Verizon's letter to HTC Droid Incredible buyers offers apology, $25 gift card

48

htc droid incredible

According to a tipster, Verizon is sending out letters to everyone waiting for their HTC Droid Incredible, apologizing for an extra seven-day delay for those who ordered on or before June 28.  The letter goes on to say they will be sending out $25.00 gift cards to all who had to wait as a way to express their thanks for your continued patience.

While it doesn't make the time go by any faster, a few bucks and more importantly the fact that they address and apologize for the issue goes a long way.  I'm sure Verizon wants an Incredible in your hand almost as much as you do.  Follow the link to see the text in it's entirety. Thanks Andrea!

Hands-on with the Sprint Epic 4G

75

Sprint Epic 4G Galaxy S Phone

We saved the best of the Samsung Galaxy S phones for last: the Epic 4G. It's similar to its other Galaxy S cousins, but adds in a horizontally sliding QWERTY keyboard and, yes, WiMAX 4G. The slider did add some thickness - but we're comparing that to the crazy-thing Galaxy phones on the other networks, by its lonesome the Epic 4G doesn't feel all that chunky or heavy. We obviously haven't had a chance to do much with the keyboard, but our first take is we're liking the separation and even the flatness of the keys.

Yeah yeah, talky talky - we make with the pictures after the break!

Update: doesn't really do it justice, but we shot a quick video of the Epic 4G displaying ...video. It's crisp, vibrant, very beautiful. It may not have the pixel density of the iPhone 4, but the color and contrast looks much better to our eyes. It, too, is after the break

Hands-on with the Verizon Fascinate

54

Verizon Fascinate

And here comes the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S, which forever shall be known as the Fascinate. It's going to give the Motorola Droid X a run for its money, no doubt. It's also launching with Android 2.1 but will get a Froyo update sometime later. Hands-on pictures after the break.

Hands-on with the AT&T Captivate

AT&T Captivate

Lo, look forth on the AT&T Captivate -- its version of the Samsung Galaxy S. Just like the other carriers' versions, it's thin, light, and flies, thanks to that 1GHz Hummingbird processor. And that Super AMOLED screen -- gorgeous. We can only hope that AT&T doesn't do its usual job of locking down the phone to the Android Market, but that's hardly Samsung's fault, is it. Peep more hands-on pics after the break.

Gaming on the Sprint Epic 4G

Asphalt on the Sprint Epic 4G

The Sprint Epic 4G brings a horizontal keyboard, and it brings some monster gaming power (as do all the other versions of the Galaxy S, of course). After the break, we take a look at the Asphalt racing game on the Epic 4G, which sports a six-axis gyroscope, which you can see in action.

T-Mobile Vibrant hands-on

31

T-Mobile Vibrant

T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S is known as the Vibrant, and it's as slim and sleek as its cousins. Same 1GHz Hummingbird processor, same 4-inch Super AMOLED display. T-Mo just had to show us how Avatar looks on the phone, and while it's not quite the same as in the theater, it's still pretty damn good for a 4-inch smartphone. Check it out after the break.

Update: hands-on photos!

HTC Evo OTA back in action

34

evo ota update round 2

It looks like Sprint and HTC have re-released the OTA update for the Evo 4g.  We don't have any clues about what might have went wrong, but considering the reports of better speed and battery life from folks who successfully updated yesterday, we're glad it's back -- provided that little bricking thing has been fixed.

Today's update is a bit larger (~30MB vs. ~21MB for yesterdays) and we're seeing success from the forums.  We're in the process of rolling things back and trying it out ourselves (good luck Adam!), we'll update when and if anything happens -- good or bad.

To make things even more clear, Phil just got word back from HTC:

  • The OTA is officially back, and should be ready and working well.
  • If you updated yesterday, none of this applies to you, you're good to go and already updated.
  • No official word about what's going to happen with bricked devices, but HTC is aware and will take care of things ASAP.

29

htc droid incredible

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

samsung intercept

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 frf85b froyo

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]
