This has long been rumored, but many are suggesting that it has now been confirmed that the original Motorola Droid from Verizon and the recently launched Sprint HTC Evo 4G will be the first two to receive the over the air update.
All the recent press has been about the big iPhone 4 and iOS 4 launches, both occurring this week, however the most recent member of the Motorola Droid family will not be ignored. On Wednesday, Verizon, Google, Motorola, Adobe and others got together to announce the upcoming Motorola Droid X.
Android phones are very popular and it seems like carriers are having difficulty keeping them on the shelves. The last two major Android releases have been consistently out-of-stock since their release and it is unclear when we’ll see appropriate quantities necessary to meet current demand.
The other day, we reported that Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G sold out only days after its initial release to the public. The device, according to Sprint, set new release sales records in the first full day it was available.

Yesterday we wrote about the strong possibility of seeing the HTC Incredible at Verizon in late April. Today it is official. Incredible is the newest member of the Android family made by HTC. It is very similar to the popular Google Nexus One phone released to T-Mobile in January, but the Incredible comes complete with HTC’s Sense UI. Sense is a user interfaced design to personalize the way you use the phone. Droid Incredible, as it will be dubbed at Verizon, comes with an 8 mega pixel camera, a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, and running on Android 2.1. The release of this phone is highly anticipated, especially on the Verizon network where Android phones experience good success due to the quality of the network.
Wednesday, April 14th, Verizon Wireless indicated that the HTC Incredible would be joining their current offering of phones on April 29th. Apparently, this notification was not done intentionally when they displayed the following page on their web site:
Within a short time of having originally displayed the page, it was taken down and password protected. One can only assume that this page was put together to be displayed after some type of announcement to the public that they would be carrying the phone. This announcement has not happened yet, but this “error” with their web site gives us enough information for us to come to some pretty safe conclusions.
