HTC Android range topper now in Verizon shops
As promised, Verizon today began shipping the Droid Incredible to customers as well as its online and retail shops. The HTC phone virtually replaces the Motorola Droid as Verizon's Android flagship and is in some areas an upgrade to the Nexus One. It shares the official Google phone's 1GHz Snapdragon chip, 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen and 4GB of storage but adds an 8-megapixel camera and HTC's Sense UI, including its more advanced on-screen keyboard, widgets and social networking stream.
The phone sells on contract for $200 and will cost the same $530 off-contract as the Nexus One before it was dropped from Verizon's plans. Those who order online today will get their phones on May 4th.
