Many blogs and websites have reported over the past several days that an OTA update was coming for the Droid Incredible which included the following updates:
- 720p video recording (sweeeeeeet!)
- Verizon’s mobile hotspot app
- Integrated Skype app
- Cool new “Droid” boot animation
For the record, I’ve had my Incredible since the beginning of May and have seen only one minor update (update 1) since then. Apparently, this most recent OTA was a "rolling" update and was supposed to hit Incredible owners over the last week or so.

If you haven’t yet received your OTA update, I may have a possible reason why. According to BGR, Verizon has decided to forgo the minor OTA update and, instead, will "one up" itself by rolling it out as a complete Android 2.2 "Froyo" update for all Incredible users by the end of July/beginning of August.
Now, if this is truly the case, I’ll be jumping up and down screaming the praises of Android, HTC, and Verizon from the rooftops. Well, maybe that’s an exaggeration. But, then again, maybe it’s not.
Here is the final rundown of what the rumored July/August update should bring:
- 3G Mobile Hot Spot
- HTC Widget: Email
- HTC Widget: News
- 720p video recording with always-on recording light
- EAS Updates
- Amazon MP3
- Mobile hotspot
- And so much more
