When the HTC Incredible came out, it had lots of hype. The phone has some great features and Incredible demand. HTC fell short on product to keep up with the demand. The reason for the shortage was the availability of the screen. HTC has decided to change screens from AMOLED from Samsung to SLCD displays because Samsung was using them for their own Galaxy S device. Now they show an 8/6 in-stock date.
The phone is set to get Android 2.2 and the demand is still there if the phones can be shipped. With Droid X coming out and on backorder at the moment, it is the right time to get the Incredible.
