Does anyone have a droid incredible? If so, how does it stack up against the Moto Droid?

Anyone have any iside info on the Samsung Galaxy coming out in June?

Android 2.2 was released last week. I'm not sure when Verizon will send the update to Moto Droid owners. 2.2 will support Flash and have some other good upgrades.

Nice, I didn't know flash was going to be supported anytime soon. I have the moto droid, I love it.

I have the Eris I love it. I've had it about 2 monthe now. I love it but I'm still learning things about it. My biggest complaint is there isn't a flash for the camera (which the clerk in the verizon store told me there was) and I found out about the Incredible when it was just over the 30 days, 32 to be exact, I had to return it and they wouldn't allow me to exchange it.

I just got the Incredible. The lack of physical keyboard scared me away at first, but I use ShapeWriter which is a keyboard where you slide across letters to type and it makes it a hell of a lot faster.

When just comparing the two besides that, the Inc has a 1ghz processor and the Moto Droid has a 550mhz. The speed is definitely noticeably different. Sound is great, the 8mp camera is awesome.

Conclusion: The incredible is awesome, get it.

I have a Straight Talk phone. It kind of sucks but I'd rather pay $30 a month than $130. Verizon's prices = Consumer Rape.

So now there is a Droid X
http://phones.verizonwireless.com/droid ... X_Confirm2

VZW is pulling an AT&T and allowing anyone who is due for an upgrade in 2010 to upgrade early.

I am torn between the X and Incredible..... Any tech savy guys, what phone is better?

Won't have reviews on the X until engadget gets their hands on it fully.

I asked this in the iPhone thread, so might as well here too:

What's the performance like if you tether a laptop to a Droid?

I also have the Incredible and I love it. Much better than the Motorola Droid in my opinion. I have no need for a physical keyboard so getting something considerably thinner was a big plus. Moto's Droid always felt unnecessarily bulky to me, you don't get that at all with the Incredible. Very similar in size to the iPhone. No complaints at all with the phone, but I've only had it about a month.

I've seen the Droid X and the thing is a beast and not necessarily in a good way. Super powerful but it's still a phone and needs to fit in my pocket. Unless you are rocking some Jnco's from 1997 that ain't going to happen. And do you really need an HDMI output on your phone?

If you are in the market for an Android phone on Verizon and you don't want or need a physical keyboard go with the Incredible. If you want one, go with the Motorola Droid. If you want an undersized netbook that can make calls, go with the Droid X.

How tall are you if you don't mind me asking? I'm 6'4-6'5. I'd like the droid X. I just want to get a comparison in my mind.

I'm 6'0". I like long walks on the beach, cuddling in front of the fire place and someone who loves to listen.
