    Default AMOLED, or SLCD..

    Here's a cool screen shot of what's to come for those who get a new Inc by the end of the month.

    Sending from my phone makes the photo smaller, I can repost later.

    Oooh! Where'd you snap that? Be sure to send it to Kyle or Phil. This is the first "confirmation" that I am aware of that the Dinc will in fact have the SLCD screen. Neither HTC nor Verizon has announced that (HTC only announced for the N1 and Desire -- HTC in fact said in July that they had no plans to put it on the Dinc, as they thought they could keep up with demand using AMOLED).

    Nice find!

    Edit: does that model number say ADR6300VW3?

    So if you would order now you would still probably get the Amoled screen? Just wondering because my upgrade is next Wednesday.

    So is that a good or bad thing-sorry for my ignorance..I'm about to order one-should I do it now or wait? I'm not sure of the difference in the screens.

    SLCD screens perform better in direct sunlight while looking as nice as AMOLED. That's mostly it.

    I don't think LCD looks nearly as nice as AMOLED.
    It's purely a sacrifice of quality for production quantity on HTC's part.

    It's Super LCD, I've seen the new Desire with it and it's definitely not a sacrifice. Just sayin'..

    Yes the SLCD is better in direct sunlight. Image quality wise the average person will not be able to tell the difference side by side. However with that being said the SLCD doesn't have as vibrant of colors when compared side by side. But really I don't think you will see a difference with either one that makes one better than the other.

    You do know you're fired, right?

    Like it's not easy enough for them to find you, but you led them right to you with the last half of your last name showing in the upper left of the pic.

    I give you a week tops.

    +1 for tipping him off. There's still time for him to cover his tracks since no other site seems to have picked up the story.
    -1 for being a d-bag about it.

    I don't understand the motivation behind that post. Give a heads up, unless you're planning to snitch.

    Mike, Dave, you guys are alright..

    Glad I got AMOLED. Droid 2 has SLCD and it sucks compared to AMOLED.

    I interface with my phone 90% inside, and probably 10% outside. The 10% that I'm outside, the screen can be pretty darn hard to see...however the 90% that I'm inside, the screen is gorgeous.

    The other 'con' about AMOLED (battery life) no longer really applies with all the super cool kernels floating around out there.

    Not trying to be a d-bag, honestly trying to let him know whats gonna happen now. And there is no way to cover his tracks- I know what really goes down, and corporate has entire department dedicated to doing exactly this. They have people who patrol these sites every single day to catch people. And besides, the pic is still there. So they have his last name, and his face is on his avatar. That's more than they need.

    Not a snitch, not at all. Just letting you know, start filling out apps..

    Good find. I have a first release phone and the speaker went out. I was wondering what I would get if I swap it out. Looks like they will replace it with the AMOLED if that's what you already have.

    Surprised nobody has linked this yet.

    Spot the difference: HTC Desire's SLCD versus AMOLED -- Engadget

    Engadget's conclusion: pretty close on visuals, but the AMOLED screen is actually easier on the battery (recall, HTC said that SLCD should bring improved power efficiency). Good lord, I can only imagine what that would mean for an SLCD-equipped Dinc!

    If you've been toying with whether you need a warranty replacement, get it started now, folks!

    Wait... So the new boot animation with 2.2 is now going to be shenanigans... AMOLED scrolls across the page... I'm gonna buy a new DINC after the switch and sue Verizon for false advertising...
