why are they using lesser technologies for this and the HD2, but putting an AMOLED on the vzw's incredible? physical size hasn't been announced for the incredible, I imagine it will be smaller than 4.3"

They both have advantages and disadvantages.

The preliminary specs are speculative who knows it may have an AMOLED display. And all the rumors I have read say it will have a 4.3 in display just like the Incredible.

i've heard the incredible will have a 3.7" or maybe 4.0" AMOLED screen. I'd rather have the larger TFT, but a 4.3" AMOLED would def. be best.

Who cares what type of screen it is. Just as long as it is big! Lol. :) Now my large fingers will have a large screen to type on! :D

Although it is a TFT, it has great picture quality. Check out the live photos and video in the hands-on report:http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/CTIA-2010-Live-Report-article-a_10362-p_6.html

Maybe it is because they have had issues with the amoled displays on the Nexus One. They may want to play it safe and go with an older more reliable tech.

I was kind of curious about the tft screen too, wasn't too sure what the diff was until I saw this video -http://www.iphonekiller.com/tft-vs-amoled/ - it uses digital cameras but the tech is the same - pretty helpful
