Following in the footsteps of Google, Adobe is giving away free Android phones to its employees. And before you all rush to work for Adobe, remember that Flash is coming to Android in 2.2 Froyo. Adobe needs its employees to be familiar with Flash on Android and there's just no better way to do that than to give them Android devices on which to develop. After all, Adobe doesn't want their employees to use that other phone. The device that Adobe will be giving away isn't known yet but it's probably some combination of Nexus One, Droid, or Droid Incredible. If they give away the Evo, well, then you can rush to work for Adobe. [cnet]
Hey everybody! This week we're gonna go back to basics and show our support to those who switched over to Android by picking up the HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon. Now I know a lot of this is common knowledge to you salty Android vetrans, but think back to the first time you put your mitts on a G1 or the Motorola Droid. Hopefully, there was someone around to help you get acclimated and into the swing of all things Android. If not, then you know exactly why we do what we do here at Android Central.
So welcome newcomers, kick back and have a look to see just what you got yourself into, and I'll bet you feel even better about your choice when we're finished.
This blurry little picture of the Sprint HTC Evo 4G, allegedly in a Sprint store in Central Florida, means one of two things: Either we're still hurting from last night, or the Evo 4G's actually made its way into a Sprint store. OK, both are probably true. Question is, what's it doing there? We're only about a week away from Sprint's Evo 4G event in NYC. That doesn't necessarily mean it'll be available immediately after. But now that Apple has announced the date for WWDC (where we all expect a new, next-gen iPhone), we're betting Sprint wants to get the Evo 4G out the door just as quickly as possible. Stand by.

Looks like there's pretty good demand for the Verizon HTC Droid Incredible. Big Red's website now lists the Android smartphone as "shipping by May 14." That could mean anytime before that, we guess, but we've already seen that date pushed back a couple of times.
If you're going to get an Incredible this weekend, chime in and let us know where you found yours.
This is it, folks, the final batch of entries. And we ended up with 40 submissions. Suffice it to say, you all rock. Here's where we go from here. With so many entries, we're going to have to pare things down a bit, and then we'll turn it over to you guys and gals to vote. Stay tuned for that. And now, after the break, the final entries. And to see all the other entries, hit the links below.
It's also noted that both updates will not be over-the-air due to their size (80MB for the Moment and 117MB for the Hero), because Sprint isn't able to handle the hosting requirements (either Google or the manufacturers will have to get that done), and that more than 90 percent of Moments out there don't have software that can handle an OTA update. Boo, indeed.
Anyhoo, we'll see if the Moment update makes it out tonight -- we're not betting on it -- and hold out hope for more news next week. [XDA Developers] Thanks, Adam!
