looking forward to the new download management feature. Adding useful features for any phone capable of 2.3 is always a plus.

No reason to think otherwise here.

I kind of agree with you. And I would love the phone but here is what I'm worried about.

-Incredible is the perfect size, 4.3" phones seem enormous to me
-4G, I have an unlimited data plan and have heard that I will need to go to tiered in order to get 4G. Plus with a family plan coming up with my girlfriend I will need to pay for 3G & 4G data plans (not quite sure how this is going to work or whether they will just be umbrella'd as "data")
-Dual Core? Heard the HD doesn't have it - deeming it almost immediately obsolete w/in months of it coming out

If Verizon lumps 3G and 4G together and I keep my unlimited data plan, they bump it down to 4" screen and put in a dual core chip along with NFC...I'm sold.

I'd hope that we would eventually... the phone's not even a year old, and it's a flagship model.

If the iPhone 3g still got iOS 4.0 being like 2 years old, we better get 2.3.

That is a terrible analogy...Apple makes both the OS and the Hardware. And they intentionally make the OS backwards compatible with the last version of the hardware. And they only have 2 major devices to support, the current iPhone and the last iPhone (not counting the iPad and iPod Touch, which are basically the same components as the iPhone).

HTC doesn't write android and has several phones it's supporting.

That said, I'm very confident we'll get 2.3, not sure how long it will take, but we'll get it.

This was a big deal when the Droid Incredible for Verizon launched earlier this year and many applications refused to acknowledge the internal storage. Now, you’ll be able to check if there is external and internal storage and have your application act accordingly.

Users: You’ll soon be able to buy devices with large amounts of internal storage knowing that most applications – should the developers be mindful enough to update them – will be able to treat your internal storage just as they do a microSD card without having to pressure them for an update. Added convenience is always a plus."

So, does this mean that Gingerbread will allow us to use ALL of the 8GB onboard memory for apps?

Am I the only one that thinks losing external storage capabilities is going in the wrong direction? I don't like the idea that the manufacturers will be able to offer a crappy version with no memory (eg 2gb) and jack the price for anything decent 16gb+. I want to load videos onto the device and that's very hard to do when you are limited to what is built in.

This would allow manufacturers to build phones with larger internal storage, say 32GB, and give developers the option to have their apps save data there, that way customers won't need to buy larger SD Cards as bad. It is an added option, much like the app2sd.

i like that option, also since it is internal it would not be using flash memory if i am correct meaning faster load times than even the highest class of sd card? correct me if i am wrong.

Didn't you guys learn your lesson about the froyo update? Overrated and overhyped.

These updates are like waiting for christmas only to realize you got some chocolates, a pair of socks, and a wool knitted hat that doesn't fit from your grandma.

It could come with an updated HTC sense. Also, I just look forward to see what goodies the ROM cookers come up with. The more they have to work with the more progress.

PS I tried the SDK build and man is it slow. But that is to be expected.

Default Gingerbread coming to the Dinc?

There's no list of phones that will be receiving Gingerbread (at least that I have seen), so does anyone know whether or not we will be getting the update sooner as opposed to later, if at all?

I know the Dinc was one of the first phone phones to get froyo when it was pushed out, so I'm hoping the same will be true for Gingerbread.

Yeah, but we're talking about an official HTC/Verizon release with Gingerbread Sense.

I'd be happy with just getting Sense 2.5 sooner rather than later. I'm using Launcher Pro which gives me landscape homescreens, but it's still irritating to have to use the dialer/phone function and have to unlock my phone sideways when it's in my dash mount horizontally.

Gingerbread doesn't melt in direct sunlight like Froyo does.

I think what everyone really wants is a phone/tablet combo in the 5" screen range. Who wants to carry around two devices to do the work of one. I think about the size of a brick (no pun intended). I am really looking forward to what comes out in first quarter 2011 with 4G capabilities. Love my DINC, but a bigger screen and keyboard would be a plus for my giant thumbs. Let's hope HTC surprises us all with something great.
