I'm so sorry Blackberry. We had a good run, but it's over. I've met somebody new and it's true love. So I'm breaking up with you. Truth be told, I was growing bored with your limitations and was looking for something better for a while now. I was jealous of my friends who had iPhones and 'apps' but I just couldn't switch to AT&T. My carrier of choice is Verizon (let's face it, AT&T coverage in NYC is sub-par). Then I started seeing ads for the HTC Droid Incredible and well, I became fixated. So I cheated. Now there is no turning back. I'm leaving you. So don't even try to win me back. I'm never coming back.
Oh how I love my new Droid, and the more I learn about it, the deeper I fall. It blazes across the digital universe. It snaps fantastic 8-megapixel photos which I can instantly zip to my Facebook friends and Twitter followers. I can read books now that I have dowloaded the Kindle app and I play Angry Birds while I'm on the subway. I have even taken some amazing videos and can't wait to catch a NYC crime in action (OK, maybe not). Best of all, the keyboard is so easy to type on and is so intuitive, my thumbs no longer hurt from trying to type on your tiny keys. So you see, the name of this phone pretty much says it all. Hello lover!
Here are some details about the HTC Droid Incredible should you want to cheat on your BlackBerry or iPhone. I promise you will not be sorry.
- Detailed focus. With eye-popping 8-megapixel resolution and built-in editing, it’s not a camera phone. It’s an amazing camera that happens to be an amazing phone.
- Built for speed. HTC designers found inspiration for the Droid Incredible by HTC in a jet-black Italian sports car. With a blazing-fast 1GHz Snapdragon™ processor, it seems our hardware engineers did, too.
- Instant sharing. Capture the moment and post it instantly on Facebook®, Flickr®, or Picasa™. Mail it, message it, or send a peep to all your peeps.
- Instant friends. With the Friend Stream app, you always know what’s going on on Facebook and Twitter™, without actually going on Facebook and Twitter.
- Instant apps. The Android™ OS with HTC Sense™ delivers easy access to thousands of apps and games available at the Android Market™.
