Well the news from the Android world keeps coming hot and heavy these days. Just 30 days ago VZw release the Droid Incredible and now judging by this picture


htc-incredible-goner.jpg

It looks as if the HTC Incredible isn't going to be around long. I for one am pretty unhappy about this since I do carry the DI now. My guess is the Moto Droid x and Droid 2 are going to be the flagship devices for VZW until late this year and dual core devices come out. I also think supply problems hurt this awesome device.

Droid Incredible saves browser screenshots to internal memory, turns into a privacy nightmare?

By Vladislav Savov posted Jun 17th 2010 3:22AM



18diggsdigg June must be the month when privacy issues leave their hibernation and return to trouble our fragile minds. First we had Flash going loco, then AT&T's airwaves exploded with iPad users' email addresses, iPhone 4 pre-orders started sending people to the wrong account, and now this. Boy Genius Report has come across a rather worrying "feature" of the HTC Sense bookmarking widget on the Incredible, which takes sporadic screenshots of your browsing sessions. That wouldn't be so bothersome in itself, but try to remove said pictures, and you find where the problem lies. Ending the browsing session, deleting your history, and even a full reset to factory settings failed to eviscerate the indiscreet imagery. You have to manually discover their location and delete them by hand. Considering the high likelihood of Incredibles being sold and resold for years to come, this could turn the phone into a little cache of treasure for the proactive identity thief. And since it's a Sense issue, it might be affecting other HTC handsets as well. Wunderbar.

Yep, I'm also glad I decided to wait on the Droid X instead of getting the Incredible when my child decided my current Droid wanted to go for a swim in the toilet :icon_eek:

Though I doubt a vzw rep is gonna comment on that. I would really like some official info, because unless htc just can not make anymore I would not see why they would do that. People not wanting a huge phone (ie droid x) would definitely want the incredible. The incredible has a place, and I do not think vzw spent the advertising dollars to end the run that quick, especially being that the storm and storm 2 got a longer run.

I thought the suit was against Apple by HTC...I ask a friend in the Verizon store and he says he doesn't believe it will be cancelled....It sells to well and people are still willing to wait even with the 2 and X coming...Guess they don't like Motorola....

If this is true, I bet it is because people are using the wifi tether. Verizon just hates it when someone is ablue to USE a phone.

PC may have found the reason why its being discontinued. The screenshots

Imagine the lawsuits that can pour out of this one. Verizon would be pummeled along with HTC in the courts.
