    You get the stock Android apps (which are included on Sense anyways) plus Sense apps. Nothing is taken out other than the aesthetics of Sense.

    I posted this earlier, and still stand by it: I don't think we will see anything Incredible-related there. HTC possibly may be showing the Legend/Desire/HDmini, however I feel strongly that the Incredible release will be a Verizon announcement. (The Incredible is a VZW exclusive, similar to the Droid - so I expect it to be handled in the same fashion)

    Umm.. what? That is completely WAYYY off topic, and has NOTHING to do with the Incredible. This thread is not for embracing all kinds of phones. At this point, I'd say most of us are interested in the Incredible - with maybe a few on the fence between the N1/Incredible; otherwise, they would not be in the Official INCREDIBLE thread.

    Sense UI doesn't only give you awesome home screens & widgets, it gives you awesome apps.

    read this for an overview: Review: The new HTC Sense interface on Android phones | Android Central

    Actually, it does replace the app for the better. i.e. the email app on stock phones is replaced with the HTC email client.

    I think i'm paranoid but I wonder if there is some sort of code to this post we are supposed to find out...it almost sounds like he is trying to tell us to watch for something....nah waiting for this phone has definitely made me paranoid and i try to find hidden meaning in everything with hopes that it will lead to a release date....breath....just 8 more days (hopefully) lol

    You are somewhat correct. It does not replace anything - whether its facebook integration or email integration or anything else. You still get the Android facebook app ALONG with an HTC facebook app. You get a Gmail app along with a regular email app (which I believe is included in vanilla Android anyways). What non-Sense users are mostly missing are the extra HTC widgets that are thrown in. The HTC email client is a widget that is pulling from the Android email app IIRC.

    Paranoid of what? Are you under some type of restraining order from buying cell phones? I honestly don't understand the point of "being paranoid" over a cell phone release unless you are the one leaking info out to the public.

    The Incredible will have flash 10.1 :D

    I infer that your theory is that apple/at&t fan boys and possible higher-ups, may in the future, or have already infiltrated this thread and are trying to influence the buying decisions of users here.

    I think first and foremost is that there are not seriously powerful forces at play in or around this thread. Why? Cause as many have pointed out before, we are like a few dudes and a chic who are nuts about android smartphones, we are NOT an army of consumers. How many of us are there? Well i'm sure an admin could give you unique visitors/day but I would estimate that there are no more than 5,000 people who view this thread regularly. Yes, there are over 300,000 views but those count each refresh (non unique). Even if each one of us only refreshed 10 times since the beginning of the thread (and c'mmon you know it's more like 1,000 times) then this only amounts to 30,000 views which is still not anything to speak of on the scale you are eluding to.

    So yeah, is_paranoid(you) = true

    I'm still rocking my LG VX8300 that I got in July of 2006. Bluetooth was an uncommon feature back then!

    I think he's saying that there could be people purposely posting false information or planting seeds of unrest to get us all riled up. Let's be honest, that's getting easier these days as the anxiety around a possible announcement or release draws nearer.

    In other words, he's suggesting not to react to purposely inflammatory or "fanboyish" responses because they are "baiting the bears."

    FWIW, I think he might be right.

    well the only reason i used that word is that it was the title of that post...and it seems that when someone new comes on makes a cryptic post with certain parts of that post capitilized and underlined that there may be hidden meaning....but i see that he tends to just write that way (which is fine btw) but whatever, apparently noone can post anything on here unless you deem it "fit for the thread" I will just go back to lurking...

    Maybe not...but it seems as if many of the new and upcoming HTC phones are popping up there - just not the Incredible
