I too was a bit taken back by the "DROID Incredible" name but it does make sense for VZ.
They have spent a MASSIVE amount of Marketing dollars on the "droid does" campaign and lets be honest...most people couldn't tell you who makes the Droid, simply that it is a Droid. By lumping the HTC in under the Droid umbrella, Verizon can continue to capitalize on the momentum that the Droid marketing is gaining.

If i had to guess, i would say because they paid alot of money to Lucas Arts to use the Droid name on there devices

on top of that, they make it stand out from other carriers using the "Droid Does" or "Droid (name)" use
so far the only phone on VZ with Android to have the "with Google" branding is the Droid, which makes this phone a true google android experience, so another reason for "the next chapter in the Droid saga" is also being used
and another reason why i think its the successor to the Moto Droid

and if you look at the unique names we have in todays marketplace that stand out, for example, the Wii everyone made fun of it then it stuck
when iPod was first announced no one knew it would be a hit, now its got its own designation in stores ipod/mp3 not going by MP3 which is why customers would always ask "whats the difference between and iPod and an MP3 player?"

also another reason for the Droid name and the increased marketing over what they did for Eris is because this phone is truly the successor to the current Droid throne on VZ which is the Moto Droid, look at the marketing campaign thats being used on the website then rewind back to when Eris came out, big difference huh? I will miss the QWERTY from my TP2 but after seeing the search by Voice and landscape keyboard on screen, i'm thinking i will adapt to it

now we just need to get this thing rooted and ROM's made for it! :)
then i can start making my themes for Sense 2.1 :)

very good points as well. i guess it just sounds odd since we have simply called it the incredible for the past few months. but then again it wasn't a huge surprise verizon carried that tagging along.

i really enjoyed your work for the tp2. i parted ways with winmo though (my tp2) and will be getting the incredible when it hits. i look forward to seeing what you bring to the android themeing scene.

I switched back on my old LG Voyager so i can get the Incredible lol (don't want to pay for 2 data plans)

anywho, yeah, my last project for the TP2 will be the dialer i'm helping to make. I'm working with one of the PPC members to port the Devotion dialer to the TP2, and its almost done, so its good timing.

I will be keeping my TP2 since i can switch back and forth when i want to get into some TP2 action again lol it keeps it from getting boring when you can customize your interface's look

i'm hoping that once the Incredible is rooted i can bring my themes to it as well. if not an entire theme, a flip clock theme or something

this will be my first android handset, i didn't like the Droid, the keyboard looked and felt cheap, didn't care for the screen quality and the fact its motorola and not HTC yeah.... i'll stop right there lol

the TP2 has to be the best phone i've ever had so far and the Incredible will take that throne away from it when i get it most likely

here's a couple of morsels to chew on until we get our "Bravo" 's
