    I was wondering if the Incredible would have a sim card slot as many of the high end Verizon phones do. If not do you know if there will be an unlocked version with a sim card slot and if so will it come out soon?

    /edit they have a GSM European version with similiar specs as the incredible with a lesser quality camera you should check into. HTC Legend

    So I am guessing my best bet is the Nexus One if I am an AT&T customer. As it can be flashed to Sense UI and has better hardware than the Desire.

    The Desire has basically the same hardware. You will also have to pay full price for the phone and be in a two year contract with the no discount to get any decent data plan out of AT&T.

    I was thinking of getting it off of google to avoid the horrible data plans as I'm planning to use its wifi (most places I go have wifi as I'm still a student). But are there any other suggestions for an android phone?

    No, the HTC Droid Incredible is a non-World CDMA phone, no SIM slot; sorry.

    Like the others have said; look at the Google Nexus One or the HTC Desire if you're in Europe.

    You can only get it from Google. I returned mine. If you use Tmobile you can at least use it in the prepaid or a voice only plan. Tmobile is a lot more flexible. Unless you travel to Europe often enough to have a SIM already from Europe I'd stick with CDMA for the states or Canada. There's the EVO on sprint as well. The big problem is insurance. If you drop the Nexus you're screwed. You will have to pay 530 for the phone and 114 for insurance through squaretrade. But they only cover one time. You will also find out the hard way that when you really need the internet for something there will be no wifi around. If you text alot the the sprint everything plan is really cheap if you live in a Sprint area.and stick to cities.

    If you pay full retail price, I see no reason for you to go into a 2 year contract. You can just do month to month. :D No subsidies to pay off.

    And go for it. It has the best dev community yet. Sense UI ROM, Cyanogen, Motoblur (if you want it).

    Okay people, enough of the playground insults and feigned offence. You're all grown-up enough to know that if you start flinging insults then they're bound to get thrown back, so I suggest that everyone calm down before infractions start getting handed out.

    I think I am going to go with the Nexus One despite the no accident warranty as it has a better developer community and is cheaper than the desire.
