    Well that's what Verizon has renamed your beloved HTC Incredible to: the "Droid Incredible by HTC"
    "The next chapter in the Droid saga begins April 29th."
    Whatcha think?

    Yes, this is Verizon official and updated from just earlier (as seen in the Phandroid article). See it for yourself at the official Verizon staging site here.

    As the late great Walter Cronkite would say, "And that's the way it is."

    Looks like they are sticking with the DROID name and it makes sense of course. As people have said about "all the marketing" etc now it's not going to be a matter of competing with DROID cause it is a DROID now. I WANT IT!!

    I'm actually considering playing hooky on the 29th because of this phone

    I like that they are putting Droid in the title, its showing off android and building on the advertisement of the Droid.

    Is that a USB connector on the side? Hope it's not proprietary.

    I thought I would not like seeing Droid tagged on but thinking about the momentum of the Droid campaign its a good idea. The Droid billboards are making a big comeback now at least in Houston with the Droid does apps campaign. So now the Incredible will ride right in on the momentum.

    i really wish they hadn't used the "Droid " name either, but I get why they did. It's a great marketing tool, the name "droid" everyone already uses like "blackberry"--it's not a specific device, but rather a type of phone.

    I just find it amusing that they have to pay George Lucas for the use of the word "Droid" that he owns the trademark for.
