Cool

Phone is out for AT&T already and I don't see it for sprint. https://www.google.com/phone/choose?hl=en&gl=US&s7e=

The lawsuit is strictly with phones from HTC that have the android OS and Sense UI. That's my understanding anyway.

However, Verizon has put more than $100 million into an advertising campaign for the Droid, and is now expanding that ongoing campaign with new updated spots. I can't imagine Verizon throwing more money at a device that many here already consider "obsolete," but rather invest it for a series of devices known as "Droids" regardless of manufacturer.
good digging, I didn't go that far to look for who trademarked the term.

With the Iphone deal, and the speculation on that, being it wouldn't be coming till late this year if not next... the "Droid Does" campaign could go for quite awhile (until a firm release from vzw). Hence why the continued Moto commercials even when a higher end device is soon to launch.

I believe the lawsuit is for all HTC phones is has to do with hardware not software. It's their only way to attack Google since Google doesn't actually manufacture the phone.

The only phone coming this month that was valued at almost $600 was to be delivered on April 25. I can't think of any other phone it could be.

Granted, who knows if BB even gets the phone on the drop date, but even a few weeks ago I had heard April 25 and the comment here

Verizon HTC Incredible is a Nexus One in Red? Phone Reviews

says it as well. I know it's all speculation but seeing the delivery date on their computer and hearing April 25 a few other places is the most concrete thing I've seen in weeks.
I'm jumping on the April 25 bandwagon. Seeing it posted from two apparently independent sources is good enough for me.

True, and HTC announced the EVO which would be running Sense UI.

Which would lead to believe it's VZW and not HTC or Google that is holding things up.

I thought it was software. Well then Apple is screwed because HTC has been making touch screen devices way before Apple.

The only reason I can think of for Verizon dragging their feet on the N1 is that Google made a deal with them to delay it. I could see Verizon saying that since they can't sell the N1 in stores they have wait until the Incredible drops before they can release it.

If the surprise is indeed something Google/HTC could get into hot water with Apple for, then I think I will like it, whatever it may be.

Apple really gets twitchy if someone tries to make a better product. Last I checked, broad ideas were not to be patented/trademarked. Anyone remember Apple going after Microsoft because Windows 95 had a start button and task tray?

It's all just history repeating.

Perhaps the "surprise" is vzw can service the N1 but can't sell in store and has to wait for INC to drop and the N1 gets updates first. And the big hold up for all is correcting the touch screen issues - causing further testing/delays...

Dammit! I just want my Incredible already!!!!

HTC may have a good chance because I believe they released a device using some of the patents in question months before the Iphone released. Apple is just scared that is why they listed 20 patents. Apple also is suing Nokia who has been around way longer and has way more patents of their own to kick Apple's butt with. HTC is relatively new in the mobile world.

Laugh

Apple is just a pathetic company - i can go on in a huge rant about Apple.

Ipad - yay a huge mp3 player ... ??? not very innovative. edit: I got an idea lets take the ipod touch and make it bigger and sell it for 800 bucks! - ya great idea! - so innovative - it's like a new product! ... >.<

Anyway ... I heard the HTC desire was out and I was reading more info about that phone. I got excited but to only find out it's a GSM phone and probably not porting to Verizon.

Really hoping the Incredible does exist, will be released soon, and my fears are totally wrong.

Me: @VZWOffers PLEASE tell me how long I will have to wait for the HTC Incredible. Im begging.....on my knees.....literally....

VZW: @natr89 Begging on your knees huh Nate :-) Don't, because good things are coming your way, we promise.

Like I said, still no time....no date....no how long, but its hope. We do know this much from his post. They are not denying anything, therefore:

1. The phone is real
2. The phone is coming to verizon
3. The phone is coming VERY soon
4. They are absolutely unwilling to give a release date at this point

The date is really the only thing we have yet to get out of them. Lets keep hounding boys, maybe someone somewhere will break.

Woah. Talk about some real sexual connotations to that tweet coming from VZWoffers. Wow. LOL Then again, perhaps I'm just a perv.

lol you all do know that Microsoft stole from Apple right??

Bill Gates, stole apples Graphical User Interface and passed it off as their own in Windows.

Not saying im an apple fanboy, i use Windows 7 but thats what happened and thats why we see Microsoft where it is today.

They are both just looking for money in the end........they reap us of our money and don't care.

Steve jobs is a smart man though, i will give him that, marketing genius.

Anyways, im about ready to jump on the DROID bandwagon........

You also know that Microsoft and Saint Bill saved Apple's ass back in the day too, right??? You should read up on some computer history and find out all about how Mr. Gates bailed out Apple in the name of "healthy competition".

I consider nothing happened today. It was April Fools... NKT had it right... he stayed away. As we all should have.

Imagine it, come back tomorrow, not knowing about any of the fake crap or being closed down...
woulda been nice.

Hey dude I'm no Microsoft fanboy but you gotta tell the whole story here .... because Jobs and Gates were/are both some thieves. Apple stole the GUI from Xerox (later they payed Xerox 100 mill for it) and Microsoft stole it from Apple. So the only innocent party involved is Xerox. BTW, this is a great movie Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999) (TV)

Yea, and im pretty sure that was after they stole apple's GUI interface from the codenamed LISA computer.

Steve Jobs was fired lol, he had family issues and crap.....apple went down the drain after that. Yes, then Microsoft bailed them out and own 25% of apple to this day. There was a keynoted when Steve Jobs was re-hired and they had a video chat during that keynote if im not mistaken?

look i don't want to dwell anymore into this thing, it's really off topic now.

Im not a fanboy, just saying that's what happened. Yea i know Microsoft bailed them out etc...but that was all after what happened.

Thank you for bringing it up before I did lol...It actually goes deeper than Xerox though, who also stole components from another company, its been so long I can't remember who and what it was, but I distinctly remember components that Xerox acquired with "less than honorable" methods...

Steve Jobs isn't a saint by any means, anyone wonder how he flew past all the other on the transplant list, especially given his past medical history.

Alright, im bored about talking about steve jobs, and apple and microsoft.

Im really doubting myself if i want to get this phone still.........the waiting is killing me as usual and i don't know how much longer i can hold out.

Default Incredible on Verizon's site!!!!

Okay, not really but this is my take on what I think it will look like when it's released. I contemplated an April Fools joke but I really hate it when others do it and also I'm so slow at doing these it's not even April 1st anymore. So anyway, drool and pretend it's real. Hopefully soon!

look i don't want to dwell anymore into this thing, it's really off topic now.

Im not a fanboy, just saying that's what happened. Yea i know Microsoft bailed them out etc...but that was all after what happened.
Just as an aside. The bailout was also more to show support. Apple had plenty of cash on hand, so the amount Microsoft kicked in definitely didn't save the company. Knowing Office and other Microsoft software would be on Apple computers was the idea there.

Where in the world is HTC Incredible?
Dooo Booop.
Boop Boop Whaaa.
Dooo Boop.

Is it delayed 'cause of Verizon
or is it HTC?

Is it sitting in the warehouse?
or at the factory?

If I don't know anything
I know this one thing

I'm going to lose it soon
if they don't give it to me

Oh Where in the world is HTC Incredible?

Definitely not.. Searching "htc incredible" only brings up that link with the pic that i posted a while back.. Which brings me to wonder where NKT found the pic he posted because he said something about being in the spec page.. Or something.. And then that inventory screenshot.. Care to share bro??

The math is off by $20, otherwise it looks pretty real.

It is very annoying to have to read thru 6 pages of people getting Tatooed for being on probation, or people being in the shower, or wanting to sleep with the phone.....get over yourselves. I would hope that most of us are adults and I personally have no desire to read thru your imbicile chats.

It woudl be great if we could get back on topic and talk about the Incredible and new news surrounding the phone. In reality 35% of the posts on this forum are about the phone, the other 65% is people chatting. If you have information post it...if you want to have "fun" with your friends IM them so we all do not have to read thru the menutia...
Ok, obviously, there are folks that like the friendly chat and others that like information. Is it possible to separate them into two different threads? I can tell you that I was originally a devotee of this thread, but after it got to 10 pages a day I just had to drop it and only read posts with 10+ thumbs up. So it is an absolute chore to be here now.

I think someone (I am not volunteering) needs to crack open a new thread and make it devoted to real news and not chat. DO NOT close this thread, because there are so many folks here that have earned the right to continue sharing their personal lives with their forum friends. It would be sad to kill that. But, there are a ton of people that are just looking for info and don't feel like reading through 10 pages just to find one nugget.

FYI, had an HD in my hands today and about wet my pants. It is sick! whoever says it is big must have mini hands. It fits so nice in my hand. Slim and beautiful. Lets hope that Verizon delayed the Inc launch, to rebuild on the 4.3 platform.

I was one of the idiots that got up at about 4am to wait for my Moto Droid on release day. I paid full price for it because I didn't want to alter my Alltel plan I've got. Its going to be the same thing for the HTC Incredible, it isn't that I don't love my Moto Droid, far from it, I love it. I just want the latest and greatest device and I'm willing to pay full price for it.

The Incredible will be worth it so long as we get the specs we've been talking about. Android is the OS platform of the future and I plan to be there with it, and developing for it as I have time. I'm so inpatient, I want it now, but I guess I'll have to wait it out here with everyone else until we get it.

There was a huge issue today over this. It came from someone on these forums, but in the end it was a fake, if you read the first part, it even states in the link that the screen shot is a fake.

We're all sad panda about it

It's fake. If you look closely there's a few misspelled words. The guy who made it posted it here as well but was proven to be a fake.

With the way Verizon works, I'm sure he was hung and shot for treason.

Honestly, if we didn't have off-topic banter, this thread would be so dead and we would all be bored. Any real solid news for the past couple of weeks would be maybe 15 posts. I enjoy coming in here and reading this stuff. Do I read every post? No. However, do I want to control certain people and take away their freedom to post whatever they like as long as they're not hurting anyone? No.

Again... Until real news is released, we have no choice but to just chat back and forth and keep this thread alive. If no one posted anything for a week in here, everyone would lose interest and we would all stop coming here. The constant conversation in this thread is what keeps it alive and what keeps the draw powerful for getting new members in here who have reliable contacts and relevant news for us. If the heart stops beating, the body dies. It's as simple as that. We need this constant stream of conversation in here, even if a majority of it is nothing that contains any new solid information.

I respect everyone's opinion, but honestly, I would say 95% of the people who come to this thread LOVE IT. Majority rules. I hate to sound like a broken record, but honestly if you don't like the way this thread is ran, just go to the first post and check back regularly to see if there are any more solid leads. If the back and forth conversation bothers you, I would suggest not reading it. Why would you subject yourself to something that upsets you that you obviously can't change?
Let me just say that according to the thanks that are posted under the "keep thread as it is" vs "lets trim out the chit chat", the thinks for "as is" is probabaly 50% higher in votes. Go back and read to confirm if you want. But even if that is the case, what is the purpose here? Is this "Official Incredible" thread meant to be a chat room or a place for people to go for information? I think this forum is broken. I think the people here are fantastic and hugely appreciate all of you, but this is just broken. Literally, there has not been one piece of real news in about a week. Yes, I have had to read through 70 pages to learn that?

Can we just have a thread of news and a page of chat? Surely the admins can see the logic there?

Now for all those that think "screw it, majority rules". lets just think about racial prejeduce for a moment. Does majority rule justify prejeduce? (bad with spelling, so forgive me). When this forum was created, was it created as a chat room or a place to learn and share knowledge? If all the threads continue like this one, This forum will not survive.

When I do web searches, I pick links from reputable web sites. Motley Fool used to be good info, but it changed and is just a bunch of garbage, with only an occaisional nugged of truth. That is what this has turned into. Why aren't moderators scrubbing this? Why haven't they taken the real content and moved it to a separate thread and titled this the "idle chat thread for bored people".

I guess I am getting overly frustrated. Sure, I can just leave. But there aren't any other threads here that post the real news, so I am forced to read through all the chat, just to fine that one interesting bit of news each week.

venting... venting... etc...

I am going to ask teh admins to reconsider where this thread is going. enough is enough. Flame me, crucify whatever. I really don't care. I just want to be able to go to a place that is serious about getting answers.

Take a lesson from the Evo Thread. Takes me 5 min to unravel. Billsmed and Twospirits do a fabulous job of keeping more on track.

Finally, even I have posted useless blather here. for that I apologize. Most of the times I have, it has been out of annoyance that there is nothing to read about the Incredible.

Sorry for this being long. I just feel like those that are expressing this concern are getting burried by other "more popular" posters and kicked to the curb.

I am personally done here and this is my parting post. I am now going to dedicate my time to the Evo, since it is a much better phone and much better managed forum thread.

Again, I think the people here are rock stars, but I want rock music, not a bunch of out of work musicians chatting about what could have been.

I hope you figure it out. Sorry if I upset anyone.

Take care
