    So i was wondering with the incredible not having a physical keyboard how will games and apps that use it hold up? Like Snesoid or something along those lines.... I mean... how will games and apps that need key's hold up? only virtual? I'm pretty much set on the incredible other than this.

    I would assume its virtual. Probally could use track pad for d pad.

    You should get the phone and if the games dont work right email developer and they prob will update soon enough.

    That's something the developers should have thought about when making their application. As an amateur developer, I've certainly made the choice to not use the keyboard for any reason.

    A lot of them (including SNESoid) includes virtual keys which aren't that bad.

    What SNESoid needs is multitouch support. It's virtually useless without it.

    It has multitouch support if you have Android 2.0 or higher and a phone capable of multi-touch.

    Nice avatar by the way. :)

    Still is awful playing with "touch" buttons. :p

    Developers really have to keep the touchscreen in mine with developing games for touchscreen only devices. The problem is the game development community for Android isn't too large yet. There are some impressive games for the phone, but a lot of titles are still pretty basic. Things have been improving lately though as the Android market is really starting to grow.

    Here's one sweet game btw for these phones.

    ExZeus is very impressive for Android and has some of the best graphics yet for the platform.

    Since the release of the Droid, Nexus One, X10, Desire, and now the Incredible I have noticed a lot of new high quality games. Asphalt is one of them. It plays great without a keyboard too. Emulators are a different story though, they require a certain amount of buttons and with a touch only phone those buttons must become virtual.

    Just use a bluetooth controller. They're on eBay, $15-20 tops, fold up nicely and fit right in your pocket. I used one with my Omnia to play a PSx, SNES, and GBA emulator and they all worked great. I haven't tried it with the Incredible yet though, but it should work the same way.
