    What features do you think will be available and how will they effect the DINC? Will Gingerbread be the last update to the DINC and does the coming of better smart phones with 2Ghz processors mark an end to this generation of android phones?

    Nobody knows. There will be MANY phones running on 2.2 still.

    The only people that will get Gingerbread right away is the Nexus One and any new phones coming out in 2011.

    However, the Nexus One is a sad story considering they joined T-Mobile, the worst network in the nation (2 state experience).

    Be happy with what you have or shell out the skrill in 2011.

    Gingerbread features a strong, spicy flavor coming from the eponymous use of ginger.

    The often feature icing, and a shaped anthropomorphically or in the form of miniature structures that are assembled using icing mortar. They also come in most other traditional cookie shapes. They also usually feature molasses and/or honey, as opposed to sugar.

    All forms a gingerbread will have an adverse effect on the DrInc. The frosting can clog the speaker, microphone and jacks. The harder German variety risks abrasing the screen.

    I am hoping for a more uniform GUI update with 3.0 (gingerbread). While the existing GUI works, I think bringing all the main apps ... browser, maps, nav, music, gallery, video player, docs, youtube etc into one uniform asthetic would greatly benefit the android OS. You could still allow user apps to do what ever they want, but the main Google components at least should be more uniform. Just my 2 cents =)

    I would also like to see 3.0 (if it doesn't make it in Froyo) bring home server streaming. For example, I have all my music, pictures and videos on a home server. It would be nice if Android could ping my home server, wake it up, then start streaming media from it. They spoke about this in their Froyo announcement, but it seems like the feature may not make it in the 2.2 build =(

    While I am hoping that Incredible will get the 3.0 update, I would not be surprised if it does not. I would really love to see it though. With the two updates I listed above, I would not need anything else in a phone for many years to come.

    Gingerbread is going to come with many advanced features. One of them is helping locate a girlfriend for me. It's a promise from Google.

    It's a little unfair to call T-Mobile the worst network in the nation without explaining what you mean. T-Mobile does not have the most widespread coverage, that is true, but coverage is not the only thing that matters. They do have the best deal on service by far. Unlimited minutes, unlimited text, unlimited data, and unlimited tethering for $79.99 and no contract. You couldn't get that level of service from Verizon even if you paid $150 a month.

    You get service in less places than Verizon with T-Mobile, but you get a ton of value for what you pay and if you live and work in an area with good coverage, they are a fantastic choice.

    They do have the cheapest prices, I'll give you that. But like I always say... you get what you pay for.

    I don't know about the entire country, but where I like their service sucks. I know quite a few people that got them because they were the cheapest and they all switched within 6 months. They just couldn't take the lack of signal and dropped calls. Or the lack of ability to use the phone anywhere indoors (be it there house, their work, a store, etc).

    I almost died laughing when I went with my friend to the T-Mobile store to cancel her phone. She explained why, the lack of coverage. They tried to argue that their service was great and she must be doing something wrong. She pulled out the phone and goes "Oh really?? I can't even get signal IN A T-MOBILE STORE!!" They let her cancel and we went over to the Verizon store for her new phone. She's been a happy customer there for over 4 years now.


    It's really sad because their service rocks in Europe! When I was in Germany last summer I had a cheap pre-paid phone with them and it worked great for the entire 2 months I was there. They just can't seem to get it together over here in the US.

    Edited to add - We are "fully covered" according to their coverage map. We live in Northern VA, 30 minutes outside of Washington, DC. It's not like we are in the boonies or something.

    Well, to be fair, they have the best customer service and good prices. But that's not what I was referring to.

    I'm talking about their service - which I found to be horrific in both Colorado and Wisconsin (both by large cities).

    Many dropped calls and many areas where you get no service. In all of the same places they didn't have service, Verizon had it.

    Their signal seemed to be much weaker in basements and buildings where Verizon seems to be able to penetrate better..

    T-Mobile is fine if you live in a large city and don't ever leave - need to penny pinch. You'll get decent service there.

    No, based on this I'd say they're right about T-Mobile...
