Arm your Droid Incredible for battle with VZW’s silicone case

The HTC Incredible is the Droid you’re looking for. Here are my first impressions of Verizon’s new darling…

Let’s start with a list of negatives to get them out of the way. Like every gadget on the market, including the (gasp!) iPhone, the Incredible (“INC”) is not perfect. Here’s a list, in no particular order, of …

HTC Incredible features the best Android multi-touch yet?!

Now that we know the Nexus One will likely never end up on Big Red’s network, there’s really nothing to wait for…

OK. So, this video isn’t exactly new (AndroidCentral posted it about a week ago), but it’s still exciting and impressive. This is especially true for those of us looking to grab the best Android …
