Switched to Incredible, switching back to TP2 (for now?)

I've had the HTC Incredible for the past 4 days and yes it is fast, Eclair 2.1 w/ sense is nice (very nice!) BUT...as of right now it cannot:
  • Sync w/ Outlook (including contacts, notes, etc...yeah, it has Back Up Assistant but who cares when you're switching from a TP2!) (correction, avail!!!!!)
  • Edit MS Office docs (not without paying $14.99 for Full ver. of Docs To Go)
  • WiFi share.
  • Swype! (correction, avail)
  • Opera (Webkit is nice though) (correction, Opera Mini avail)
Just to name a few...not to mention...

Can't install/run programs like UConvert, or customize almost ANYTHING, like on WM 6.5, to your liking....I guess I have to be patient, it is "brand new"...I feel like I have an iPhone ....has anyone experienced this feeling? I really got it for the Snapdragon and more RAM...but so far..I think "Desire" is a better name for this phone...you desire it, but it is not quite "incredible". I know things will be better when rooting is available....

For me? I wish Verizon would have copped the HD2 instead....I know WM is on it's way out (?), but until then, I would have preferred the HD2 since I have a Win PC..and I'm use to dealing with Windows glitches/quirkiness.

Who else has switched? What are your thoughts/feelings?


UPDATE:

Thanks EVERYONE for their feedback. I've just had a holy sh*t eureka moment! The HTC Incredible does not come with a CD ROM for installing HTC Sync or a manual for that matter....reason being...it is on the device! Plug the USB into your PC and select "Disk Drive" to access the hard disk on the device...presto! You'll see the HTC Sync exe and the .pdf instruction manual! Install the .exe on your PC, walk through the wizard and all of your contacts are synced! Why didn't they put a note in the box ?! LOL...

Re: Switched to Incredible, switching back to TP2 (for now?)

Sync - It can sync from the tp2, just set up the tp2 to activesync with your google account. Search on google and you can find how to do that.

*EDIT* here is the page to sync with google - http://www.google.com/support/mobile...36&topic=14299

Swype - I would upload the swype apk that i used, but i don't think thats legal.

Internet - It has Firefox & Skyfire as other options for internet browsing.

Personally I feel it is much better than WM6.5, 6.5.X was good, but I'm just loving Android so much more now. And yeah it has just come out, they have already rooted the "Desire", so the root for the Incredible shouldn't be far behind.

Re: Switched to Incredible, switching back to TP2 (for now?)

Re: Switched to Incredible, switching back to TP2 (for now?)

I've just realized the link is for syncing with an exchange server...not to pc....darn....well, HTC SHOULD be releasing HTC Sync for this device in the future....assuming...

...meanwhile...no Fusion Plus...pay for this, pay for that....only if they would release the TP3 with the Snapdragon, 6.5, and a slimmer slideout keyboard design.....

Don't get me wrong, the Incredible is a wonderful tele, but as right now it can't replicate the total functionality of my TP2.

Re: Switched to Incredible, switching back to TP2 (for now?)

I saw HTC has there own HTC sync that syncs Outlook just fine for this phone.

Should have come with the phone.. Should sync with usb just like TP2
