    No DROID (yet hopefully)... its not announced for the states which means no VZW as of right now. Thus, no DROID.

    I doubt it also because the phone is currently GSM not CDMA as required for Verizon.

    This phone is going to VZW. Original Incredible also had GSM variant for European carriers but CDMA only in the US. It should be DROID... wasn't the original a DROID phone?

    My bet goes that this will be called Droid Incredible 2 on VZW

    so this could be an incredibly stupid question, but what would be the difference if it had Droid branding or not? I thought the fact that it was an android os phone made it a droid. Is there something else that goes along with that would make branding it a droid special? Sorry I don't know this but I still have a BB and am looking forward to this phone to be my escape

    @ Regulator

    The difference is that Droid is a brand that Verizon owns. A droid phone will have all the applications/themes/swithing on animation etc. that Verizon would normally install on an Android device.

    I must say that I am surprised that the Thunderbolt was not called Droid Thunderbolt. Anyone knows the answer?

    I think its safe to half way assume that if a phone is branded "Droid" it also means that VZW will keep an eye on it. It has appeared that Droids to this point have been giving more updates and kept up to date.

    Thanks for the help. I wasn't sure if it made much of a difference or if it was extra junk they preloaded on your phone

    Droid branded phones wont have Bing. Dunno if ThunderBolt has Bing though (I don't think so)

    Nope. It's not a DROID device. It's just the HTC Incredible S. Although, the Verizon version is (DROID Incredible 2)
