Looking to take on AT&T and the iPad, Verizon Wireless Chief Executive Lowell McAdam has told The Wall Street Journal that his company and Google are working on tablets. Whether the device runs Android, a smartphone OS, or Chrome OS, a cloud OS, is not known, but I would rather have the former. Imagine an 8-10″ slate that has 3G and voice calling on Verizon. More »

So the iPhone, under the original terms, is still contracted to be an AT&T only phone until 2012. Court documents reveal that back in 2007, Apple and AT&T signed the deal, but what is not known is if the contract has since been amended. More »

Microsoft’s stab at semi-smartphones is a mess. First of all, the prices are inexplicable: on $70 per month voice and data Verizon contracts, the Kin ONE is $50 and the TWO $100 after $100 rebates. If the phones were special, then shelling out $70 monthly might be worthwhile, but they are not. More »

From Htcyou: A tad shy of 3 minutes is all that it takes to unbox and disassemble Earth’s sickest Android smartphone, the HTC Droid Incredible. Done in stop-motion animation, the high-definition clip is as entertaining as it is informative. More »

From Htcyou: As part of the Iron Man 2 marketing campaign, LG is also holding a contest to give away an “LG Ally and 1 year FREE service contract, 2 tickets to the U.S. premiere of a Marvel movie, 55-inch class LG “Infinia” LED HDTV, and LG Network Blu-ray Home Theater System.” More »

From Htcyou: Yesterday’s BGR rumor has been ratified. Verizon is indeed getting an LG smartphone that runs Android 2.1, has a 5-megapixel camera, and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, but it is not named the “Aloha.” More »

From Htcyou: It is too bad that the advertisement fails to show the device itself. I am not sure whom the commercial is shot for, but the masses who have not seen the phone want to see it. Verizon’s clip takes cues from The Matrixs vertical lines of code, which restate the Droid Incredible’s stalwart specs. Thanks to highly regarded new smartphones like the Droid Incredible, HTC is expecting total worldwide shipments to increase almost 50% for Q2. More »

From Htcyou: …and it is sound advice because no one, in his/her right mind, on Verizon would choose the Nexus One over the Droid Incredible, unless the former is meaningfully cheaper. In some glad tidings, Verizon is throwing in a free 2Gb microSD card with the Droid Incredible. More »

Mike Tyson was the baddest man on the earth, until he became one of the most shameful men in the world. The HTC Droid Incredible’s reign as the sickest smartphone in America will be short-lived since the Sprint Evo 4G is under two months from hitting the store shelves, but for now, Verizon has the king of phones.

From Htcyou: Google’s Nexus One and Motorola’s Droid have enabled multi-touch for months now, but they fare far worse than the iPhone in this regard. The main reason for the sub-par multi-touch performance of the Nexus One and the Droid is that they both use Synaptics ClearPad 2000 sensors that are not designed for multi-touch. Reviewers are thrilled with the Droid Incredible’s multi-touch accuracy and with good reason –reportedly, HTC has incorporated true multi-touch sensors from Atmel for the Droid Incredible and the incoming Sprint Evo 4G.

From Htcyou: I regret that Mobilecrunch’s video unboxing of the HTC Droid Incredible is not in high-definition, but Greg’s pretty face captured the whole 3:26 clip in focus and under clean lighting despite being shot sans tripod! A win for YouTube! More »

From Htcyou: With a new 2-year contract, no mail-in rebate is required, and Best Buy is taking pre-orders one day earlier than Verizon, which charges $300 before a mandatory rebate. More »

From Htcyou: The Droid Incredible made its video debut back in February, when it was leaked well ahead of its announcement, but that long clip was briskly removed from Photobucket, though not before I saw it. At the 99% Conference in New York, an HTC representative shows us the Droid Incredible live. More »

From Htcyou: With a $100 mail-in rebate, the total for Verizon’s Droid Incredible amounts to an expected $199.99 on a new 2-year agreement. This is an incredibly enticing offer that could lure away consumers from other carriers. More »
