release date.
