Verizon Wireless is warning customers that orders placed today for the HTC Droid Incredible might not be delivered until mid July.
A Typical Problem
In the last few months, smartphone makers have had difficulties meeting demand for most cutting-edge devices due to component shortages, especially for the large, high-resolution screens used by these models.
Verizon’s online store says new orders placed for the HTC Droid Incredible today will ship by July 13.
Overview of the HTC Droid Incredible
This smartphone has a tablet shape designed around a 3.7-inch WVGA (480 x 800) touchscreen.
It debuted running Google Android OS 2.1 on a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. HTC’s Sense user interface is layered on top. An upgrade to Android OS 2.2 is coming soon.
The Incredible is Verizon’s first with an 8 megapixel camera, which offers auto-focus and dual LED flash.
It also has 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD memory card slot, a GPS receiver, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and support for Verizon’s 3G mobile broadband network.
The HTC Droid Incredible is exclusively available from Verizon Wireless, but AT&T and T-Mobile customers can turn to the Google Nexus One, an almost identical device. Sprint users should check out the HTC EVO 4G.
