Rarely can I pre-order something. My impatience when it comes to technology products often leads to endless hours in line on launch day, for the simple fact that I can have it in my hand as soon as the cash register closes.
That being said, a shipping glitch in Verizon's internal systems have resulted in some DROID Incredible pre-orderers getting their devices early. Though the glitch has since been plugged, one of the lucky customers took his excitement to YouTube to show off his treasure. Interestingly enough, the box and the phone's splash screen are both labeled "HTC Incredible," and not DROID Incredible. My guess (as is the common consensus between the tech community) is that the DROID name was added late in the game, and will be coming to the next batch of devices.
