    Remember those AMOLED shortages? I'm sure many of you had experienced this firsthand, while waiting for weeks on end for your backordered Incredible. And even though some of these waits have been alleviated over the past few weeks, there still are issues filling these orders. But let's not forget, the Incredible was not the only device affected by the shortages. The Nexus one and its international cousin, the Desire, both were affected similarly. And we presumed the solution all along was for HTC to switch from an AMOLED to a Super LCD (SLCD) Display. Well today, the switch to SLCD was made official, kinda. The Desire and the Nexus One both were mentioned in an HTC Press Release, but oddly absent from discussion was the Droid Incredible.

    Was the Incredible simply overlooked in the PR, and HTC really does care about its Verizon flagship? Or is something more nefarious going on? Oh and for those curious, the Nexus One was discontinued in the United States, but is still being offered at various resellers across the globe, including Bell, Telus, and Vodafone.

    Check out the full Press Release, and let us know what you think:
