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.

That is a hellava idea. You show up at your favorite mobile phone store, pick out an HTC and then pick your OS. I can see a huge market for that.

Nah, not right now.

Eventually, I hope that's the way the market goes, but right now that average customer just doesn't care/know. We all would know, but grandma and grandpa just don't get it.

I know people that think they have "smartphones" which are really just messaging phones with the wireless career's OS.

In the EU when you turn on the phone for the first time you get a ballot screen to choose your operating system. /sarcasm

I also think it would be a great idea. HTC could be the first to do that. How long does it take to install an OS on a phone? Never did that.

Given how long it takes me to reflash my Droid, probably not very long. It'd be a similar imaging method in the store.

As cool as it would be, I don't think there's a market for it. Most people wouldn't have a clue, nor would they know the advantages and disadvantages of each OS.
