HTC Using Super TFT LCD Displays to Reinforce Dwindling Stock

If you haven't read the review of the Droid Incredible, or the HTC Desire, then we'll add the main draw of those phones right here (even though you should go read them, anyway): Their 3.7-inch AMOLED displays are amazing.

At the beginning of the year, Google called a group of reporters and analysts to Google HQ to announce a new phone, the Nexus One.
