    I can never see anything like this happening as that is just more money lost to VZW.

    are you Fing kidding me???

    why didn't they just come out with this in the first place???
    i waited so long to update my phone to wait for the best one possible, and I finally got the Dinc, and now theres a new one coming out already? that is bigger and better? with a front camera, bigger screen, better design (hello? the ridiculous Dinc camera sticks out half an inch from the rest of the phone! disaster waiting to happen. and the topographical map on the back is just annoying)

    to whoever posted about switching phones three times in one year, what did that cost you? were you able to do any kind of trade in with your old ones to knock down the prices of the new phones? or did you have to pay full price for each?

    i know i should be excited for this, but us Dinc users are just going to have to sit by and watch all the noobs reap the benefits of what our phones were all lacking and they finally took the hint and fixed!

    RAAAAAGE!

    4G is rolling out in q4 and early 2011 in a lot of markets and VZW will need some phones in order to rape the customers on LTE data pricing. I bet its 4g
    My Incredible is just right sized for me, if not a smidge big for qwerty tapping

    If people are going to complain about new devices coming out every couple months then you shouldn't be buying expensive gadgets at all.

    The Google CEO said they expect a 3-6 month life-cycle from the manufacturers for their Android devices. Get used to it.

    I think it's awesome. I love that new devices are constantly coming out. Way better than waiting 3 years for a new iPhone that doesn't offer you anything new :)

    This will be a different device and not a new Incredible. Honestly, the current Incredible is as large of a phone as I would want and this new device seems like it is going to be a good deal bigger. I had originally wanted to get the Droid X but after playing with it in person the thing was just to large. If I want a tablet I'll get a tablet. I want a phone that does not require a backpack to cart around comfortably.

    LTE capable?

    unless this phone is LTE capable why would someone who has an incredible or any other droid for that matter get this one when the LTE phones will probably come out right after this one is released?

    this phone will probably have the shortest lived time at the top of the totem pole of any verizon phone in the past year and a half.

    if it is LTE ready then that's a whole different story and a game changer...

    lol ... every new phone seems to be a "game changer".

    I thought I'd like a bigger device too. But the DX is always getting stuck sideways in my pocket, plus it is hard to use one handed because you can't reach the whole screen. Tons of people will love the 4.3" display, of course.
    That being said, I'd think the Inc HD will be a fantastic device ... it will fit in nicely with all the other fantastic devices we have available to us. ;)

    Android may be a game changer, and the Droid and N1 played a big part. But now all devices have a 3-6 month lifespan. So there really ain't much time to be a game changer anymore - just the hot device of the month/quarter?

    Is that a sideways Droid X in your pocket or are you just glad to see us? :p

    4" screen is the perfect size. With a higher resolution it will be perfect. Got the Fascinate today and it fits perfectly where no other device stands. I really hope 4" screens become the new standard.

    I somewhat agree. Although many of us will not see LTE until? late 2011?
    Look at WIMAX. I know it is a smaller company, but it takes a while to roll this out. I am happy with 3G. And if LTE comes out sooner, my 3G will have less traffic. :)
