Although it’s been almost a month since the Droid Incredible made its debut, many people are still waiting for their new phone to arrive amid a plethora of delays.

Verizon’s CEO, Lowell McAdam, has said that the delay is due to higher than expected demand for the device, after being sold out just hours after release on Verizon’s web store.

The main cause of the delay is the AMOLED display, which is produced by Samsung.

Time for another game of ‘Shop job or Shadow: Gizmodo’s received a picture from someone claiming that they found the upcoming Motorola Shadow on the floor at a Verizon corporate gym.

According to the tipster they had enough time to confirm most of the rumored specs of the phone before it was remotely locked down, though suspiciously, they only had enough time to snap one picture.

Engadget notes that the angle of the picture is uncannily similar to that of the leaked ‘Getting Started’ manual that we’ve covered earlier.

LG_Ally Full

Just like most Verizon Android phones, the LG Ally garnered plenty of hype with its advertising campaign – in this case, it was used as a promotional tie-in with Iron Man 2. With only a 600 MHz CPU and 3.2MP camera, it’s a pretty mid-range phone, but you’re also getting Android 2.1 and hardware keyboard, so at $99 it’s not an awful phone.

The phone was set for release on May 20, but now it seems that release has been pushed back.

A user over at Howard Forums has leaked what appears to be a ‘Getting Started’ manual for an as of yet unknown Motorola phone. Rumor has it that this is the Motorola Shadow/MB810, a phone that we’ve seen in random leaks here and there for the last few months.

Apparently it’s an ultra-thin slider, which has some speculating that it will be Verizon’s follow up the original Droid. If this is in fact the MB810, then we know a little bit about the expected specs:

  • 4.3 inch screen
  • HDMI port
  • 8 Megapixel camera
  • 1080P Video Recording
  • 802.11 b/g/n

This info all came via Engadget’s past coverage of the device here and here.

Verizon Officially Reveals LG Ally Price ($100) And Full Details

Yesterday BGR leaked a few documents providing pretty much all the details on the new LG Ally Android phone except its price, and today Verizon filled in the only missing piece of the puzzle in the official LG Ally press release.

Come tomorrow, May 13th, you'll be able to preorder this relatively low-end but still pretty sweet phone for $100 after a $100 rebate on a 2-year contract.

For a budget phone that already runs Android 2.1, has a 600MHz processor, a 3.2" screen, a 3.2MP camera, a full hardware keyboard, 802.11b/g and n support, and a 4GB microSD memory card, $99.99 is not a bad deal at all.

HTC Droid Eris Should Be Getting The Android 2.1 OTA Update Today

It's finally here - today should be the day when Verizon starts rolling out the Android 2.1 OTA (over-the-air) update that we reported on a few days ago.

The update page on Verizon's site, which provides benefits of the new 2.1 OS as well as the update instructions, still mentions "Coming Soon!" as the release date.

That last part, however, apparently means today, May 11th, according to a MobileCrunch tipster who sent in this internal memo screen:

HTC Droid Eris Should Be Getting The Android 2.1 OTA Update Today

We know it says "tentatively scheduled" and Verizon doesn't exactly have the best track record with releasing 2.1 when it says it is, but we have a hunch that it will actually begin on time this time around.

I guess Sprint was feeling a bit lonely: Verizon has recently revealed on their official support site for the Droid Eris that users can expect an update to 2.1 ‘soon’. Unfortunately, they don’t offer a more specific time table, but they do provide documents both detailing the benefits of upgrading as well as instructions on how to do so, which is definitely reassuring.

Reading through the documents provided, it looks like Verizon is going to deliver the update over-the-air, as well as require the user to wipe the device.

You have to hand it to Verizon’s marketing department – out of all of the carriers pushing Android, their ads have been the most compelling.

Verizon continues their Android advertising legacy with a departure from the ‘Droid Does’ campaign in order to use the Iron Man 2 release to pimp their latest Android phone – the LG Ally. What’s that? You haven’t heard of the Ally? What about the LG Aloha?

Amazon HTC Droid Incredible for $99

Wow, what a day. First, Wirefly.com announced a special price that was cheaper than Verizon's or Best Buy's, and now Amazon.com one-upped them and is currently offering the HTC Droid Incredible at $99!

That's $100 cheaper than VZW.com (which is currently sold out) or Best Buy, and comes with a FREE 2-day shipping when purchased with a service plan.

Moreover, Amazon traditionally doesn't charge any tax in most states. We are not sure whether they do on the phones or not so if someone could clarify that in the comments, it would be great.
