    It can dual boot to Windows Mobile 6.1 mode :D

    What are you looking for in 6.1, as a current WM6.5 user I think most of the apps for Windows Mobile are available on the Android Market ... Or at least some variant of the same program.

    Then again I'll probably get an Android phone and realize it's missing something I LOVED in WinMo :)

    I think stericson said that was the case a couple of 40 pages ago?

    Hey guys, just wanted to drop a line and say that I'm breaking down and most likely getting a droid this weekend. My storm 1 has broken my last nerve to the point where I don't care about an ETF because I signed my contract before the ETF got jacked up to $350.

    Also, I'm wanting to take advantage of the BOGO while it's still out there since my fiance will be getting a DROID as well.

    Since I'll prolly be doing it this Sunday, 4/28, that should give me plenty of time to get the Incredible if it does indeed come out in April. If it doesn't however, I guess I'll be rooting, OC'ing, and installing an amazing custom ROM because I'm sure it will be this fall before 2.1 is officially released for this phone lol.

    I still plan on following this thread when I'm bored at work, but I have really enjoyed all this so far, minus the outbreaks of insanity that seems to happen every 20 pages haha.

    Hi, I'm new here - been following this thread for a week or two looking for HTC Incredible information. I really do hope this phone is a) real, and b) coming out soon. But I read an article today that led me to infer that the HTC Incredible either a) doesn't exist, or b) is not coming out any time soon (for me, b is almost as bad as a).

    The article is here: http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/59123.

    It features a discussion with Peter Chou, CEO of HTC, who states that HTC hopes to establish themselves as the "top Android brand." Now that sounds great, but what came next got me disappointed:

    He mentions almost everybody but Verizon. He mentions that they have two android phones coming to AT&T in the next few months. Why not take this opportunity to mention something coming to Verizon, if indeed they have something in the works?

    1. Are we still under the assumption that N1 will be released the same day as the Incredible?

    2. Has anyone heard if the N1 is gonna be available to family plan subscribers?

    I'm pretty sure that neither of these two really have any good reliable answers. I don't think I missed anything on this forum, but Just wanted to make sure. If they do release the N1 early, without an announcement of the Incredible. I might just get one, and try it out for 30 days while I wait for the Incredible to be announced/released. If I have to pay a $35 restock fee, i'll just chalk it up to a phone rental.

    I really don't think I'll miss anything, but I thought my post kinda sounded like I was being an ass so I had to throw something with smile in it. :D

    I'm still getting used to this whole "lack of emotion through text" thing. :eek:

    You're right, it would have been overlooked, seeing that it's seemingly not being released much sooner than the EVO. However, an announcement with "available now" would have kept the attention compared with the EVO which likely hasn't been in development nearly as long as the Incredible.

    The rigorous, drawn out testing program that Verizon goes through is really starting to bite them in the ass now as competitors get stuff to market much faster with better features. I've said it before. The rapid increasing pace of technology advancement has obsoleted Verizon's slow and steady approach to device release. Unfortunately, they're not going to change which is all too apparent by the way they're rushing LTE deployment. This will enable them to boast the nations best and largest 4G network while they push the same dated hardware out the door too little, too late. I guarantee you by late this year, early next, AT&T and T-Mobile will be pushing HSPA+ (21Mbps capable) phones out the door on their 3G network. They may not have LTE, but they have the better scalable 3G network technology that will rival early implementations of LTE.

    LOL. I said "bonus" feature, not "bone us" feature.

    I though AT&T was going with LTE too.

    Quite the opposite, I was like "The dude realises I was joking and theres nothing at all I want from Windows Mobile right?".
    Naw you'd have to be pretty thin skinned to get pissed off at something on a message board, about a phone.

    I've been paying attention to that VZWOffers Twitter account. It seems that they are responding to a lot of people about the Incredible, teasing us saying real soon. I would imagine that most of the tweets to them are from people here.

    In any case, I've been through a few of these waiting games for phones with VZW. From the horrid T720, to the Chocolate to the Dare, I've waited and waited with anticipation and taken the plunge right away. And the same thing happens every time. Some information is released, and anticipation builds. Release dates are thrown around. Those dates pass, and people start talking about how VZW is making a big mistake taking so long to release the phone and how they are going to another carrier. Cooler heads eventually prevail, and then finally, it is released, and then we start talking about everything that is wrong with it.

    From Verizon's standpoint, all they need to do is get it out before June, and they can claim to have the bestest and baddest phone in the US on the best network, which is not something that Verizon can often do (except for the best network part). All in all, these are good times to be on Verizon.

    I need to pay more attention to these smiles ... They really do say a lot. :)

    They are. They are just moving ahead with enhanced 3G first.

    Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Everything with Verizon is a secret! Their business model is to sustain sales until the last minute which is why sometimes phones just show up on their website or stores with hardly a mention. When you have the nation's largest 3G network and 90+ million customers, maximizing sales and revenue from the existing customer base is more important than adding subs. Sprint's advanced EVO announcement, on the contrary, is about curbing potential losses and luring new customers. Big fish vs small fish strategy.

    And that is where VZW shines! They have such a big 3G network that they don't need to improve it -- they can go right on to working on their new LTE 4G network. 1/3 of the country will be covered with VZW 4G by the end of the year. :D:D

    Do you know of any maps or lists of those areas that will be covered and when? I would love to live in one of the lucky cities but don't know where their coverage will be.
  21. kyler13

    kyler13 Well-Known Member

    Later. Originally they were planning on starting deployment in 2011 (vs Verizon deploying now) but there have been rumblings about just upgrading the network to HSPA+ which is a simpler upgrade to the HSPA network. If that's the case, they may take their time with LTE. Understand that EVDO revisions give marginal speed increases which means CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint need to push forward with 4G sooner to push the envelope. HSPA has much more head room for data rates.

    Nah. I would assume major cities, metro areas, etc. As long as you don't live in the middle of nowhere, I guess you'll be good but no maps.
  23. Dustinb

    Dustinb Well-Known Member

    I think I'll probably fall into the second push for LTE coverage. Maybe mid to late 2011 ... Just in time to upgrade from my Incredible :D
  24. woodraskam

    woodraskam Well-Known Member

    Yes the Incredible would be the best phone in June, if none of the other carriers introduced something new. Unlike Verizon, they seem to introduce new phones without an agonizing wait. I wouldn't just assume that the we won't see something from the other carriers before we see Verizon put out the Incredible.

    VZWOffers is absolutely worthless. Back in August, people were pinging them about the Omnia II when that was the next hottest phone coming to Verizon.

    They said real soon.

    It was released in December. :rolleyes:
