After much anxiety and hand wringing over what to do about a new phone, as of 10:20 AM EST I am officially a Droid Incredible owner!
Like the title says, I've been using an iPhone since the first was released in 2007. After 3 years of struggling with AT&T's crap coverage (NO 3G in my hometown), Apple's annual iPhone release theatrics (waiting in line for hours each year gets SOOOO old) and Apple's dwindling feature set (Editing text on the iPhone is still a pain in the ass), I found myself fed up with all of it, looking for a phone that worked better than it looked.
While I've been using an iPhone for a while, I wouldn't describe myself as the typical iPhone sheep. I almost skipped the 3GS, but AT&T let me upgrade way early. Even back then, I was acutely aware that Android was closing the gap with iPhone. It wasn't until a colleague showed me his Droid running Eclair that I seriously began to consider jumping ship.
Today my shiny new Droid Incredible arrived this morning via UPS and I am blown away with how well it runs (and perhaps more importantly) how FEATURE-RICH this phone is!
The display is absolutely stunning. I hadn't seen an actual Droid Incredible AMOLED display until firing up this one this morning, as every single VZW store I've been to has only the dummy models on display. The colors are incredibly rich with pure, inky blacks.
It's also blistering fast, with zero lag when flipping between screens. Even though I've spent only a few hours with this phone, I'm deeply impressed with this phone.
I'm a tech sales engineer and use about 6000 mins a month on my cell, so it's an important part of professional life, which I think just got a little bit easier.
My colleagues called me crazy for snagging this phone so close to the release of the Droid X, but having seen the screen firsthand, I have no regrets. Recent news about the update sure provided some reassurance!
So, HELLO to everyone! I look forward to chatting with everyone as I begin to explore all the cool features this phone has to offer.
