ConclusionFrom the initial launch of the Android Operating system on the HTC Desire (known as the T-mobile G1 in America), about 18 months ago, it is apparent that both HTC and Google have come far. Android has become a major player in the mobile phone space, with about 60,000 activations of Android devices per day as of February 2010 according to Google.
In the runup to the release of this phone, Google has announced that it no longer plans to bring the Nexus One to Verizon, and that this is the phone that is taking it’s place in their lineup. After using this phone, it is obvious why Google has made this decision. Building off of the strong foundation that Google and HTC created with the Nexus One, the HTC Droid Incredible is the best Android phone on the market, and one of the best smart phones I have used.
That being said, if you are carrier agnostic, it would be beneficial to wait for the launch of the HTC Evo 4g phone on Sprint this summer. The Evo is poised to take the specs of the Incredible even further, with a 4.3″ LCD and 720p video recording. Along with the 4g data network, it will certainly be a phone to watch. Look for our review coming up this summer.
However, if want to stick with the Verizon Wireless network, then the HTC Droid Incredible the definitive smart phone to buy.
