Back in early January when the Nexus One was announced, Google already had plans to bring a CDMA flavor of its flagship device to Verizon sometime in the spring of ’10. If you were holding out, convinced the Nexus One would be your device of choice, it looks like Google is instead directing you to HTC’s latest and greatest, the Droid Incredible.
The Droid Incredible packs a 3.7″ OLED display, 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus, Android 2.1 beneath HTC’s Sense UI, and up to 32GB of storage through MicroSD. Set to be released this Thursday, April 29th, the HTC Droid Incredible will only be available through Verizon Wireless unlike the Nexus One through Google’s online phone store. As Google made clear with the launch of Google.com/phone, only devices that deliver the “Google experience” will be available through their online store.
