When it comes to phones, especially major releases, we are always counting down. Counting down to the next big release. For most, the Droid Incredible by HTC is one of those devices. Speculated for the last few months, and teased with an assortment of screenshots and other leaks, it’s been a long time coming, but the newest (official) Android-based handset is on its way to Verizon Wireless in just a couple of weeks. And, we thought you might like a video.

Seeing a phone in action is one thing, but we know it won’t do much to satiate you. Especially if you’re planning on actually getting the 1GHz Snapdragon powered handset. Of course, if you were waiting for the Nexus One to show up, some would argue that this, the Droid Incredible, would be your better choice. It features the same 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and Android 2.1 goodness, but there are some key differences. Like the inclusion of HTC’s Sense UI and the 8MP camera on the back. All good additions. And thanks to NerdStalker, who caught up with HTC at the 99% conference, we can check out the video below to see the new FriendFeed in action, along with those great weather animations.

And, if you like what you see, then you should pre-order. Best Buy is featuring a pre-order system right now for those that want to pull the trigger. All you need to do is fill out a form when you go into your local store, and hand over a cool $50. They’ll give you a gift card, and that’ll be your ticket to your new phone when it launches April 29th. Keep in mind, though, that if you go through Best Buy you won’t have to deal with any mail-in rebates. So, something to think about. Anyone out there going to pick this beast up?
