    The Shadow will be much faster than the incredible. Just look at the quadrant app graphs. It's about twice as fast WITHOUT 2.2. And the Shadow will most likely ship with android 2.2 while the incredible will probably get it at the end of the year (from what ive heard)

    Get the Incredible, this thing is crazy fast right now without Froyo 2.2 which is coming soon to us. The phones are coming out fast right now and of you don't want to wait this is a great device. It will hold up in the market for a while considering that the hardware and software updates will keep it current with the upcoming models....

    If you are due for an upgrade, you will get the $199 price if you renew for another 2 years with VZW. If you are not eligible, you have to pay full price which I believe is $500 or so.

    I believe you can purchase the phone from any Verizon retailer so long as you sign a new 2 year agreement.
    The BestBuy by me had a few in but they are now sold out. You can buy it straight up for full retail price without added 2 years to you contract, but full retail price at Bestbuy is 600 bucks instead of the 539 at VZW.

    How can it be twice as fast when it is using the same Qualcom processor, and until the device is out, those graphs mean nothing, by the way the Incredible is no slouch, for me and many others it is real fast, and will get faster with Froyo 2.2, and I doubt it will hit the Incredible by years end, this is the phone market, by years end there will be a slew of new phones out, no reason for HTC or Google to hold out on Froyo 2.2 for INC till years end, that six months from now, where do you get your reliable info from, share please.

    Unless Motorola changed plans recently, that have a deal with T.I. to use OMAP chips in their phones. So if that still holds true, the Shadow should be using an OMAP and the Inc. is using a Snadragon.

    It will be very interesting to see the actual specs of the Shadow.....If the Shadow is using a Snapdragon, its using a better one than the Inc. And to me HTC coulda put a wee bit better Snapdraogn in the Inc. Its going in an upcoming Win7 phone.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    Seriously, this Incredible is fast enough for a smart-phone as is, I am not planing on playing war craft on it anytime soon, for me browsing the web, listening to music, playing a few games, checking my emails and keeping in touch with friends is all I need my phone to do, and the Incredible does them all wonderfully.

    Personally I hate Bestbuy but that's because I've had some bad customer service there in the past. I wouldn't deal with them, but that's just me. Whatever works for someone else I guess that's the bottom line...

    Should i wait for the shadow or droid 2? Will it be faster than the current Incredible?


    I was thinking of waiting and jumping on the pre order list for the new phones, since i already would have to wait for the incredible for 3 weeks as it is now.

    Also does anyone know if Skype allows you to do Video Chat through your phone?
