    I've had good luck with my 1st day Storm (1) and my December Droid.

    But..

    Appreciate any input regarding picking up the Incredible the first week, or wait a month or so to see if there are any bugs to be worked out?

    The quality of items now-a-days means that there are significantly less bugs. Plus, 2 months later, a bigger and better phone will be out.

    It's HTC and it's not their first android device. I'm pretty sure they can release a, relatively, bug less device. They've been testing it for a while and hopefully have learned from the N1 issues so they can incorporated those fixes into the Incredible.

    I recommend waiting a little bit... but without people picking it up first we'll never know if it has flaws. :p

    I'll decide depending on when my Every 2 expires.

    For fear of being flamed pretty hard...this is kind of a bigger, better version of the Eris. They already worked the bugs out. Of course there are plenty of new things to the Inc like processor and memory.... but it's not like Blackberry trying their first ever all touch screen! :)

    HTC has had time to figure things out on an all-touch Android device...and Google got them to make THEIR device, so if Sergey and Brin trust them, so do I.

    If I could put up with the Storm 1 and the at-home remedies that had to be instituted to get it to work properly, I have no fear whatsoever of the Incredible

    Personally I think that there will be some issues whether you pick it up the day it comes out or 6 months after the release. Look at the Eris and the Droid. Both have been out for months and both still have some minor bugs.

    Actually the Nexus One is the bigger, better version of the Eris (minus Sense UI, but add Android 2.1) They both have a trackball as well.

    This is Verizon. They test their phones ad nauseum. I think you're safe picking it up right away. I know I've been waiting since August last year so I'm not going to be sitting on my hands for a few weeks when this phone comes out.

    i agree. im hoping that vz's demanding testing was able to foresee any problems pre-release and have things fixed. htc makes some good products spec wise but thier qc control continues to be questionable at best. i wont wait and put my faith in the testers for vz on launchday.

    Wait, Hell no. I don't know about everyone else but I have been waiting for this since Nov. I will be opening the Verizon store that day. My NE2 was up in Jan.

    The Nexus One may be physically bigger in length and width, than the Incredible, but not better than it. If the rumors are true about the Incredible, it also has the same processor speed, and a larger ROM. But what has been confirmed is that it has an FM tuner, which the Nexus One doesn't have, and it has an 8 megapixel camera to the Nexus One's 5 megapixel camera. So at the very least, the benefit of the Nexus One over the Incredible is 1000 to 768 processor(if the latest rumor isn't true). The benefits of the Incredible over Nexus One are, camera, and FM tuner.

    If I find out that the Incredible has a stronger signal than the Eris - fewer dropped calls, fading in and out, etc. I will buy it immediately! Today was the last straw for me - another call that should have gone just fine did not: "Can you hear me now?" "Hello? Hello?" :mad:

    I don't think I can wait another day. I've been holding out for an N1 for Verizon when the Desire hype started gaining steam. Jumped on that boat only to land here. :cool: It shall be mine! <insert evil laugh here>

    I was quoting TheSultan and his comparison of the Incredible to the Eris.

    Actually the N1 has a FM tuner, it just isn't enabled. You probably won't see any difference between 5MP and 8MP because it's a camera phone and will probably use the same crappy optics. The Incredible may have a 1ghz processor, but you won't notice the difference between 768 and 1000.

    It really comes down to form factor, UI, updates, and cost.

    That's actually based on specs posted here by Stericson based on a device dump on the test device he got his hands on. The underclocked snapdragon was also from this forum when NKT got a hold of a separate test device. Funny thing is, when other sites quoted the specs, they intermixed the two separate sets of specs. Both devices could have been set up identically. The main difference is that Stericson's device dump confirmed that the snapdragon ran at .998Ghz and .245 @ idle. He's also the source of the 6+GB of ROM and the RAM numbers you see quoted now.

    The dumb question I have is does the clock speed have affect on battery life?

    Yes, the higher clocked the processor, the more power it uses, and the more heat it produces as a byproduct.
