No thanks Blackberry for the Win
The blackberry unparalleled business tools for the win!
Real businesses need real web browsers.
* Needs a touchscreen. Like the Epix, but usable.
* Needs a better camera.
* Needs Opera Mobile pre-installed.
* Needs to change the DAMN DOLLAR SIGN into a period.
* Should have come with a $200 gift certificate to colorwarepc.com
This isn't Incredible vs Evo, it's Incredible vs N1
On the Sprint side I've already talked to a customer who doesn't like how big the Evo is and they're not in 4G so that part doesn't affect them, so they're opting for N1 for Sprint. I'm sure if something like the Incredible was available for Sprint they'd go for that instead. Amazingly enough to us PS dwellers not everyone out there are spec junkies. Not like the Incredible is a slouch anyway. Probably the phone I'd snag if I was still with big red.
Do we really need to know that it comes as a debit card?
HTC Desire > HTC Incredible
Except the Incredible has an 8MP camera and the Desire had an AMOLED screen.
Tethering on Incredible????
Not bad, Not the EVO however - EVO wins.
1500mhz vs. 1300mhz battery
3G/4G WIFI hotspot for up to 8 devices
TWICE the amount of ROM memory
Front facing camera
720p HD video recording
HDMI output for TV
Im not saying the Incredible isnt a good phone.. but I'm def. getting the EVO which clearly is way ahead and like $40 cheaper a month w/ Sprint.
We have to come up with a new label for you guys, lets see we have:
But this is a whole new class of fanboy-ism.....
The promo price is very expensive I think they need to offer lower price or discount the $100 of the mailing rebate.
But at this price, I'd wait for a price drop or until the EVO 4G and see if they lower it.
Anyways....I'll prolly switch to Sprint for the EV...

an ode to flame wars...
The reason I bring this up is because I know a LOT of people who are unhappy with thier Android devices. It seems like every single person who owns an Android is simply biding thier time till the new one comes out because they "love" Android but think they got ripped off with the one they got.
In fact, most of the people who hate Apple on this board and constantly extoll the awesomeness of Android hate thier current Android device!
