maybe the surprise is that the incredible is the cdma nexus one for verizon and will be sold in stores with the option to put htc sense ui on it. doubt it but that would be weird. i feel like they will come out the same time and the surprise will most likely be a lower price and subsidized with a family plan or sold in stores. or maybe there is no surprise.
If they come out the same day I'll be another week trying to decide which one I'd rather have!
the only reason i said that is because i could be wrong but don't remember seeing the htc incredible pass through fcc. it might have but i don't remember seeing it. also they said the nexus one is a series of phones so it doesn't have to be like the other ones. it's unlikely but i'm just bored.
Or you may be absolutly right. Car manufacturers have been doing that very thing for years (putting multiple bodies on the same frame and naming each one different even though essentially they're the same thing)
you'd really think there would be some advertising though. wasn't the droid advertised like a month in advance? maybe not, don't really remember all that well cause i had just gotten my shiny tp2 at the time and didn't care about android. ah but look where i am now, ditched winmo for something better, haha
There are two separate FCC filings for the two phones.
HTC Incredible has passed through FCC, that is how we found out about the 1300mah battery.
I highly doubt the HTC Incredible is the VZW Nexus One now. I don't think google would sell all Nexus One's and then randomly change to saying, oh yea, we're selling the HTC Incredible for VZW instead of a Nexus One.
