Want a DROID Incredible? Order it from Amazon!

Who wants a Droid Incredible today?  According to Amazon, they actually have some in stock and for only $149 on contract.  So you know, I ran through as much of the ordering process as possible without fully purchasing the device and not once did it mention a shipping delay.  Sweet right?

After months of delays due to shortages in the AMOLED screen technology used on the Incredible, we were starting write off a device that really, can still compete with the best of them.  While it looks like Verizon has delayed shipments of the DI again back to 8/9, you may want to jump on this opportunity in case the Droid X is not your cup of tea.  Who knows how much longer Amazon will be able to keep them around.

And let’s not forget that CyanogenMod 6 is almost out for the DI and brings you some lovely Froyo action that helps it to perform like the top device on the planet.

So run over to Amazon now and get your order on!

Cheers Jonathan!

    No there is no way to get the 1-year contract through Amazon. I just called and was told that the only way to get a 1-year is through Verizon directly.

    I'm five months within my official upgrade period with Verizon. So, when I try to buy on Amazon, it submits my info and denies me the $199 price. Too bad.

    Most of the posts here are about debating phones and not this Amazon angle. KV, is he the only one to confirm that Amazon is in fact shipping DI's ?

    I got mine from the Dell Mobility store for $149 and it came within two days where as Verizon had a 7/24 ship date.

    Now that the X has a locked down Bootloader – no custome ROMs! – maybe the Incredible is a better choice at the moment after all?

    Is there anyway to get a 1 year contract when ordering through Amazon? I was able to do that directly through verizon.com – but can't seem to find a way to do that anywhere else.

    As quickly as phones are evolving, I don't want to be tied to any device or network for 2 years. The 1 year contract price is a decent compromise for me…

    Waiting for something better than the Droid X, I wonder how many people know you can't root it….boo!!

  • KV

    Not sure why more people aren't using Amazon…i got my DI 3 days after i placed my order. They have a good system…highly recommended.

    I'm due for an upgrade, and I don't have any kind of android device.. (EnV2) should I get the incredible or wait for the upcoming phones like the DroidPro?

    • Manny

      If the size of Droid X doesn't bother you, I would recommend the Droid X over the Incredible. To type on the EnV is very easy so keep in mind that the transition to touch screen takes a little bit of work. Swype would make typing on the screen more productive (comes already installed on the X but you can install on the incredible as well).
      If you must have a physical keyboard, I do not recommend the first Motorola Droid. Wait for the Droid 2 that apparently has a better keyboard.
      I have at my home the first Motoroal Droid and the Incredible.
      This is just my opinion :)

    I love my Droid and I've played extensively with a friend's D.I. The X is nice looking and the main feature from both I would enjoy for both business & personal reasons in the video out. I'm a marketer so showing commercials or watching my produced videos on a TV would be nice … but not enough for me to give up my Droid, yet. I've got Sapphire's latest on it and loving my slightly overclocked, Froyo running, Flash playing Droid just fine.

    Droid X in Boston N 42 21.296 W 71 03.058!

    I am still a minority because I am actually waiting fpr the droid 2 to come out. I am not fond of an onscreen keyboard except for swype, which is amazing. I was not fond of the incredible when I played with it instore but like I said I can wait.

    • scuba_koop

      I am with you on the keyboard. My sentiments exactly. I think we are a minority!! I am sure the D2 will be a great phone just like the original is. I think the DX is very cool I just can't part with the keyboard.

      • Manny

        I used to think like you, and I have a Motorola Droid. But in real life, I barely use my keyboard. Looks like the new Droid will have better keyboard, but for me the flat one is just no good. And like Jeremy said, Swype make it very nice…

    Kellex, somethings you just have to keep on the low….I got my Droid(origina)l on Amazon for 19.99 back in April, its 00.1 now….got to love Amazon…they have 50% to 60% markdowns…but lets keep that between me and you….http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-A855-Android-Verizon-Wireless/dp/B002UUTCKC/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&s=wireless&qid=1278782611&sr=8-13

    Verizon site now says 8/9. Glad I got mine launch day.

    • kellex

      Yikes.

  • Tomviren

    That is where I got mine on the 7 of June. By the way there is no sales taxes on the full value of the phone $599 as there would have been if I got it at the Verizon store in California

  • PyRo_DuDe

    Those “First” comments are pointless. On a side-note, I'm assuming this is only for new contracts, right? Not renewals? It'd almost be worth canceling my New Every Two renewal with VZW, ordering through Amazon, and then using the New Every Two discount on another line. But I doubt that'd work…

    • kellex

      New customer price is $149, but $199 on upgrade.

      As a little tip and one that's probably been fixed by now, I was able to upgrade through Amazon to a Blackberry Tour back in October and they failed to notify VZW that I had upgraded so my new every 2 hadn't gone away. And then the Droid 1 came out and I used it then…the rest is history. :)
