Unfortunately it looks like you are right. Andrei i made some calls to htc official representatives in our country and they told me the same thing that the incredible will not be launched in our country or nowhere else in europe ,being a phone designed for use in the united states only just like nexus. I don't think that's a wise marketing strategy by htc. Maybe they will release a phone with the same features like incredible but with another name.
Sorry guys, as much as I wanted to get this phone, I just received this confirmation from HTC:
"[...]As the device is branded and only made for Verizon this device would not be released any where else but in the USA. If you have any further questions please contact us again. Regards Adiam HTC"
john, 05 May 2010babe, go for the iPhone 4g...or the Evo 4g...you wont regret it ;)Yeah John, maybee that one will come to Europe... or not. Maybee we'll also get a "it'a phone made for Sprint only"..
First of all let's see if his informations are accurate. Still it's hard to believe because incredible has all what it takes to be a best seller. Htc would miss the opportunity to cash in big time, by creating this phone just to be used in the united states.
Stefan, 05 May 2010Come on! Are you kidding me? i also sent a couple of e-mails to them but i got no answer babe, go for the iPhone 4g...or the Evo 4g...you wont regret it ;)

See below answer received from HTC:
"[...]Thank you for contacting HTC Europe. The HTC Incredible will not be released to the European market as this is a branded device made for Verizon in the USA. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us again. Regards Adiam HTC"
Some hopes that it´s coming under another name? Let´s see what they have to say about that!
This phone IS officially announced by HTC (You can check the phone at their website) and IS already being sold by Verizon Wireless (in the USA).
Andrei,salut! You are right with experia but the fact is that not all the phoner released abroad are for sale here and it's not certain that the incredible will be available here. You are going for the 3gs? It's your choice but i believe the incredible is a better phone overall. I have seen the commercial with the desire, it airs on tv. If the incredible shows up here i want to buy it contract-free. Probably it wont cost more than 450-500 €. With the types of contracts available at vodafone you end up paying 2 or 3 times the price of the phone over the the 2 year contract.

The X10 camed to Orange(not that I'm recomanding it). I will probably go for the 3GS(for the games as I see the android games are a bit under 486 lvl :P)seeing that it's price is going down due to the 4G release and the Vodafones 199 euro Desire.
Carefull with the high SAR of the Incredible.
We are waiting from HTC one of the most eagerly anticipated mobile device with specifications & features like HTC Shift or ITG xpphone, as I used to have such devices, currently I'm using HTC Advantage X7500 and HTC hd2 with great success with so much thanks to HTC Co.
Andrei it's not sure for certain if this phone will be available in our country. For exampld motorola droid , the experia 10 and several other phones that were released months ago are not available here. Maybe both of us will have to order it from abroad.
john, 02 May 2010It HAS been released on 29-4 in USPls reread my answer. I was answering a question about the release of the phone in Yurp, as you say.
It's not a GSM phone, it's CDMA2000 phone, please correct the spec.
No 3G support on the 900MHz frequency???? I hope that's wrong, else this phone will be no good in Australia, unless you are on the Telstra NextG network.
