    Only one small spelling error on Page two spelling Incredible, but overall a very professional and complete coverage of the Incredible.

    How the flash works on said device will either prove or disprove Steven Job's comments about Flash.

    FABULOUS review Ed. I enjoyed it immensely. This really seems like a 'contendah.'

    I asked this in another thread and perhaps it's too narrow and too selfish a request; but do you think you could get a bit more detail on the audio and video formats it handles? I've noticed some inconsistencies on various sites about this. And no one ever seems to specify if WMA Lossless is included within the WMA format (it isn't always). And oddly, for a Google-related device, it doesn't support the open FLAC standard.

    Also, just as a footnote, Fortune already reported that Amazon is offering this phone for $149!

    Oops, this review was accidentally mis-credited for a time. It was actually written by Jen Edwards.

    A small note: this deal is only for people who are switching to Verizon.

    Nice review. It sounds pretty much like a Nexus One with a better camera.

    It's nice to see that Verizon is picking up this technology. It can only mean a larger app market for all of us Android users.

    I agree about the convenience of Google Apps. Once I was able to import my Palm contacts and calendar, my phone picked it up and now, for the first time, all of my data is in my phone, automatically synchronized with a central web location, for free.

    Jen,

    4 days on one charge? That is very unusual. Most people over the android forums are getting less than 2 days with moderate use and many people are getting less than 1 day. I got 34 hours on a charge with moderate use (down to 10%). Could you give a few more details on use during those days? How much awake time (in settings>about phone>battery)? Any chance to get summary of battery use (in settings>about phone>battery>battery use)? Did you turn off 3G when not using internet?

    Thanks for the great review. Very well written and I agree with most your points. I'm loving the phone as well.

    I'm sorry, the loaner unit has already been sent back to Verizon, and I didn't read your message in time.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by the battery life on the Incredible--I wouldn't leave my charger at home before a business trip, but I also wouldn't panic if I forgot to charge the phone at night.
