    Hey guys. With android 2.2 looming right around the corner I'm getting a little nervous about my brand new phone being passed by. Do we need to wait for sense 2.2 to get this frozen goodness or will we be able to upgrade earlier? Also if we cant upgrade within sense how hard would it be to load stock 2.2 as the incredible and nexus have the same guts?

    I'm sure we will be waiting for quite awhile since we have HTC Sense with our phones, aside from the fact it has to go through testing with Verizon. The only way I could see you or anyone getting it sooner is with root.

    It'll be awhile. Just sit tight. The google nexus one will get it first and the moto droid will get it after that. The HTC phones running senseui will get it a few weeks to a month or so later due to the senseui integration. Its not a big deal and we won't be left behind but HTC does have to do testing and then it gets passed to verizon. Verizon will do their own testing and then it'll be released.

    Even with root it will take a leaked version to come public for it to be available to us before the OTA update is pushed by verizon.

    Sense takes forever to be updated. If they announce 2.2 soon, I would guess it would be ready for the Incredible around Holiday of 2010. But of course, thats just a guess.

    Well flash running on a Nexus one is a scary thing. Mine hardly even worked with 3G, and would drop the signal and call left and right. And there is still no 3G fix in the works, so I'd really love to see this thing running flash through the Internet on at&t or tmobile. Granted when It does come to vzw, which will most likely be at the end of summer, its gonna rock. Wonder if the EVO ships with it?

    I believe CDMA Nexus One was scrapped completely, not just on Verizon. Sprint backed out, too, citing the Evo as the reason.

    I'm fine with 2.1 - makes no difference to me.

    Me to. The only reason i would look forward to the 2.2 update would be to fix the crappy vanilla android e-mail support but HTC fixed that with their sense UI and HTC Mail.

    I know flash would be nice but its not something I will use a lot.

    Overall I would take Sense UI right now over 2.2.

    Root my friends.. Once we have root, we have Xda. Who will port everything on to the Incredible for us. Don't worry one bit.

    I agree those would be nice but My phone is fast enough and I will never use the storage I have now for all the apps I need. This may change as more apps get relesed but I dont see it happening any time soon.

    I would still rather have sense UI and wait a few more months for 2.2 then have the vanilla adroid with crappy Exchange and POP 3 support.

    Everyones wants/needs are diffrent so this is only my view

    Don't worry, when we do get it, whether it's through root or OTA (over the air) you'll still have sense guys. I used to have vanilla android and now I love sense over it! Sooo much more fun and cooler! But you'll keep it.

    I think we will get it sooner than later. It will most likely be included on the Evo, so any issues with sence will be addressed at that time. I bet we get it mid- to late summer.

    Full flash and a performance boost of 400% sounds pretty good to me!

    plus, until we get senseui integration, it will give enough time for the early adopters to play guniea pig, find issues, and hopefully have the dev team fix them. So hopefully by the time we get to 2.2, it will be nice and patched and working even better. Wishful thinking?

    I agree with this as well... sense UI is the reason I got this phone over the Motorola Droid (I heart HTC's sense). I won't do anything until HTC sense is available with it, but the speed difference is pretty staggering. Either way its going to be a worthy upgrade, whether it happens tomorrow or in 2 months. I'm pumped!

    The apps don't use the built-in 8gb, but they use the 512mb rom

    Wow, I didn't know this... no wonder my memory available is dwindling... Good to know there is a fix for this coming though. It really seems google is doing all the right things.
