Updated-Rumor: HTC Incredible Replacing Droid Eris At Verizon Wireless-Eris End Of Life Is April 1st
Update: I have never seen people get so bent out of shape over a rumor. Truly amazes me. I want to clarify, since some people seem to not understand, that end-of-life simply means that Verizon will no longer be placing orders for the Eris. It does not mean that come April 1st the Eris will be pulled off of shelves and no longer available, other carriers handle end-of-life differently but this is how Verizon handles it. If there is stock in the warehouse it will still be on shelves. Also, when I say “Incredible is expected to launch around that same date” that doesn’t mean before the end of March as some other sites have decided to put it. That means, it will launch around April 1st. Enough said.
We just got word from a trusted source that the HTC Incredible will be replacing the Droid Eris at Verizon Wireless. The Eris will be end of life on April 1st. With the Eris going end of life on the 1st and information from our source the Incredible is expected to launch around that same date. Another interesting thing our source told us was that Verizon is viewing the Incredible as their version of the Nexus One. I will be the first to admit I was wrong with expecting Verizon to have Nexus One’s in store, at least at a display level. My source says not to count on it, the Incredible is what they will push in store. Great news for Android fans on Verizon!
