    If you somehow had doubts about the upcoming Droid-branded smartphones coming to Verizon soon this will probably convince you as the entire Droid line-up was pictured while listed in the carrier's system. We've got the Droid Bionic, -- which is your Motorola Atrix 4G with less RAM -- and the Droid X2 -- which recently showed up on NenaMark shedding light on its qHD screen and Tegra 2 chip. Also, there's your Droid Charge -- ex-Stealth with Galaxy S-like specs, except the 4.3-inch screen and 4G LTE -- and of course the Droid Incredible 2 -- the HTC Incredible S with a retail packaging that ...

    It looks like Verizon is cleaning house in anticipation of upcoming smartphone releases, including the Incredible 2/S, by ceasing sales of the original HTC Incredible, just a few weeks shy of it being one year since the phone's debut. Over at Verizon's website, you can see that the Incredible is no longer listed amongst smartphones currently available for sale. That situation may be different in Verizon retail stores, depending on current stock, but we imagine it's soon to disappear from them as well. Sure, technology improves, and new models will inevitably replace the old, but we can't ...

    HTC reached out to a curious customer a few days ago, revealing in an email that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Thunderbolt would be forthcoming sometime during Q2. Apparently HTC was in a mood to keep up with these revelations to individual users, instead of issuing a formal statement, as the company has responded to a similar inquiry into the original Incredible, also putting it on track for a Q2 Gingerbread release. Admittedly, both these statements, despite coming through official HTC channels, aren't as reliable as a press release or statement attributable to an HTC exec. ...

    Before you get too excited, know that what you're about to see is highly experimental, and it doesn't work too well. An industrious Droid Incredible owner has managed to port pre-release Honeycomb onto his device. While most things don't work, this begs the question: if you could, would you install Honeycomb onto your phone? You'd get the benefits of the new tablet-friend OS: the new notification system, a better multitasking UI, improved homescreen management, and much more. Surely in due time after we get the AOSP release of the final version of Honeycomb, we're likely to see Honeycomb ...

    Google put GPS navigation companies on notice when they released Google Maps Navigation -- for free. They did it again when they updated Google Maps with vector imagery rather than bitmap tiles, and added 3D buildings. Today Verizon Wireless announced some major changes to their VZ Navigator VX that will help them stay relevant to Google's offerings. Now available on certain smartphones (DROID X, DROID Incredible, and the Samsung Fascinate), this new version of the app provides "customers with 3D navigation views using enhanced 3D city models and true-to-life images of highway and exit ...

    Plenty of smartphone users buy protective cases for their expensive phones, to spare them from any incidental damage the world may kick up in the phone's direction. Apparently the phones are willing to reciprocate, as one HTC owner found his phone protecting him, deflecting an incoming bullet. John Garber is employed as a valet at an Atlanta night club, where he was working one night when some disgruntled patrons of the club fired shots in the building's direction. One of those bullets passed through Garber's jacket, connecting with the smartphone he kept in his left chest pocket. Instead ...

    The DROID Incredible and DROID Original are both getting Gingerbread builds -- not from Verizon, HTC, or Motorola, but from the open-source developer community. Who needs Verizon or device manufacturers anymore? ROMs for both devices aren't quite 100% functional yet (who needs GPS and camera functionality anyway?), but resolving the final few bugs is only a matter of time. What do you think? Are you ready to take the plunge and replace your stock ROM with a custom ROM? Have you already done so? Are you going to wait for Verizon to release an official Gingerbread ROM for your phone? How ...

    Dell Mobility Store is basically paying you $25 to get an HTC Droid Incredible in an offer ending November 29, 2010 (or while supplies last). If once you were dreaming about the best Android device out there, now, eight months or so later, you get a $25 Dell Gift Card to go with your free HTC Droid Incredible from Dell Mobility Store when you sign a new two-year activation through Dell's web site. Rated by us at that time at 4.5/5, the Droid Incredible is sporting a 1GHz Qualcomm QSD8650 Snapdragon Processor, 8GB of internal storage, 748MB ROM, 512MB RAM, 3.7-inch SLCD WVGA (480 x 800) ...

    Amazon's big smartphone deal this weekend focuses on the Droid series of devices. New customers with Verizon Wireless will be able to pick up any of the current Droid-labeled models on-contract for a mere penny. Last weekend, Amazon was promoting AT&T phones for a penny, including the two remaining Windows Phone 7 handsets that hadn't sold out yet. If Android is more your cup of tea, you now have the three latest Motorola Droid models and the HTC Incredible to choose from. The brand new Droid Pro is currently out-of-stock, but considering it lists for about $180 after rebates when bought ...

    This morning, HTC released the sourcecode to the T-Mobile myTouch 4G's kernel. This doesn't mean much to the average Android user, but to developers and modders it means that ROMs and tweaks can be developed to enable all sorts of customizations and optimizations. Along with the myTouch 4G kernel, HTC also published a pair of "Maintenance Releases" for the T-Mobile G2 and Droid Incredible. This isn't the entire sourcecode for the device as some other news outlets are reporting, it's just the kernel, not any proprietary, closed-source bits. Even still, it's good news all around!

    We had strong reasons to believe Verizon's V Cast Market was coming to the HTC Droid Incredible in future maintenance update and it looks like Verizon is already pushing out a minor update to handsets since last evening. The 18MB update being pushed out is a minor update in itself but it contains Verizon's V Cast Market which is the place to buy applications, similar to the classic Android Market, only that it allows paying for the purchased applications via adding the additional costs to your bill, rather than applying to your credit card. The version number is 3.26.605.1 with a Baseband ...

    Verizon may be releasing the HTC Incredible HD as an LTE-capable device on its nascent post-3G network early next year, possibly in March, according to a credible tipster on Twitter. User black_man_x, who seems to be a Verizon employee from the early access he gets to many pre-release devices, casually tweeted the other day that he "just saw something so incredible that it was almost HD... and LiTE as a feather." It's fairly clear from the language that he is referencing the rumored followup to the Droid Incredible, supposedly the same kickstand-equipped device pictured some months ago in ...

    Verizon is making good on their promise to bring their own branded Market, V Cast Apps, to Android devices. In the maintenance update coming soon to the Droid Incredible Droid Incredible Verizon will add their V Cast app market -- without much fanfare. In fact, it seems as if they didn't want anyone to notice at all. "Verizon Wireless will begin pushing a software update to the DROID Incredible next week. The update includes software enhancements that will pre-install V CAST Apps on the phone. We said earlier this year that we'd be expanding V CAST Apps to the Android platform, and the ...
