The Hero S has a 4-inch qHD Super LCD touch screen, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The U.S. version of the HTC Kingdom, it'll be available for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate, so long as you've got a data plan.

The more budget-friendly and basic HTC Wildfire S has a 3.2-inch display and a 5-megapixel camera. After the $100 mail-in rebate, it will cost you $79.99. We first reviewed it for T-Mobile.

The HTC Flyer (also known as the HTC Evo View 4G for Sprint) is a 7-incher powered by a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and 32GB of onboard memory. It also comes with the optional Scribe pen, which is sold separately. The tablet, which also runs Gingerbread, is available for $399.99 after that same $100 mail-in rebate, plus a two-year service agreement and $54.99 data plan.

Members of U.S. Cellular's Belief Project plans can get the Wildfire S and Hero S without having to sign a new contract, if they're eligible for an upgrade.
