Dell will pay you to take an HTC DROID Incredible

Looking for more excuses to avoid battling the Black Friday crowd? How’s this for a deal: the Dell Mobility Store will pay you $25 to take an HTC DROID Incredible — seriously. Dell is currently offering Verizon Wireless’ HTC DROID Incredible for free with a 2-year activation. Shipping is also free, and Verizon’s activation fee is waived. On top of all that, you’ll get a complimentary $25 Dell gift card with your order. We’re not sure there’s a better deal to be found right now. Of course the DROID Incredible is a little long in the tooth these days, and we’re not sure its specs will be overly competitive in 2 months let alone 2 years. But for the smartphone lightweight in your life who just needs a decent device, Dell’s deal is as good as it gets. More →

HTC DROID Incredible OTA update begins rolling out

HTC DROID Incredible OTA update begins rolling out

Verizon Wireless began rolling out a new minor software update Thursday evening. While the listed improvements are hardly earth shattering, there is one addition that is of particular interest: Verizon’s V CAST Apps store. The new store will allow DROID Incredible users to download and install applications in a manner similar to the Android Market, but V CAST Apps supports carrier billing. This means purchases made can be billed to a subscriber’s Verizon Wireless account as opposed to a credit card. The update, delivered over the air as an 18MB file, should be pushed out to all users over the next few days. Hit the jump for a full change log. More →

HTC Wildfire, Incredible, EVO 4G to get Android 2.2 by December

HTC Wildfire, Incredible, EVO 4G to get Android 2.2 by December

froyo

Pocket-lint has HTC’s global PR and online community manager, Eric Lin, on the record saying that his company will be “done with our Froyo updates before Christmas.” Lin explains that porting all of HTC’s applications (Sense UI. etc.) over to Android 2.2 and testing said software is no small task. The full quote is as follows:

“It takes time to port all of our applications over to Froyo and then make sure that it is running well on each of our devices. That’s not like a one week kind of project. We need to make sure that our applications are taking advantage of the Froyo features. To make sure that they’re all running properly on the OS now that it’s a new version. And then to make sure that it’s running on our hardware as well as we expect.”

This is one reason we would like to see manufacturers, and carriers, release less moded versions of Android; less testing for third-party apps, shorter QA time, and so on. What do you think Wildfire, Incredible and EVO owners? Is this the timeline you were expecting, or are you a little disappointed? More →
