Droid Incredible Rides Off Into The Big Red Sunset
It’s a sad day in the smartphone world as it appears that the HTC-made Droid Incredible for Verizon has sadly reached the end of its life (EOL). According to a report from Android Central, Verizon has stopped selling the popular Droid Incredible at its online store and retailers are not going to be receiving new stock.
Verizon’s Droid Incredible first came out all the way back in April of 2010, seems much longer than that, and almost immediately became one of the must have devices on Verizon alongside the Motorola Droid. Even when the Motorola Droid X came out in July, the Droid Incredible’s popularity never waned. And even though it’s EOL, it’s still looking like an upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread is on the way in Q2.
The Droid Incredible was so popular, that Verizon is now going to be putting out a successor sometime in the very near feature, a U.S. version of the HTC Incredible S called the HTC (Droid) Incredible 2.
So, for those that were planning on making the original Incredible their main phone, now is probably the time to look online or head down to the store because there is no telling how long these things will last on shelves.
RIP Droid Incredible, 2010-2011.

I went to the local Verizon store on Saturday specifically to get an HTC Incredible to replace my Blackberry. I had been looking online and thought to order, but instead wanted it “now” so I went to the store. There I was told they “were out” even though they had no less than 4 of them on display. I was of course pitched the Thunderbolt and iPhone in lieu. I left, disgusted at the slippery sales people and figured I’d order it like I’d first thought… but of course the website now said “temporarily out of stock”. LAME, Verizon, really lame. The phone’s barely a year old.
Happy ending, I found the phone on Amazon for $0.01 (with a renewal of my Verizon contract) and the phone arrives today!

I love my Incredible, it’s an amazing phone! I plan on keeping it until a 4G LTE iPhone comes to Verizon.
