    How can the HTC Incredible commercial use the same "droid" sound we all know and love? I thought for sure this would be copyrighted by Motorola. I don't understand, as this phone is not a successor to the Droid. It is completely different in fact. This saddens me.

    It's all about Verizon's marketing strategy.

    The droid "sound" is on the DI as well.

    Wait, no I guess it isn't. Weird, I thought it was.

    r1 and his nonsense strike again. its not the "new droid". its just the latest phone to release under the droid marketing symbol that verizon began with the phone that was actually called the droid. the incredible will be old news as soon as another phone with android comes to verizon, and so on.

    6 months from now, the incredible wont have half the following the droid still does 6 months after release. htc phones never last more than a couple months..because after 6 months, they've released 16 other phones..

    Visit xda-dev sometime and tell me HTC doesn't have a community...


    Anyway, what R1 said was right. He didn't say it was the new Moto Droid? He said its the new Droid under the umbrella of the Droid moniker that Verizon is using.

    That would be smart to use the Droid sound. No sense in confusing ppl. Makes someone new to the Droid scene say "Hey lets get ONE of those Droid phones."

    Ppl, if we get caught up in the whole Droid vs Droid thing, we gonna lose focus on what really matters, taking market share away from the iPhone....:icon_ banana:

    Stay focused folks.

    First of all, you can't copyright a word. Droid is a trademark.

    Second, even before the Motorola Droid was released it was announced that Droid would be a line of Android devices carried by Verizon as well as a flagship device from Motorola. It's very old news that you might want to Google.
