HTC's Droid Incredible OS: Google Android Price: $299 with two-year contract, $199 after mail-in rebate
The Incredible was one of Verizon's biggest swipes at the iPhone this year and may have taken a contest against an iPhone 3GS. It has a tougher time stacking up to the iPhone 4, though. Its 3.7-inch screen is slightly larger, but is a lot less clear than the Retina display. Android 2.2 updates made it Flash compatible and capable of serving as a Wi-Fi hotspot and recording 720p HD video, and its MicroSD slot gives it up to 32 gigabytes more memory, but the lack of a front-facing camera and a more than 130,000-app deficit in the Android store put it at a disadvantage. An updated Incredible is rumored for this quarter, but with a Verizon iPhone possibly in the offing, the new Incredible's going to live up to its name against Apple.
