    Gang,

    With the imminent release of the HTC Incredible on Verizon I would like to confirm that the phone can be developed for using the downloadable SDK and Plug in for Eclipse. I would hate to purchase this phone and find out that I can't write my own apps for it without having them published on the marketplace or authorized by Verizon.

    Thanks in advance

    The Android OS is an open-development platform. How/why would they change that for just one phome?

    I understand the open source nature of the android OS. What I am wondering is how Verizon locks it down for deploying your own written apps to your own phone. Can this be done, or do I have to go through some Verizon approval process to run my own apps on my own phone?

    Verizon doesn't lock the phones to marketplace apps only, but it can be done. Look at AT&T, they do it.

    No, you can install your application to your phone directly from Eclipse using a USB cable. That's how I test my applications because the emulator is slow.
