We have some important news if you are planning to pick up a HTC Droid Incredible in the coming weeks, as HTC has confirmed that all new models will ship with an SLCD screen, rather than the original AMOLED screen.

As reported from Droid-Life, HTC confirmed the news earlier on today, but a new Verizon document has clarified that this will affect all new models of the Droid Incredible handset.

HTC has said that the new models will be available ‘at the end of the Summer’, but Verizon’s document says the ‘end of September’ – which one is correct?

Droid-Life point out that the inclusion of a SLCD screen rather than AMOLED may help to reduce battery life problems, which is becoming quite a problem for Incredible owners at the moment.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you happy with an SLCD screen or not?
