HTC Incredible delayed...........again

It's another day, another delay for those loyal Verizon fans still waiting on their HTC Incredible phones. HTC's continued troubles getting a hold of the AMOLED screens continues to be the culprit behind the ship date being pushed back further and further. Some have been waiting over a month since the initial shortages in June, and there seems to be no end in sight. The good news? Verizon's statement that customers can switch over to the Droid X which launches next week if they would prefer that phone at no additional cost. At this point, it may be the better option, unless those start getting pushed back as well.
