Several weeks ago, Verizon began rolling out an OTA Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update for the HTC Droid Incredible. While many received the update, I never did…and now I finally have some insight into what happened.

Inspired by nature: Protect your Droid Incredible with a shell

Previously, I wrote about how much I liked Verizon’s generic silicone case for the HTC Droid Incredible. I stand by that post, but I’ve also found a worthy replacement – the HTC Droid Incredible Shell Holster Combo.
I’m not one to use a phone holster (more on that later), but the sub-$10 shell/holster combo is a …

Whereas last time proved to be pure BS, this time…the update is for real. Yet, it still seems to be taking VZW what feels like forever to push the over-the-air to Droid Incredibles all across the ol’ U S of A.
So what gives? Well, not much really. The following collection of official VZW Support Tweets …

21 (free) Android apps to maximize your HTC Droid Incredible

The HTC Droid Incredible is a great Android (currently 2.1) device made even better with the inclusion of the HTC Sense interface and its related apps and widgets.

That said, I’ve come across three particularly useful and fun Android apps to make your regular …


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 …
