Verizon gives new shipping date for HTC Droid Incredible

29

Still waiting for your HTC Droid Incredible to ship? (No, Verizon isn't dropping the DInc!) It seems like they have the screen availability issues under control and will start shipping out some more units shortly.  If you order today, your phone should ship be July 27. 

Hopefully the back orders are shipping soon, I know a lot of you guys are itching to get one of the hottest phones of the year in your hands, and so are we.  If you've heard any good news from Big Red about your order, holler out, and if you've been holding out until more stock arrives jump on it now while you still can.  [Verizon]

Samsung SPH-M910 (Intercept) photos leaked

11

Here's a few pictures of the Samsung Intercept (SPH-M910), another new Sammy to be released on the Sprint network (rumors say July 11).  Supposedly the replacement for the Samsung Moment, and after seeing these pics I have to agree. Should be shipping with Eclair (Android 2.1) and a 3.2 inch touchscreen, but not many of the other details can be confirmed.  We should know more after tonight's big Samsung event in New York, which we're covering live tonight at 6 PM EST.

What we can be sure of, is that the 4 row QWERTY with trackpad should appeal to people who need the physical keys, but need something a little smaller than the new breed of 4 inch plus superphones.  And it comes in pink.  Hit the break to see another pic showing a bit better detail of the QWERTY.

Motorola Droid Froyo build FRF84B leaked

38

Droid users you've got another Froyo build to play with -- FRF84B.  (Eyes playing tricks on me.  Thanks for the correction darkcomartist.)  Yes, that number should look familiar, as it's the same build that was called the final for the Nexus One.  We have no idea if this will be the final version from Motorola, but if you've been unofficially beta testing Android 2.2 on your Droid, you might want to have a look.

Get it HERE .  You'll have to be rooted, flash the file from recovery.  Then shout out in the comments and in the forums and let us know the good and the bad.  [DroidLife]

Motorola Charm may be T-Mobile Basil

6

Looks like the Motorola Charm -- that square-faced QWERTY fellow -- indeed is going to T-Mobile, and it's likely getting a name change to the Basil. Not sure if that's going to make its small stature and penchant for Motoblur any more palatable, but at least the stars are starting to align. [TmoNews]
