Verizon Wireless CEO McAdam says Droid Incredible sales hurt by component shortages

Verizon is also hard at work building out its 4G LTE network. By the end of the year, the carrier is expected to have 25-30 markets ready for the next generation network, covering 100 million people including New York. McAdam feels that Verizon has an 18 to 24 month head start on other LTE providers-like AT&T. Also in the pipelines for Big Red are Android powered tablets that will be available in the second half of the year and are
designed to compete with Apple's iPad. Originally to be sold for use on Verizon's CDMA network, buyers will be able to upgrade them to LTE where the speeds are fast enough to download a feature film in under a minute. McAdam said he will demonstrate the first LTE tablets and phones at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. By the end of 2013, the carrier hopes to have LTE coverage for its entire network.

HTC is garbage equipment that falls apart after a few months. I want to see what happens when there is a string of plastic phones snapped in half and all the moto Droid owners are sitting there laughing. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

yea.. it must be hard to be HTC huh? LOL They have The HD2 and Incredible already sold out the second they get stock, and they are bout to load the "out-of-stock" bases when the Evo comes out. Add to that the nexus 1 is about to be in store, the mytouch slide is an exellent phone, and all the other phones they already sell... its gonna be a fantastic year for them. Grand Slammin

htc was juggling too much at once with the nexus, the incredible and the evo 4g... verizon pushed the incredible launch when it did so that the new iphone news would be forgotten about...but then this happened and well....kind of a fail

HTC should've known it was going to be a hot seller. They released it before they had enough.

fail verizon flag ship phone and don't have stock are you kidding. sprint's going to have the same problem with evo case in point hd2 t-mobile. last but not least verizon you pull this with the google tablet and half a** its release you will miss out on what could have been to, damn look at the money we could have made. i as a cutomer of several electronics I am getting very tired of this game of leak a phone make us wait for 6-12 months just to go and buy it to be told sorry we're out of stock. HTC why wait on samsung your compeditor to make displays htc should be large enough to make their own displays.

Because it is out of stock on purpose. Nobody wants something that is easily available. When something is out of stock people want it more. I'm sure HTC is surely "failing" at making tons of money... I for one have not been able to keep any shipment of HD2s in stock at our store for longer than 15 minutes when it comes in.
