    just curious, why is there more discussion about possibly considering the HTC incredible over the tour2/bold than there is discussion about the nexus one when it comes? ive been waiting on the 9650 a while now but if anything draws me away it will be the nexus.
    The Incredible appears to basically be an updated Nexus One with a downclocked processor to conserve battery life, an 8 megapixel camera, and, the big one, an optical trackpad instead of a trackball (where have we heard that last one before?).

    Sounds like a winning combination then on the Incredible. I am still waiting on the Tour 2, but it is sounding less and less impressive, especially when you compare it next to the Incredible. Anyone know which Verizon will likely carry first?

    Last week, the rumor was that the Incredible would hit Verizon in about two weeks, but then VZW didn't announce it at the CTIA as expected, so those rumors turned to smoke. At this point, the best guess I've seen is early summer for the Incredible, and the best guess I've come across for the 9650 is between now and never.

    Oh, forgot to add, with the iPhone now supposedly coming to Verizon sometime in the summer, I think both of these will be pushed out sooner rather than later.

    Agree with you on that, though don't think I would want an iPhone.

    read about the iphone possibly coming to VZW in the summer. i also read that Apple's partner for the CDMA device isn't scheduled to start manufacturing them until september. regardless of when/if it comes to VZW, i'm with tourboy and don't think i'd get it.

    Rumors may be just that. AT&T is negotiating with Apple to extend their exclusive right to the iPhone. I suspect their recent expansion of their network is designed to make Apple happy and will probably result in an extension of the contract.

    That's fine with me, I don't have any desire for an iPhone.

    9650 Bold update: Part of reason for the changes is to support an OS 6.0 release later in the year. Also it will come in White later.

    Simple question: Should I get the Nexus One when it comes out on VZW, or wait for the 9650?

    He did previously. He said a few weeks ago that the Bold 9650 is slated for a June roll out. I'll see if I can find exactly what he said.

    WhiteBerry Bold anyone?

    Now will the "White" model have a faux white pleather battery door cover?

    Think it will be before June, but if Verizon gets the HTC Incredible before then, I might just be going the HTC route.

    I wouldn't expect 6.0 out the door given 5.0 for the 9630 is just being released this week.
