DROID Incredible No Longer Receiving Gingerbread

droidIncredible

HTC announced a while ago , that DROID Incredible will receive the Gigerbread update in summer, but after their last announcement it seems that this is not going to happen. After a user asked about when this is going to happen, a HTC rep said:

“We only update our phones if it will provide an overall improved user experience as we balance features, performance and usability. Because of this, we will only be updating certain phones to Gingerbread. At this time, the Droid Incredible is not on that list.”

There are already custom ROMs available for the Incredible that are based on Gingerbread so the phone should be able to run it. It sounds like this is a similar issue to the Desire in that HTC Sense is in the way for updating the Incredible to Gingerbread. They got it done with the Desire, but it is a half-baked way of doing an update. It is probably something that they did not want to do with the Incredible. Assuming this was the case, I am sure Verizon Wireless was against it as well.

Anyway, there isn’t any official announcement about this, so stay tuned…
