HTC Incredible and External Storage
One of the things you will find me doing with this blog is archiving some of my more useful posts to the Android Google Groups, or highlighting something in StackOverflow.
The upshot is that while the Incredible has a lot of on-board
flash, that’s not what gets reported by
Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory(). That still points
to the SD card. Initial devices shipped to reviewers had
the SD card slot empty – as one might expect in a device
with lots of on-board flash. However, applications needing
external storage would then break.
Verzion, to its credit, is reportedly shipping 2GB SD cards with the Incredible, perhaps solely to address this issue.
