It's not that VZW wouldn't allow it. It's that HTC probably held back so they could release a new feature that would be a decent big deal and steal some spotlight away during the Droid X launch.

That, or the drivers and coding just weren't ready yet for the Inc at launch, so they decided to wait.

There's a lot these phones are capable of, but has not yet been implemented.

Since nobody seems to truly know what is upcoming with this phantom update, which seems odd to me that they are supposedly releasing it the same day as the DX, I'll wait to see what happens when the update arrives. If it arrives.

Que? The update is probably on Friday (at best, since we really don't know). In 27 hours it will only be Thursday.

@JayHammy, I totally understand where you are coming from. I used to work for the company that managed and created the ringtones on VZWTones, so I do have SOME credibility. I want an update just as much as everyone else!

Money Hungry A-holes?!?!

Are you serious? The whole reason you even have a phone, and pretty much anything else, is because some entrepreneur at some point took a risk and developed a product. With his own money.

If you dont want to buy it, then dont. If you can come up with a better device, then do so. Then you can give it away free for everyone in your Utopian society.

Sheesh. What is wrong with people? The reason this country used to be the greatest nation in the history of the planet is because of competition driven capitalism.

Hopefully we can overcome the propaganda get back to that.

There is nothing wrong with making money for your idea/inventions but too many companies are PRICE GOUGING and charging more than they really should for what they provide. SMS comes to mind.

Market determines price, period. Assuming no outside (read- government) influences.

If the price is too high, the market wont bear it, and it fails. Simple. And brilliant.

Eh, the "invisible hand" is a cute notion, but not quite so brilliant in practice in an era of megacorporations and near-monopolies.

Still, VZW does what they can get away with to make as much money as they can, so... good for them, I guess.
