    I love the Incredible, but I'm afraid that the Evo is taking all of our developers. Do you think that we are going to turn into the Sprint Hero with no ROMs, etc. Just wondering your take on things.

    No...no. We are not starting this. It was just a simple question. Just wondering what people think.

    Not at all... The Evo has already been rooted and was handed out to developers at Google I/O. I'm not sure what you would claim to be "our development" other than the root status of the phone. Both phones are desirable and both have strong communities.

    Verizon Wireless has a large userbase and customer base so I'm not "afraid" of anything.

    don't worry. people won't leave the Inc behind. the Inc will be the more popular phone since it's on Verizon and it getting marketed very well.

    Thanks. Good point on marketing

    Development to me means ROMs.

    Verizon is the largest US wireless carrier. Developers love products with a large user base...

    Do the math.

    just an FYI, the OTA update to fix the SD card issue patches the current root exploit. so the devs will have to look for another new way to get root access.

    I think it has more attention from accessory developers because the phone was announced months before the Incredible and released long after the Incredible.

    The EVO was also given to the best developers around for free at a Google convention which is why it got rooted.

    Verizon is the king of the [American] castle and the Incredible is their flagship phone.

    As far as I'm concerned, the only update we have to worry about is Froyo, and it has already been announced that the Incredible AND the Evo will be getting it.

    You'll be just fine don't worry about it.

    i'm not worried about any of it. i just want stock froyo. if i rooted the only thing i'd do is uninstall cityid. i had a rooted droid, and i really don't think i'll root the Inc.

    Hiya Ruben:

    I can't find the response that HTC sent to me, but it essentially said that they were aware of the call quality issue and were already working on a ROM update. So, to answer your question, I know from that email follow-up that a ROM is in store for us short-order. Why shouldn't I believe it. They told me that.

    Secondly, I can think of no reason why Verizon's flagship phone would be abandoned. The Moto Droid wasn't. It's lack of multi-touch was addressed in their update, nicely.

    Finally, I also believe the memo that was sent out saying that all late model phones will get Froyo. Bon Apetit! ;)

    Fear not, my brother! :) :)

    Thanks Steven, but I'm talking about cooked roms, not new ones from VZW. Froyo was announced, so that doesn't worry me.

    I'm a noob. What do the cooked ROMs enable you to do?
