WordWise: The best Scrabble-like app in the Android Market

Update: In light of recent changes to WordWise, my new favorite Scrabble-like app is definitely Wordfeud.

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

Let’s be honest. The HTC Droid Incredible is, well, pretty incredible. It’s quick as a whip, has a beautiful, highly sensitive touch display, and it takes pretty solid photos, among other things. It is also not cheap.

Although you can grab an Incredible (whenever they become available again – currently VZW’s site says June 4) for …
