Please don't expect anyone to spoon feed you info. Do the research within this thread yourself. It really isn't too hard to look back a few pages if you are genuinely interested in the phone.

Great news Montana. I'm starting to think now, it might actually live up to its Incredible name

This thread has already taken on a life of its own, for better or for worse. Most of the regs like the way it flows. It allows feedback on topics related and pertaining to the Incredible, all under one thread - without having to jump from thread to thread to get caught up. If the thought of creating the "release date" thread appeals to you, then go for it!

This may be a repost, i just read it on Macrumors. and yes i know apple is suing HTC...i just found this part about the HTC going back to the drawing board interesting.

Fortune reports on a new research note from Oppenhiemer & Co.'s Yair Reiner claiming that Apple in January began high-level talks with major phone manufacturers expressing its displeasure with what it considers to be infringement of its iPhone-related intellectual property. According to the report, Apple's recent lawsuit against HTC has served to back up the company's position in these talks and has sent competitors scrambling to deal with the threat. Reiner writes:Starting in January, Apple launched a series of C-Level discussions with tier-1 handset makers to underscore its growing displeasure at seeing its iPhone-related IP [intellectual property] infringed. The lawsuit filed against HTC thus appears to be Apple's way of putting a public, lawyered-up exclamation point on a series of blunt conversations that have been occurring behind closed doors.

Our checks also suggest that these warning shots are meaningfully disrupting the development roadmaps for would-be iPhone killers. Rival software and hardware teams are going back to the drawing board to look for work-arounds. Lawyers are redoubling efforts to gauge potential defensive and offensive responses. And strategy teams are working to chart OS strategies that are better hedged.
Fortune's report offers more detail on Reiner's description of how events have unfolded, building from Apple's January 2009 promise to aggressively defend its iPhone intellectual property to the company's decision to press its position as other multi-touch handsets have begun to come to market.

Reiner also notes that much of the conflict has occurred with companies utilizing Google's Android operating system, which is seen as Apple's true target. In response, Microsoft has reportedly begun seizing the opportunity by pushing forward with promotion of its Windows Phone operating system and patent portfolio, indicating that it is willing to stand closely with its partner handset manufacturers in any intellectual property dispute.

Yessir, it has been posted. Conclusion: Apple is the bully on the school yard. Android is the new kid on the block that will change that.

As a regular(i think i count as one?), I wholeheartedly agree. I prefer this format versus having to go through several threads.

We've established that they're reps know little, to nothing, about this phone (whether its e-mail, phone call, or in-store). If youre going to try to squeeze any info out, it needs to be someone high in the VZW ranks, otherwise its pointless.

Good call! has anyone used one of those projectors in phone or camera? how fast do they run the battery down, how clear/bright/resolution? (ignore the horrible grammer). Do they get hot? I could see them accidentally burning a hole in the pocket, like a bad battery, lol.

I just started listing a bunch of ultimate features I would love to see, then realized some were way too cool to just give away on a message board. (Norril heads to pattent office...)

I'm in favor of keeping things simple, lets keep this thread until the phone is released. At that time a million more threads will pop up overnight

That, or they are truly going to try and introduce it as the famed and often rumored "iPhone Killer"!!!!! We haven't heard that phrase in a while.

Maybe that's why Apple is trying to sue them? IDK, just a theory.

So I just spoke to a manager at a verizon store. When I asked about new android phones he said there are 3 new LG androids coming out this year. He knew htc was doing something, but didn't know what and seemed to not be sure they were switching from qualcomm to snapdragon. He THOUGHT there would be at least some in store help/availability of the N1. He didn't know about the Eris being EOL and said the only reason the BOGO for the droids was still running was because Blackberry won't stop theirs. The most interesting news(for me at least) was about LTE. He said they have been testing in Boston and Seattle and are reaching speeds up to 40mb/s! He also mentioned that internet service providers are now fighting the upgrade because it's so fast.

Edit: 40mb/s not gigs

I believe you were both were a bit misinformed.. (him more than you, considering something like an EOL should probably be relayed to a manager)

I am not sure that is entirely accurate....but lets not get into an apple vs pc thing here...this is about The Incredible.

He didn't know about the Eris being EOL and said the only reason the BOGO for the droids was still running was because Blackberry won't stop theirs. The most interesting news(for me at least) was about LTE. He said they have been testing in Boston and Seattle and are reaching speeds up to 40gb/s! He also mentioned that internet service providers are now fighting the upgrade because it's so fast.
40gb/s ? did you mean maybe 40mb/s

I think much of this will depend on Google's willingness to financially support their hardware vendors, like HTC, in the legal arena. If they don't have the stomach or financial wherewithall for long, drawn-out legal battles then Android my go the way of the Dodo Bird.

This really has nothing to do with HTC, but is Apple's way of firing a shot across the bow of Google's boat. If they're successful in their suit against HTC it could literally stop other handset mfg's dead in their tracks from even messing around with Android, thus rendering the O.S. obsolete.

Agreed, ususally a tips and tricks type of release thread will make it's way into the Incredible forum and people can hopfully focus their attention on that after the release.

THis thread wil still be around though. I don't believe you guys will let it die...

WRONG! It's about Google (Android) vs. Apple, as I just pointed out in another post, which may directly and indirectly affect the Incredible.

As for the future, Verizon Wireless recently issued some stats from its trials of its forthcoming 4G network. If the numbers are to be believed, they are substantially faster than any existing 3G network, with peak download speeds of 40-50 Mbps (megabits per second) and peak upload speeds of 20-25 Mbps.

gb/s and Mbps a second is a HUGE difference but still 40-50 Mbps is blazing fast, time for them to up my FiOS connect which is only 25Mbps right now.

I would think at 40Mbps, you are not limited by network speed, but only by the phone's processing/rendering ability and speed.

It's actually 40Mbps equals about 3.75-4MB per second.

Ok so I went into my local VZW store today and asked about any new Android phones. She said there was a Motorola and HTC phone coming out this month! Awesome, right?



But then she informed me that the HTC phone coming out was the Nexus One. She was confident that it was coming out this month and would be sold in stores. Unfortunately, when I asked about the Incredible, she had no clue what I was talking about.

But as we all know, this is all probably completely useless.

Yeah I agree it's really fast, I have Verizon Fios and my package is 25Mbps/5Mbps the fact that we'll have speeds even faster than that on a phone is insane and I can't wait
