Yesterday we learned of the HTC Incredible target launch date (April 29th) and today we have the full spec list thanks to a leaked manual. Phandroid has posted the entire 205 page user manual that included the missing details we have been waiting on. The official specs are not as incredible as some of the rumors we posted, but this device matches up nicely with the current crop of high-end Android phones.
Based on the CPU, RAM and ROM, the Incredible closely resembles the HTC Desire and Nexus One. All three phones have a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 512 MB ROM, and 512-576 MB RAM.
Verizon still plans to support Google’s Nexus One, but it looks like the Incredible will ship first at this point. Many customers were waiting to purchase whatever phone came out first, but there might be a few hold outs for the Nexus One. The major difference between the two phones is software. The Incredible features Android 2.1 with HTC’s Sense UI and the Nexus One has stock Android 2.1. Based on recent history (and what we have been told), the Nexus One should always be the first Android phone to receive the latest version of the firmware while the Sense UI will lag behind on updates.
