Two of HTC's better-known handsets, the Droid Incredible and the Evo 4G, are currently receiving software updates. Unfortunately they aren't Gingerbread some are anxiously awaiting, but instead are typical maintenance releases and tweaks. Some of you may have already received these files, as they started rolling out over the last day or so.

The update hitting the Droid Incredible sees the addition of the Verizon V Cast Apps store, a first for Android. Promised for the Droid, Droid X, Samsung Fascinate, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab , the alternative storefront is a hotly debated topic. Some users, already familiar with the service from feature phones, may like the addition, whereas users are not so happy, having no choice to restrict the application.

Other details in the update include enhanced support for Yahoo IMAP e-mail, an updated Slacker Radio application, and the ability to attach files larger than 5MB into e-mails. More information can be found on Verizon's support page for the Droid Incredible.

Sprint's Evo 4G will see an even smaller release. The update, which will bring devices up to version 3.30.651.3, is primarily designed to address camera issues when using Qik or Tango. Although Sprint hasn't formally announced the update, plenty of Android Central forum users are reporting their phones getting prompts for the update.
