    Will this new 2.2 update come with the 720P HD video like the Droid X has? Also, will it have that new blockbuster app as well as the ability to connect my phone to the t.v. to play H.D. video? what else should i be expecting with this update

    Sorry if these are stupid questions

    By no means stupid questions. The 720p can actually be had by updating your radio to 2.05. That can be done without rooting. I don't believe the Inc actually has an HD out like the Droid X IIRC. I haven't heard final word on the Blockbuster part yet.

    i looked into the steps it takes to update to the new radio, and they seem too complicated for me (im not very tech savvy). Should i just wait until verizon releases the 2.2 update for my phone? will it have the same upgrades?

    It really isn't as bad as it seems. Check out this thread and see if it makes more sense. I've got a lot of people, shoot me included, that originally weren't going to mess with the phone. Then jumped to doing the radio. Then to rooting. I have done all of the above and haven't looked back. As long as you read carefully and aren't afraid to ask questions, you should be fine.

    Update Radio to Newest Version (does NOT require root)

    Yes, the 2.2 whenever it releases will handle all except for the HD to television I believe. I think I remember the phone being hardware limited on that point.

    HD to tv

    when you say 2.2 will handle everything but the HD to tv, does that mean it will eventually be able to film in HD and save those files for export, just not hook them directly up to a tv because of the output? I would be totally happy with that, as long as I can eventually take HD video...

    I have the inc and my bf has the X and DAMN are his videos incredible...the film he takes is 100 times better than my own vision!
