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

It's purely a sacrifice of quality for production quantity on HTC's part.
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.
+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.
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.

Mike, Dave, you guys are alright..
Not a snitch, not at all. Just letting you know, start filling out apps..

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!
