The Droid Incredible will launch later this month

We've been talking about the HTC Incredible for quite some time now, but it appears that the long wait is about to end. The Android junkies over at Phandroid have uncovered a staging site for the HTC Incredible, which is now known as the Droid Incredible.

The site allows you to enter your email address and receive more information on the phone and its availability. The site also notes that the phone is coming April 29.

The Droid Incredible will pack quite a punch when it launches later this month. The smartphone will feature a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot for extra storage), an 8MP camera, 3.7-inch AMOLED display (480x800) and will of course come preloaded with Android 2.1.

HTC, the maker of the Droid Incredible, is reportedly in the running to purchase Palm. An acquisition of Palm would give HTC the rights to webOS which could make for some truly powerful smartphones in the future – HTC's hardware prowess and the innovative webOS software platform would be an extremely tough adversary for Apple's headline-grabbing iPhone.

Verizon has just made the Droid Incredible official. The device will be priced at $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. The Droid Incredible can be pre-ordered online starting April 19. You can catch the full press release here.

I don't know whether or not it's good or not, but you can get an unlocked Nexus One ( https://www.google.com/phone/choose?hl=en&gl=US&s7... )that will work with AT&T for $529.

Seems like too much to pay for a smart phone . . .

Smartphones are very expensive. You are accustom to seeing their 'contract subsidized' price. The original Droid was $550 without a contract.

The whole pricing of plans and forced to go to a carrier stuff stinks in my book anyway. The way things are I am starting to loose interest in gadgets. I want a phone that I buy to work on a network I choose without having the challenge the sales dip with the concept that its possible. I killed my blackberry and in protest I went to something that basically does what a phone is supposed to do just make calls (well and text too)

The subsidized pricing that has evolved in the US isn't going anywhere.

A good example is the Nexus One. The sales sucked because Google is selling them without a contract. It really isn't much different than 12 or 24 month same-as-cash deals that retail stores offer all the time.

You can get the Nexus One on contract via t-mobile with your regular subsidized price.

I'd chalk up the lower sales to Google simply not aiming to have large sales with it, mostly aiming to use it to set a benchmark for other Android devices to meet. They've barely marketed it; only via the web, and the rest of the attention has been free coverage from the consumer tech press.
