  1. When you wrote the Droid X has a keyboard and the Incredible doesn't, did you mean a Swype keyboard? Neither phones have a physical keyboard.

    • Whoops, that was a major mistake. It has been corrected. That's what happens when the structure for a table is copied for a Droid by Motorola vs. Droid Incredible comparison while fighting a cold.

      We're apologize about the error. Thank you for your eagle eye. We've hired a new proof reader and fact checker, who will begin work shortly.

  2. i am a vz customer who ordered an incredible and ended up switching.

    the whole process was a pain in the a$$ with everyone telling me different things. basically i canceled my incredible before it shipped and i have to go to the store july 15th for the x.

    however my incredible mysteriously showed up at my door so i had to not except the package... still waiting for july 15th. i just hope they dont sell out so soon
