I'm just posting this for those who crave renderings. There is nothing special about the info. we still need to know the price.
The Best Pictures Yet of the HTC Incredible Come to Light
The Best Pictures Yet of the HTC Incredible Come to Light Article Contents
  1. The Best Pictures Yet of the HTC Incredible Come to Light
  1. Image Gallery
There are many Verizon customers who are eagerly waiting for Verizon's launch of the HTC Incredible. The high-end Android OS model has yet to be officially announced but many details are already available, including some new images.
They show the Incredible from every side, and apparently are from HTC because they do not include Verizon branding.
The images are renderings rather than photos, but offer the most detailed look so far of the upcoming smartphone's exterior. They appear to match earlier pictures of the smartphone that also came from unofficial sources.
A Preliminary Overview of the HTC Incredible
According to HTC and Verizon, the Incredible is going to run Android OS 2.1 on a 1 GHz processor, but it may be downclocked to 768 MHz.
The model is going to apparently include HTC Sense, the company's alternate user interface that enhances Google's standard UI.
It is almost certainly a version of the HTC Bravo; other versions of the device include the Google Nexus One and the HTC Legend. If so, the smartphone is going to use a tablet shape with a 3.7-inch WVGA (800 x 480 pixel) AMOLED touchscreen. Below it is going to be an optical touchpad.
The Incredible is expected to support Verizon's 3G mobile broadband network, and include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a GPS receiver.
Other features supposedly include 6 GB of internal storage, a microSD memory card slot and 512 MB of RAM. In addition, it's going to have an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flashes, and FM Tuner and a 1300 mAh battery.
Coming in Late April
According to an internal document from Best Buy, the HTC Incredible is going to launch April 29. The chain is apparently going to carry the Incredible in stores.
So far, no source has revealed a potential price for the smartphone.

Only date's I've seen is in reference to Best Buy. So anything else would be pure speculation on my part.

Yes, you can do that.

Loading apps on the card and running them are two different things. Any Android phone lets you load them on the card, you use an app installer, and install them to the phone. I'm sure that's what it means.

I've learned not to care what the reviews say about a phone these days. So many reviewers claim to be impartial, but 90% of the time they are closet Apple Fan Boys and will always find something to dig at on a device that doesn't live up to the smug Apple regime. Don't get me wrong, watching review videos is a nice way to become familiar with your device, but they opinions coming out of their mouths is usually tainted by apples dipped in peanut butter (if you get my meaning).

I was a rep for 4 years. Yes, you should be able to do this. You are buying a new device and VZW is getting a new contract, that makes them very happy. If you own your devices (which of course you will), you have the right to place them on whatever line you would like. Net Ace (the system used for POS and plan changes) will not physically permit a data package on a dumb phone, so no worries.

Putting it a bit easier to understand, what you will be doing (and can ask the rep for) is an "alternate upgrade." That means you are upgrading on the dumb phone's mtn (mobile telephone #) but placing the new device onto you other line. Reps do countless alternate upgrades every week.

If for some reason you get some grief (which I doubt) ask to speak to a manager and show them my post. However, I do not think that will be necessary.

I'd take that with a grain of salt. They may be referencing how some apps store info on the microSD card.

Until Google releases an upgrade to Android I don't think you'll see instaling apps native on the removable storage.

I am with you on this one. I just don't see how they would not allow you to store pictures on the internal 8GB memory. What is it there for then? Will apps be stored on it and that folder locked down to protect from piracy?

In my four year in wireless I never saw a phone release on a Sunday in a corporate store. The 25th is a Sunday.

If indeed the device launches earlier in corp stores than at agents like BB, I would place my money on Thursday the 22nd. VZW likes to release & launch on Thursdays.

Of course, the 29th is a Thursday, so the device may launch the same day at corporate as BB. Still an open question I believe, maybe today will bring us new info.

This source lists the Legend as a form of the Bravo. The Desire is "a form of the bravo" if you want to think of it like that, but not the legend. Sounds like someone is just regurgitating news.

It's nice and thin. I would say you won't notice too much difference.

Someone here did a visual comparison based off the size specs.

The rendering shows a miniusb connection for the charger. I believe it was stated by NKT micro usb. In the specs of the UG it states Micro.

That's just the resolution for the digital camera. The little 2" screens on 15MP DSLR's don't display the full resolution image, but a sized image. If you take a full resolution picture with the 8MP camera on the Incredible, you'll be able to pinch to zoom in to get the detail that isn't shown when it's sized down.

I hear ya.

I like to use 'em for the details I get like, it does this when I push this button and the screen jumps quick to this when I tap this part of the screen...practical things that I cant do myself without having one in hand.
Seeing it actually get used.

Of course, the 29th is a Thursday, so the device may launch the same day at corporate as BB. Still an open question I believe, maybe today will bring us new info.
I think at this point people would just like some kind of official notice from big red that its coming. But I see where they are coming from. If they tell people now about the Incredible, the in store reps can't dupe people into buying an Eris or Moto Droid; and get em' for an additional $35 when they return it.

So, first post, long time lurker. I didn't join to talk about some silly phone , no I actually joined because I saw that it is MM's birthday today. So Happy Birthday Montana Man, thanks for all that you do in the entertainment business (well ours anyway) .

Ok, enough with the OT, it's hard not to want such a beast of a great phone. Very anxiously waiting for the darned thing to appear. This phone has been harder to catch than a taxi in Amboy, CA

Let's get a good look at the darn thing, I mean what the heck, the cat is so far out of the bag. Pics, vids, whatever.

Depends on which one is in question...some were done by members here, but a few of the ones i posted (like the red with the android sticker or whatever) weren't user renders per se, but rather protoype/test unit renders.

That is for camera resolution, not screen resolution...

I don't know. It may be possible to install apps to it since it's not removable. Haven't had the chance to confirm this though so it's pure speculation.

I would completely disregard that source...regurgitation of old news, talks about downclocking, etc...trust me, if you need news, this is the place to come for it.

The HTC pics show one change to what we've seen previously:

Pretty cool, looks like there are a few of us! I love me some PH Stuffed Crust pizza! I've actually never eaten at the LC store, I'm a little further up 23 so, factoring in traffic, it's faster to go to the one in Delaware. I graduated with the girl who manages the Sunbury store; are you familiar with that one at all?

So are we onto something here, because this would be the only phone able to do that correct?

So far I haven't seen anything official that would lead me to think it has an 8gb memory independent of a sd card. Just ROM/RAM plus sd.
Also, having it actually on board could explain why the microsd slot was moved to the side and all the others are where the battery is.

I would expect to be able to store applications on the 8GB internal storage. I have some sources (still vetting this which is why i haven't made some big deal announcement) that claim this to be one of the bigger deals of this phone...Incredible's "game changer" if you will. Again, not yet confirmed enough for me to feel comfortable putting it on the spec page or making a big announcement, but i'm working on it.

Please stop cluttering the thread, it's already hard enough to read through this info and than having to scroll up after you take 2 minutes to respond to a post because 17 other posts have come through.
