Droid Incredible put on hold, for now

Verizon HTC Droid Incredible hands on 006 536x7141

Unfortunately for you fans of the Droid Incredible, hoping to get it on Verizon's network, you are going to have to wait. It turns out that, because so many people want it, the phone will not ship until July 12 at the earliest. It looks like you guys are going to have to wait for a little less than a month to go buy, in order for it to even be shipped to you. The popular phone is definitely considered a flag ship of Verizon's android phones since it was released. Verizon has stated that they have had problems meeting demand due to a component shortage on HTC's end. The main component they are having trouble obtaining, is the 3.7-inch AMOLED screen from Samsung.

With such a long delay, folks who may have been waiting to buy an incredible may decide to buy a different device. By the time the Incredible starts shipping, several new options will be available on the market. They may choose to go the Apple route and buy the newly announced iPhone 4, or stay on Android and buy the Samsung Galaxy S. Both alternative phones have their negatives and positives, but with so many new phones being released and some already released you can not argue with the fact that now is a great time to be a smartphone fan.
