If I read correctly...2.1 was released for the Moto Milestone (Moto droid) in Bulgaria a number of weeks ago and today in Spain. The thing is, it is a different carrier in a different country for a different manufacturer, so there is no real correlation to that release and a possible release for our update. Verizon is notoriously slow when it comes to updates, frankly they gain no further profit from it so they probably don't really care much. The only REAL information that VZW has released is that it would be Q1 2010, all other information is mere speculation, rumor, or related to other devices. HTC has said that they released the update (a few weeks ago now) to VZW for testing.
If I were a fortune teller (which I am not) I would wear funny clothes and have a funny hat and I would have to tell you that I don't foresee an official 2.1 release for the HTC Droid Incredible any time within the next few months. There is just no real reason for ZVW to rush it and they have a lot of new phones coming out for which they must focus resources.
I keep tight tabs on the update news from many different sources and there has been very little buzz about the Incredible (or Hero) lately. If you are still running 1.5 I would have to say grab a seat and get comfortable...you could be here a while.
Just my opinion of course...update might be tomorrow for all I know.
I'm hoping that it's tomorrow!! haha, i heard today (3/22). I assumed that it wouldnt, but i hoped it would haha. But i'm REALLY hoping that VZW will uphold the 1Q2010 release date. Only time will tell. I'm thinking about geting the leaked 2.1, I was looking at vidoes all weekend on the features and procedures to get it. But I just wanna wait and get it when i'm supposed to, cheesy i know but what can ya do lol.
But if i dont get 2.1 OTA by mid April, here i come Leaked 2.1 haha.
