If I had to guess, I don't think Apple wouldn't announce anything at CTIA, but rather on their own stage, at their own developer's conference, in their own city where they have control. Funny how the 1984 Super Bowl ad was about Apple being the sledgehammer that defies Big Brother, and now...they are Big Brother. While I'm playing with my Ouija board, Apple would bother because this way, they could get you to buy two instead of one. Remember when the first iphone came out? 3G was just starting to gain momentum around the country and that phone didn't work on 3G. The one next year did, and does anyone know of someone who bought the original iphone and the 3G? If there's a way to get a consumer to buy the same thing twice, who wouldn't exploit that? In a way, this is sort of what's happening a little with the Android fragmentation debate as of late. Entelligence: Will Android fragmentation destroy the platform? -- Engadget Since this is the Incredible thread, let's think about that for an example. Maybe someone bought the Droid or Eris within the last few months. That's nice, but now, how about a phone more powerful than either? And we'll take the UI from the little one and use the same screen size as the one from all those commercials? Great! We all buy that one, and then four months later we hear about the NEXT VZW Android wet dream. 4,3" screen, full HD, dual-core processor, 6 GB RAM, 3D Holigraphic UI, Lightsaber, and it makes a killer Ruben for you when you need to eat . A bit much, I know, but the point is, Apple, HTC, Google, Motorola, Verizon, At&t, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc... none of them want us to be happy for too long; just happy enough to throw more money their way every time they release something new. Whenever the Incredible gets released (or whatever they end up calling it) I think that it will be good enough with respects to hardware and 2.1 that it has the strong possibility of remaining on the higher tier for a good while, but only time will tell when all of the next crop of large screen, snapdragon and beyond, super AMOLED, with more and more advanced versions of Android handsets come into our hands.
