As I understand it, the device transfers phone data such as contacts and photos. To do that, all you need is the file location and database format for the transferred items. Presumably these are standardized across all Android 2.1 phones (if not all Android versions). So if Cellebrite can transfer Droid information, for example, then presumably it can also transfer for the Google N1, Incredible, Desire, Hero, Shadow, etc. etc. Basically, you could list any Android phone (whether it exists or not).

So as I see it, the Cellebrite listing tells us that the Incredible exists (which we already knew), that Verizon intends to sell the Incredible (which we already knew), and that the Incredible runs Android (which we already knew).
All valid points. However, I believe it puts us an important step closer to a release and seems to be yet another indicator that an April release is a very strong possibility. At this point, we'd all love something more definitive, but we'll take what we can get.
