Does anyone know what screen they use in the incredible is it the synaptic clearpad 2000? Or do you think they are using the clearpad 3000 or something else. I believe the nexus one uses the 2000 which is the reason they have all the multi-touch problems. I wanted to know if the incredible upgraded to the 3000 or something equally as good because these screens are much better and that would be a big selling point

Ya i agree too. The screen is the main thing I am thinking about. I am using my lg dare right now and it is a total nightmare. I cant calibrate it anymore and it decides to change calibration whenever it wants so its impossible for me to type or use.
I have heard issues about the clearpad 2000 which i believe is what the N1 uses so if the incredible is upgraded i believe this would be a winner for me. Synaptic has a cool video that shows how much better the clearpad 3000 is with multitouch.

On the topic of screen, I'm less concerned about the multitouch issues (which don't seem to be that big a deal for the average non-gaming user like myself), and more concerned about the screen outdoors issue. Since it's AMOLED like the N1's, I'm guessing we can expect the same washed out appearance reported by N1 users who go outside? I think I'm willing to look past it (I need a new damn phone already!) but it would be nice to know.

Well there isn't a huge difference. Ya the clearpad 3000 is much better for multi-touch so it would be nice to at least have to most advanced screen in there. Since it is AMOLED then the screen will most likely look the same outside. I have heard different reports that some people can see outside fine with the screen while others say they can't. I wish it was the super AMOLED screen like in the Galaxy S because I am pretty sure that doesn't get washed out at all and looks great. Plus it uses somewhere around 30% less battery (guessing on what I previously heard).

amoled will be a bit washed out, but upping the brightness helps.
i haven't seen the N1's screen in person, but my zune hd has an oled screen as well, and on max brightness (there's only three levels on it) it does okay in sunlight.
in the shade/darkness though, it looks 10000 times nicer than a lcd.
Ya it is going to suck that it isn't using the super AMOLED screen. I wish it was. That is why I am going to wait and see what it up with the nexus one for a bit. But according to the video androidcentral just posted it looks like it is using the synaptic clearpad 3000. There are no problems with multitouch at all.

Is the screen the same as the Nexus One with the lower resolution? The way the pixels are laid out actually reduces the resolution and it isn't a true 800x480. Text tends to be a little pixellated. If this is the case, I'll probably keep my Droid for now.

Ya the Atmel mxt224 seems like a very good chip for touch screens. Their website says they are very programmable and I think this is one reason why the multitouch is so much better. Their site says that it is very good for capacitive touch screens. So i have a feeling the INC is combined with this new chip and the upgraded screen.
Ya it is the same screen the AMOLED so it is going to look washed out.
The multitouch looks great. I still have to hold out for the N1 to see what the news is with it.

So there you go, set your Incredible's brightness to auto, no more outside issues to worry about.
