If you didn't pre-order the HTC DROID Incredible, and you're not one of the lucky who managed to purchase the phone the day it came out, chances are you can't get one now, nor will you be able to until some time around June 4th. Verizon sold 100,000 DROID Incredibles just two days into the launch of the device and it has been difficult to get a hold of one ever since.
You would think this is something that would have been anticipated and better planned for considering sales of the Motorola DROID as well as the success of the Incredible's sibling the HTC HD2. However, it appears that the problem lies within a shortage of parts for the device which has delayed production, thereby delaying delivery of the devices to stores. According to MSNBC, Lowell McAdam, CEO of Verizon, said that "Verizon is unable to keep up with strong demand for the Droid Incredible smartphone from HTC, due in part to component shortages such as the advanced screens made by Samsung Electronics."
Until the shortage issue can be worked out, it looks like VZW will be focusing on online sales, presumably due to the further reach of the internet. So, if you really want a DROID Incredible (and if you do, I can't blame you) you should probably get to ordering one soon to secure your spot in line and make sure you don't have to wait until the next shipment. Considering that you'll likely receive it on the 4th of June, however, I've heard you can get another CDMA HTC device on another network that very same day. Perhaps you should consider that?
If you had to choose between the EVO 4G and the DROID Incredible, knowing you could have either one on the same day, which would you choose? Let us know in the comments below!
