We won't lie; the HTC Incredible is one of the devices we're particularly looking forward to this quarter. Packing similar specs to the Google Nexus One, only with a higher resolution, 8-megapixel camera and HTC's Sense UI, Verizon have just confirmed that the Android smartphone go up for preorder on April 29th as the Droid Incredible by HTC.
Verizon's HTC Incredible looks set to cast even the carrier's imminent Google Nexus One into the shade, and going by this leaked spec sheet that found its way into the BGR's hands, we're wondering who exactly would pick the Nexus. The Incredible has a 1GHz Snapdragon chipset with 8GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel autofocus camera and EVDO Rev.A. There's also a 3.7-inch WVGA OLED capacitive touchscreen and WiFi b/g/n.
How many of you are still reeling from that Apple keynote this morning? We understand where you're coming from. Those features are a long time coming, but it looks to us that Apple has indeed made it worth the wait. Then again, you might have a different opinion altogether. Thank goodness we have the Daily Slash to distract us from all that Apple news, right? Right. And sure enough, we're going to make sure that we skimp the Cupertino-based news in tonight's edition. First up, with the Best of R3, we've got a seemingly confirmed release date for a pretty incredible device. And then we've got a giveaway to announce on EI. And finally, a little leak for the right moment. And finally, in the dredge net, we've pulled up a cordless light that activates based on movement. We've also got a pretty awesome invention that'll help you if you're lost in the woods. And finally, we get some more confirmation about two new devices from RIM and LG.
It's Wednesday. And interestingly enough, we're probably not the only ones considering today "the day before." The day before what? Well, it's the day before we get to fire up our legendary, homegrown liveblogging system again. We'll be at the iPhone OS 4.0 event, and hopefully you'll join us as we detail what's going down with the latest software update from Cupertino. Until then, we've got tonight's Daily Slash. As we go forth, we'll look into the best of the best in the R3 Media's network. And in the dredge net, we've got the most notorious eReader rumored to make a retail appearance soon, and we have Nintendo telling the world that the iPad isn't for gaming. Then we've got lightsabers that will save your from the dark. And finally, a cellphone that goes way out of its way to be ridiculous.
