    Less than 48 hours before an official HTC press event and you guys are throwing in the towel? Seems pretty silly

    Not necessarily "throwing in the towel" just yet... just want to make sure that I have something else in place prior to May, personally, and having questions in accordance to what that contingency plan might be! :)

    Same here, I am very tired of waiting, and it seems like when I am close to getting what I think I want (like the Eris) something better IMO comes out, then I wait for that (Verizon N1) and something nicer/different comes along (Incredible) and so on. At some point I just need to draw the line, bite the bullet, and make up my freakn mind!

    I think that there's a lot of speculation out there right now regarding this phone's specs/release date. I can't find another reference to a June date for Incredible. I did find another site that says March, 2010. here's the link:

    HTC Incredible

    Does anybody know how credible this site is?

    Based on the video, pics and descriptions out there, I also question the accuracy of the 65k color TFT display. I have a hard time believing that HTC/VZW would not use AMOLED tech, when the N1 and Bravo do. Interestingly, the above site also says that the Incredible display will be AMOLED.

    June makes me mad. Almost mad enough to call and threaten to take my business to a carrier with decent phones. Like I have a choice!

    Very good post. I think your post points out the incredible arrogance of Google. They are not at all responsive to consumers unless they get bad publicity in the main stream press. Look how arrogant they were with releasing Buzz with the gaping privacy holes. They are only starting to address these issues because of the bad press.

    If you look at the Android forums regarding the lack of bluetooth voice dialing, you'll see what I mean. These forums were started in 2008 and Google only considers this medium priority. The mainstream press that drools over the Android phones must not use them in real life. BT voice dialing is not addressed in 2.1 or in any of the new Android phones.

    Google decides for you what you need and want.

    Yeah, I saw it said March, that would be great! Like I said earlier in the thread, there might be some big announcements since it is the MWC and Verizon has big advertising in the Olympic games.

    I would say 95% of the reports I have read all say AMOLED screen, that is what I am hoping for, among other things. I can not understand the reasoning if they don't.

    My wife tells me I am driving her nutts with all of this talk, I keep updating her for the last few weeks and she is at the point that she wants the phone to hurry and come so I can shut up. She will be getting the same as I get, unless she picks something different.

    I'm right there with you. My wife wants the same phone I get, but is sick of hearing about it.

    Let's hope we learn more about this phone at MWC, but as was discussed before, it may be CTIA that gives us the info we crave.

    Well, see, that's just it! The source that I have access to www.htcsecret.com also said it'd be released in March 2010. That's why it was so discouraging for me to see a June 2010 date being tossed around out there. Here's hoping it's March!! :)

    WHAT!??? No bluetooth dialing?? You got to be kidding me? WOW. Maybe I do want a Windows phone. I am opposed to everything Microsoft stands for, but BT dialing as a medium priority??? I'm ready to ditch HTC, their phones, and android itself. Wish Verizon would get it's act together.

    I'm not convinced that this new site is that reliable. They show an N1 released in January as expected but the N1 showing in April has no mention of CDMA. Would be very disappointing if the incredible had a tft screen. Its shows the supersonic as having tft as well. I think I'm going to wait until something more official comes out before I get too disappointed.
    Hopefully we hear something in a couple of days.

    Deep breath.......trying to center my chi.....I know you are right, Kaelin, but my finger is close to the phone ready to tear into some Verizon customer service rep.

    The Incredible will be AMOLED. Bank on it! That's all I can say. Oh, and have a nice day! :)

    My friend has a droid and this Parrot hands free car kit. I tried it and it works great. The voice recognition is built into the device. So, until google adds BT voice dialing I plan to use this once I get an android phone.


  19. Romparoo

    That is a good work around. I had no idea Android OS couldn't support BT voice dial, that really sucks. However, I haven't used BT voice dialing since I had my BB Pearl about 4 years ago, and I only had that phone for 30 days (do to the fact I have/had sever tendinitis in one of my wrist that little phone just did not work well in my big hand). So, this is not a deal breaker for me. Most of the people I call are set up on speed dial so with a few quick swipes and touches on my HTC Touch I can dial with hardly any difficulty while driving.

    It would be nice if the greatest superest smartest phone/platform in the world would figure out this.

    I would go with March as well. Or March/April. I'm guessing its at Verizon testing as the video showed their software spash coming up. Thats the last step really, everything else is formalities unless it somehow failed testing.
  21. Mykpfsu

    Mykpfsu Android Expert

    That would obviously kill off a March launch.
    But really what phones do they have to introduce now? Bravo, Supersonic, Incredible and Legend? Sony just busted out 3 new phones. The Legend is too underwhelming to be announced by itself. Yes its the Hero's successor and all, but please. The Supersonic and Incredible are more then likely close enough (hardware wise) to be announced together. Incredible has been shown to developers and should be in Verizon testing. So unless Verizon wants June for the sake of June (or HTC is fine being passed by) there's no reason it shouldn't be announced on Tuesday.

    Exactly that...Verizon boot logo's mean its close! They add those in at Verizon's testing level. No need to have it if its still an HTC prototype ;)

    I'm just going to throw this out there. A friend of mine works for a major network here in Ireland (a certain red-loving network). He was talking to a coworker who had this network's roadmap for the next six months. The Incredible is on it, and it's got a release window of March. Now, I know this is one of those 'I know a guy who knows a guy,' but my friend is a tech-wiz, knows his stuff and isn't a bullshitter. I've never had any reason to doubt him, so if the roadmap is correct...

    Those are my EXACT thoughts for the past couple of days in this thread. So this site comes out of nowhere with no sources cited and says that the HTC Incredible will be released in June and everyone wants to buy into it? Well, if that's how little evidence you all need, then why not just believe Newsradio (who was completely without evidence) who said that the Incredible is completely made up and does not and will never exist. That kind of statement holds the same weight as that site holds. Completely unfounded and without citation = me not giving their specs, predictions and/or release date the time of day. Wait till MWC and then we'll start to make our minds up. That site doesn't know what they're talking about. Guarantee.
