Anybody know when this mount is going to be available? This will probably be the best mount for the incredible, just like the moto droid had one specifically for it.
How come people worry bout the volume buttons, when you use the car radio buttons to control the volume, or am I missing something?

I purchased the Verizon mount for my wife's Incredible and we didn't like it. The suction mount wouldn't stick to the window of her Honda Fit. She didn't like having to take the phone out of it's protective case to use the car mount. She had absolutely no use for the belt clip-type holder, as she carries her Incredible in her purse.
So, if you are looking to keep your Incredible in a protective skin, the Verizon mount is not for you. I have been underwhelmed by the quality of the OEM accessories available for the HTC Incredible. My MotoDroid accessories are better designed and of better quality.
I got the Verizon mount and went on a trip this past weekend. I think it works moderately well, maybe a 7 out of 10 stars. The suction cup worked very well, but the arm extension is fixed and the way the mount locks into the arm is awkward and seems less than steady. I've got a protective case that is extremely easy to take on and off the phone, so I don't mind that the mounting case won't accept protective phone cases. But this is asinine on the part of the product developers, IMO. Also, when turning the phone from landscape to portrait, the weight of the car charger pulls the phone down a little...I just don't like that; puts stress on the pin dock. It's better to leave the orientation to landscape for the good of the phone. I do think the beefiness of the entire unit is good, it won't fall down when hitting a bump in the road. It's also competitively priced with other units I've looked at. $29 at the VZW store.

I have this arkon mount:
The holder works great for the Incredible, doesn't hit any buttons block the charging port. They have a smaller windshield style too:
I think it looks less chunky and cooler than some of the other windshield mounts in this thread.
