    Verizon has dropped the price of two popular, high-end Android smartphones, the Motorola Droid 2 and HTC Droid Incredible, which may indicate that these models are being phased out to make room for replacements. Both handsets have been decreased from $200 to $150 on contract, and we know for a fact that a more-powerful Droid 2 Global is hitting the carrier this month, although it's unclear if the original Droid 2 will be replaced or remain selling at the lower price. As for the Incredible, it has already seen a somewhat disappointing change when its AMOLED screen became a Super LCD due to ...

    Verizon will be releasing a successor to the HTC Droid Incredible -- allegedly called the Incredible HD -- on November 23rd, according to an administrator over at Droid Forums. Apparently this is the same device pictured on BGR in late August, with eight-megapixel, dual-flash camera clearly visible on the backside, along with the increasingly-popular kickstand. The phone is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, which is the same as Motorola's Droid X, and larger than the 3.7-inch display found on the original Droid Incredible. Admin Miami1683 also claims that the so-called Incredible HD features ...

    Though the HTC Droid Incredible is a 3G smartphone that operates on Verizon Wireless's CDMA/EV-DO Rev. A network, enterprising users have discovered a hidden menu that can be pulled up through Google Gesture Search that reveals 4G settings on the Android smartphone. It could be, since the Sprint HTC EVO 4G and the Droid Incredible have similar OS builds, the 4G settings could be a carry-over from the Sprint development for WiMax. Another possible theory is that in rolling out the Droid Incredible's Froyo ROM, HTC has been busy working on a 4G LTE phone for Verizon Wireless and the hidden ...

    We had previously reported that the Droid Incredible would switch from an AMOLED display to one that uses Super LCD, or SLCD for short, due to Samsung's display shortage. It looks like that the switch had just happened and now the Droid Incredible is shipping from Best Buy with Super LCD in tow. The new Incredibles are also being let out of the gate with Android 2.2 pre-installed on the device. (via: Droid-Life and AndroidSpin)

    After several Droid Incredible shortages due to AMOLED screen this year, and with HTC's late July announcement to officially swtich from AMOLED to SLCD due to Samsung's AMOLED shortage we might say we've seen this coming for a while now. With the precedent of the HTC Desire which is now shipping only with SLCD displays, the HTC Droid Incredible is making the switch from AMOLED to SLCD screens according to a pictured note according to which "Customers purchasing a new Droid Incredible starting around late September will have a device with the SLCD screen". While colors on the SLCD are not ...

    If the matte black back of the HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon Wireless isn't your thing, you can also grab a first-party official HTC back cover in white or red. We had seen the bright red back cover before on the initial spy shots of the device, though when the Incredible launched Verizon opted for a more muted black back. The back covers aren't on Verizon's site yet, but you can pick them up in stores for $25 a pop. The back cover also displays the "with Google" logo. It was widely believed that the "with Google" designation would mean a stock Android experience sans customizations, but ...

    A Samsung executive has reportedly promised a ten-fold increase in AMOLED display production starting in July of next year, when its new facility dedicated to their manufacture will supposedly increase capacity from three million to 30 million screens per month. Lee Woo-Jong, vice president of display marketing, went on to say that he believes that devices using the so-called active-matrix organic light-emitting diode screens will grow by 35 times, to 700 million, by 2015. Samsung builds AMOLED displays for both itself and its competitors, making recent shortages a potential conflict of ...

Now, it seems that the upgrade is widely available and users who are comfortable with downloading the update to their PC, transferring it to a micro SDHC card, and installing it manually can do so if they don't want to wait for Verizon to push out the update. The update file is available from Android Central. After downloading, you'll need to rename the file to "update.zip" and then place the file into the root storage of your memory ...

    The latest tests done by Laptop Mag compares the battery life of some popular Android handsets in the United States, and Verizon Wireless's latest Droid offerings come out on top with the Motorola Droid X taking top honors followed closely by the Motorola Droid 2. With a modified battery life testing custom-created app, Laptop Mag doesn't take into account phone calls, SMS messaging, or other features, but rather the app's main focus was screen usage while surfing the web. They had prepped the phone with these conditions to create as even a playing field as possible: 1. First, we download ...

    How important is a brand name? In the context of cellular phones: very, very important. While standing in line at a local amusement park I sent a text to my wife, letting her know where the kids and I were. As I was putting my phone away I heard someone ask "Hey, is that a Droid?" "It's a Nexus One", I replied off the cuff. "Oh, it looks like my Droid," at which point he pulled out his MyTouch 3G. Realizing he meant "Android" and not "Droid", I replied, "Oh, yeah, mine runs Android, too." We then went on to show off our favorite apps and what we wanted for future devices. But it's the ...
