    Where is the update for the original Incredible?!

    People are saying the weak speakerphone has been drastically improved, as well. I forgot to test it on my family member's phone before I gave it back to her, but I am sure she'll be glad the speakers are louder, now.

    @ Jake - the OS looks almost exactly the same as it did with Froyo. I doubt we'll see much of interest whenever the DInc updates.
