I expect to see the embargoed HTC device listed there real soon
There not even a subcategory for phone hardware, so good luck with that.
Can you imagine how many people's heads are going to explode when we go from having zero confirmed news, to literally dozens of reviews the minute the embargo ends?
What if its the Nexus One? LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
What's the Nexus One?
Incredible for the WIN!
Yes, there is. Check my post here:
I also contacted the people running the contest at their email below to see when the embargo will be lifted and we can vote on it. Sneaky eh? Let's see if they respond
Why would HTC embargo information about a phone thats been out for months?
I saw that and the catergory is "ACCESSORY" a phone is not an Accessory.
Subcategory: Mobile CE - Accessory
Just a thought.. Has it been confirmed that they are in fact releasing it with the name 'Incredible'? Maybe VZW reps have seen an HTC device with a different name.
I think it will be released as the Incredible because of the leaked inventory screen shots. IIRC, it was list as the ADR6300 model and description HTCINC ...
Hello all, it's resident sleuth onlyever here with tons of JUICY confirmed information.
I visited my local Verizon store, and talked to one of my friends who works there. The conversation was as follows:
Me:"So, do you know of any new Android devices coming to Verizon?"
Rep:"Yeah, we're getting an HTC model, and the Google phone!"
Me: "So I know you're getting the Nexus One, and this HTC device---it's the HTC Incredible, with an 8 megapixel camera, Android 2.1 w/Sense."
Rep: "Yes, we know about the phone."
Me: "When can I expect to see it?"
Rep: "They don't ever tell us any release dates..."
Rep: "We're also getting an Apple device!" [This perked me up real quick!"]
Me: "You're getting an iPhone, iPad...?!?!!?!?!?"
Rep: "It's essentially a mini version of the iPhone, we've already started testing... it won't be called the iPhone though."
Me: "cool. So is it true that The End of life for the Eris is April 1?"
Rep: "I haven't heard that, but I know we're about to send out the 2.1 update to it..."
That was the substance of the conversation, as close to exact wording as possible.
I totally belive him, because he's a good guy, and I'm not the kinda person you lie to!
My gut tells me they are going to announce the 720p recording capability when they make the official announcement. Can't wait for Tuesday even though I will not be able to spend a single minute online to check for any updates.
so just called my local verizon store, and asked for the htc incredible.
Guy knew exactly what i was talking about, said he didn't have them in stock, and didn't know when exactly the new devices (oh yeah, thats "devices," as in plural) would be arriving. he did say "a couple of weeks".
Hope this helps to tide ya'll over till CTIA
Eris was listed as the Desire in the same system. So it probably will change.
Good point I wasn't aware of that.
that goes exactly with what my source said a while ago, who also said "the incredible would be the much better choice" between the two
The category is:
Subcategory: Mobile CE - Phone or Smartphone
CTIA - The Wireless Association
Just a reminder that the ADR6200 that was captured in the VZW inventory in September of '09 as the "Desire" became the "Droid Eris" upon official release.
Edit: Nocturnal beat me to it!
I don't think that we are going to get any news until CTIA starts. I feel like we are just digging and digging and never reaching water
So given that do you think the Eris was a special case because of the use of the Desire name by HTC's current device. I think HTC had more to do with the name change then VZW did. In any event we are very close to finding out something it just makes since.
Honestly, I wouldn't even know. I do know that the floodgates opened once we discovered "ADR6300" in the Inventory system. All of a sudden, our resident PI's were able to find pictures from HTC employees, BT certifications, schematics, etc. If "Incredible" does not in fact turn out to be its name, I wonder how much info we could have found - from overseas especially - if we had the actual name.
That's the first thing that came to my mind too.
Just a thought. As we're trolling for info from our "sources". Let's make sure that they're not getting their info from us (AndroidForums.com). Like the supposed press release photo's. I think that we're creating enough waves that they might be reading our posts and repeating them to "us" as fact.
Main point make your source's source isn't your internet alias.
Thoughts: The mini iPhone was rumored for months. I am glad you mentioned it. I hate the big one, so why would I settle for a small one?
Interesting that they are already testing it and that he knew of the Incredible. Good work.
That stated, I don't trust Verizon CSR's. It not that I believe they are bad people, I just believe that they aren't well informed.
The Incredible will have a 3'x5' plasma screen.
...Quick call your sources and see if they repeat this information to you.
