    Droid Incredible back in the box, getting sent back to Verizon today. Stealing Droid back from wife. Here are my thoughts..

    - I liked some of the things that sense added. Most of the widgets aren't really my style, but like the menus, dialer, phone screen, etc. (Most of which of these I can have on the Droid)

    - I feel like it was snappier than the Droid, even when the Droid is overclocked, it was just smoother and never had any lag anywhere.

    - No root, I might get it again after it's rooted, but by that time a new phone will likely be out. Hopefully Motorola doesn't go to the lengths of HTC is with locking their phones down.

    - It's just not different enough to justify upgrading from the Droid, the camera is nice, I like the form factor (I don't ever use the keyboard on the Droid) I think it is the best Android phone out right now, but it will be eclipsed soon and until it's rooted the Droid is more what I am looking for.

    So far every android phone has been rooted. It will be rooted. They rooted the nexus and the desire, so the incredible is not far behind.

    Well almost every Android phone. There is this pain in the ass phone known as the Backflip that so desperately needs to be rooted.

    I wish these were true but alas they are bull****. The root which this individual obtained was using a MotoDev Kit and cannot be reproduced any other way. This fallacy has been outed a while back. Thanks though but unfortunately this is old.

    That's a mighty cruel thing to do to your wife. I'd get my wife's droid away from her only by prying it from her cold, dead fingers. And I'm not sure she'd give it up then!

    ROTFL. That just struck me as reallyfunny. I just have this image in my head of seeing headlines on CNN (or even geek.com), "Husband Killed By Enraged Droid Wielding Wife".
