Ouch...this place is lonely.

Well, I pre-ordered mine last night for $169.99 due to new every two. Now the very tough "waiting" period begins.

/waits

Is it here yet? Gah, I want my toy now! I also want this thing to have a 1600Mah battery instead of the crap they stuck in there. We're going to have to be very careful about how we abuse this thing if we're gonna get through the day guys. Perhaps it's time to finally start charging 2x per day...

The other question that I've yet to see addressed in reviews relates to the actual viewable screen width. If you compare the DROID w/ the Nexus One on these very forums, it's blatantly obvious how narrow and uncomfortably squished everything looks on the DROID. Despite being 3.7" screens, the Nexus One has more width. I would like to know how the Incredible fares against the N1 as the pictures make it seem a little smaller, though not quite as anemic as the DROID. Guess I'll find out soon.

I'm also glad to hear about the new touch sensor and improved (read actually audible outside a pocket) speaker. My friend's N1 can't even be heard unless he's got it out. I'd miss calls all day long w/ that thing. Another solid improvement seems to be the soft buttons @ the bottom. IIRC, even the Eris was a little funny about those.

Yea, this place is empty hopefully it will be more active once the phone drops... I haven't pre-ordered mine I'm just going to the store on the 29th. The wait is killing me, I skipped the droid so I've been waiting since January. Are you getting a 2yr Contract or a 1. I'm going with a one year contract so that I have the ability to upgrade sooner because these new Android smart-phones are coming out every couple of months....

The battery life is the only bad thing about this phone really... its got about 5hrs of talk time and roughly 100hrs of standby. I'm hoping Seido comes out with a 1750Mah battery like they have for the Eris. I believe the Incredible and the Eris share the same battery. I'm hoping to snag a Case Mate Tough Case. They say they're working on one.

I was going to go w/ the 1 yr, but figured it doesn't really matter. I'm going to be w/ VZW for some time, so I can either go:

Buy 2yr price now, @ 1yr mark get Nexus 2, Incredibler, etc for 1yr price.

...OR...

Buy 1yr price now, @ 1yr mark get Nexus 2, Incredibler, etc for 2yr price.

So in the end, it's the same. I just had them add the phone to my bill, so it's super convenient. And ordering online gets by that pesky rebate. I just have to wait until I get home from work on the 29th to play is all.

That case looks super high quality. Normally, I'm not a fan of cases, but this thing's going to be so thin, I might be alright w/ it. I've recently acquired a Zune HD, and I much prefer it w/ the DLO HipCase than wo/.

I've been doing my best to avoid HoFo, but the dark side's caving in and I think I might need something to keep the feeding frenzy alive anyway. Time to dive in I guess...

That high gloss silicon case looks nice. There's pics of it in the HoFo thread and some press shots in the accessory guide as well as the 2000ish Mah battery. I wonder how "extended" it will make the backplate.

I don't want an extended back so I'm hoping that someone comes out with a battery that fits inside the stock backplate
