    Why to get the Incredible
    1. Double the screen resolution of moto droid or i-phone
    2. 7 customizable screens with pinch/pull on all screens(main screen, pictures, websites ect)
    3. Verizon Wireless backup assistant
    4. ****!!!!TETHERING!!!!****
    5. snapdragon runs quickkk

    Why not to get the Incredible
    1. YOu wont get it unless you pre-order(stores will have 10 max) haha :p
    2. Video playback is TERRIBLE. I took my moto droid and played same video as the incredible today, and the incredible looked absolutely horrid..
    3. no physical keyboard, touch keyboard is DECENT
    5. doesnt come with memory card so system files arent saved to card.
    6. Too light, this could go on either list, but its SUPER light which means its brittle IMO.

    Launches Thursdays in stores and I wont be working so IDK how well its gonna fair, but every store in my area got 10 that are preorder only. So im sure it wont be that great.

    For Not #5: It does, and supposedly if you didn't get one, you can go to a corporate VZN store with your phone and order form and they're supposed to supply you with a 2GB microSD card.

    Hmm... if that link is true... then why would certain VZ stores not be doing it? Or is that poster simply misinformed?

    i also just watched on youtube about 5 incredible camera tests and about the same motodroid camera tests and the video looks pretty good on both.

    Wow, you are filled with misinformation...

    There's not a huge want from them in the stores
    2. Video playback is TERRIBLE. I took my moto droid and played same video as the incredible today, and the incredible looked absolutely horrid..
    What proof, you don't have one
    3. no physical keyboard, touch keyboard is DECENT
    not everybody wants a physical keyboard so this is not a negative
    and the reviews say the touch keyboard is one of the best
    5. doesnt come with memory card so system files arent saved to card.
    comes with 2gb microsd PLUS 8 gb onstorage

    It's true for the iphone, not for the droid.

    Iphone = 320x480 = 153,600 pixels
    Dinc = 480x800 = 384,000 pixels (pwned)
    Droid = 480x854 = 409,920 pixels (the heavyweight champ)

    Uh the Moto Droid has a higher resoloution. 480x854 vs 480x800. maybe that is why the video playback looked odd.

    No offense, but there was a lot wrong with your list... and a lot left out.

    LOL, you have no idea. Expecially since all those who were waiting for the nexus one to come to verizon are busy preordering their incredible right now. And trust me there are thousands, hundreds of thousands of people who have been waiting for the n1 and have just found out that its a no go and the incredible is their only alternative if they want the processing power and an oled screen.

    And also for the aspect ratio of a typical 4:3 ratio video file the resolution needs to be 640 x 480 which will create black bars on the left and right side of the screen. Stretching the image to fit the screen horizontally will make it look alot worse.

    I don't think there are hundreds of thousands of people who have just found out that it's not coming to Verizon. Most people don't even know about the HTC Droid Incredible besides people who really like looking at tech stuff. Thousands, I would assume so. Still though... you have to consider how many of those people are planning on getting it Thursday in stores. You have to subtract how many people have preordered online and also find out how many people don't even have upgrades available until a little after Thursday.

    I think that the OP has good intentions here. He is just trying to be realistic about the phone from his experience of using it as a Verizon rep. Unfortunately some of the information is wrong or personal preference. I would have really liked the screen to be 480 x 854 like the droid but that's about all.

    The part that scares me is that if this is the information that Verizon is teaching their reps, then a lot of people are going to be getting misinformed about this phone starting from Day 1. This phone has great potential for the progress of Android. I hope Verizon doesn't mess that up with poor training.

    The store by me said they will be getting around 30 Incredibles at launch and I think the lightweight "problem" could be remedied by using a case.

    Maybe he's thinking of the devour. Maybe he's just making stuff up as he goes along. My whole life is that way.

    Those aren't reasons "not" to get it, those are "excuses".

    1. Only certain stores are limited to 10, not all of them
    2. Motodroid has higher resolution than Inc. (400x854 > 400x800)
    3. Don't know touch qwerty before you've tried it for a while. I used to be married to physical until I got an eris. Now, I can type faster on my eris then any physical keyboard.
    4. (Where's #4)
    5. System files are not saved to SD card anyways. Program data of certain apps is sometimes saved on the SD card. Without an SD card, the system should save data to the embedded ssd space which has faster transfer rates than any SD card. Also, there is still a place for SD cards unlike the iphone. So just buy one.
    6. Light doesn't mean brittle, in fact a light phone will take less damage from a drop then a heavy phone per Newton's Law of Gravity. Also, if it's too light that's good because that is another good reason to by a case.

    Excuse-much?

    "2. Video playback is TERRIBLE. I took my moto droid and played same video as the incredible today, and the incredible looked absolutely horrid.."
    Not on the one I played with in store.

    "3. no physical keyboard, touch keyboard is DECENT"
    The one I played with in store had a better virtual keyboard than the virtual on the droid AND the physical on the droid. My wife felt the same way and decided to go with an incredible instead of the droid. The keyboard from my use was better than the iPhones and any phone I've used.
