HTC, Verizon

HTC Incredible is now the Droid Incredible, HTC Desire heading to US Cellular. Which will you get?

The HTC Incredible has gone as far as one phone can go without being official until today, when Verizon put up a coming soon page and confirmed the phone will launch April 29th. The coming soon page is momentarily blocking access, but that’s of no consequence. We already know that Verizon will carry the Incredible and likely release it at the end of month.

Meanwhile, the HTC Desire slipped into a rebate form for U.S. Cellular before the company even displayed any signal it was carrying the phone. I still consider this a rumor because we have seen typos or mislabeled text entered on company documents before, but its interesting that a smaller carrier would carry this phone while all of the Big Four continue to ignore it.

What I’d like to know is who among you will buy the Droid Incredible or HTC Desire on U.S. Cellular? There are plenty of people hesitant to switch for fear of waiting for future updates of Android, Verizon’s heavy costs/U.S. Cellular’s lower status, or simply holding out for something new. Who is going to take the plunge and get either phone?
