HTC Droid Incredible Still Plagued by Delays


HTC is caught in a precarious situation as its popular Droid Incredible, Verizon Wireless’ current flagship Android phone, is in high demand but has been continuously delayed due to constraints of AMOLED supplies.

The AMOLED constraint is so bad that HTC is rumored to Super TFT panels, which are not in short supply, and Verizon Wireless rumored to offer Droid X units over the Droid Incredible.

According to one reader who is awaiting their Droid Incredible shipment, “While all orders are running 2-3 days behind schedule, the Midwest region’s shipments appear to be at a standstill. East and West coast customers are receiving their orders while orders made DAYS before in the Midwest are being ignored. The following is an email that was sent last night. This is the first news Verizon has cared to give its customers.”
