    So we've had these "DROID Incredibles by HTC" for about 3 weeks (or a month if you got yours early). WE forum stalkers knew about this phone for months before it was released so we were early adopters of it.

    Some of you gripe or question the Verizon marketing machine by not making it visible on TV (until recently) or other ads meaning the general public has no idea that this phone is out there.

    I have not run into anyone else with this phone yet. Not co-workers, not people on the street, not at a coffee shop etc. I like being the only one of the block with this shiny new toy. I have had a few folks ask about it and I felt like salesperson telling them all about it. [folks: "what is that a phone?" me: "yeah. its the new DROID Incredible. It has this, this and this, etc.]

    The Incredible is very cool and still a novelty at this point. Its not to the point where everyone and their dogs has a Blackberry or an iPhone.

    Have you seen other Incredibles/Incredible users out and about?

    I've only seen one, and they were an employee with VZW I know. I do know that the VZW stores are really pushing the device.

    Personally I think their marketing was genius. By the sound of it, they can't keep enough of them in stock.

    a well known fact is that the incredible is on backorder because of the screen for it not being available. i truly believe this phone wont be a BIG seller. I hope they get the screens so that it can be a big seller...
    but either way, im glad i got mine!! (only child syndrome) :D

    I was at the premier for Iron Man 2 at a local theatre called "The Hippodrome".. 72" Screen..

    Anyhoo.. Three guys behind me all had an incredible, and I didn't realize it til I overheard them.. I turned around and waved mine around for a bit.. we all smiled in dork-like excitement.

    I've come across people who recognize my phone, but otherwise no other Incredible owners..

    Well they did have 150,000 before the release date, so we know they sold that many in a couple of weeks.

    I work at a hotel, and we had a meeting planner come through recently that had one. She was a very nice lady but not a very techy type, so I wound up being her "droid concierge" for about five minutes.

    Only other one besides mine I've seen in the wild. I have heard lots of people talking about it, though. It has more mindshare than marketshare at this point. (did I say that right?)

    Because of the case I've had for mine, it kind of looks like an iPhone with a VZW logo at a glance. I've had people think it's a VZW iPhone...

    A friend of a friend had one when we went to the movies last week, but he's a technofile and has service through 3 providers with like 8 different phones, so I think he got it more to try it out and play with it for a few weeks than to use it as his primary

    Same here. And they all hate me for having an Android... But other than people on my plan, I've not seen this device anywhere else, after seeing the line they had at Best Buy on launch day

    I haven't seen any others. I've got a couple of friends I've turned on to them who are waiting for them to come back in stock, though.

    Just 2. One at a local Pub and a friend of mine pre-ordered when I did and has one. ;)

    I like to go into the Verizon store and pull it out and ask about accessories. :D

    Same here I haven't seen anyone else with one. I drive cab at a university and have it in the car mount for music and hands free calling. All kinds of people ask about it but nobody has one. Had only seen 3 other people with Droid's before so leads me to believe even college kids are out of the loop.

    You will see at least two thirds less of what you should, since Verizon was cut at the knees in regards to supply, due to HTC and Samsung display production issues. No high volume shipment until mid June.
