Re: uh oh.. we have a war..

Of the two, which one would be best to just throw the money down to buy and use for like an e-reader and access to developing android apps?

My specific question being, taking the coverage and phone portion out of the conversation which one is the absolute better device? As I am....unwilling to lose a SERO account I am thinking of doing such a thing.

This is what pains me to be a Sprint customer, the waiting game. Maybe Sprints business customers and their no need for smartphones drive the "I Dont care" attitude. Thats too bad because im sure the rest of us also help the bottom line and want EVO!
If Sprint were smart and their people were thinking, this phone would be in the FCC and stamped and shipped in May. As close to the Incred launch as possible and well before the Iphone, but yeah, I know, wishful thinking.

same processors and basic structure but their not completely the same.

4.3 in screen vs 3.7
3g/4g vs just 3g
1024 rom vs 512 rom
HDMI, 720p camera 8mp camera + second one for video conferencing vs just an 8mp camera
fm radio vs none
1500 mah batter out of box vs 1300 mah
no secondary rom but comes with 8gig microsd card vs 8gig built in with micro sd card support of up to 24 gig
voice and data in release or future release (using 4g for data) vs one at a time

not enough of the same for alot of people to go "hmmm incredible is here but evo isnt" I know quit a few AT&T customers and US Cellular customers around here waiting for the release.. even a few Verizon customers cause Verizon service SUCKS in Oklahoma.

The EVO may not be fully functional or semi buggy.. remember this is the first wimax phone and sprint is putting a lot of advertising and effort on it..they can't afford the phone to have issues.

There is nothing identical about the Verizon phone. Have you seen this gimped garbage? No 4G of course, no second camera, much lower memory and smaller screen. Verizon has shown their skills at gimping again...

How did Verizon gimp it again?

no 4g = cause they don't have a 4g network

no second camera = thats cause its CDMA..

much lower memory = not really its mostly rom thats lower but you have a 2ndary 8gb rom

smaller screen = yes but its AMOLED screen..plus screen size boils down to preference.

Just to note the incredible is not the supersonic/evo >.>..its closer to the Desire aka Nexus One

Re: uh oh.. we have a war..

I'm sure Sprint knew about this, which is probably why they're so heavily advertising the Evo. Anyone who knows anything about smartphones is going to know that the Evo is far superior.

Anyway, I think Sprint is doing the right thing. They want to make sure everything works well before they release this device. It's revolutionary and does a lot of things, and I'm sure they don't want to risk releasing something so new without making sure it has all the features that people want (COUGH iphone 2G).

Re: uh oh.. we have a war..

Not the same phone.

The Incredible is more of a Nexus One with Sense.

The Evo has a much larger screen, 4G, 720p output via HDMI, and a front-facing camera.
