HTC Incredible SDoes the newest version of the Incredible live up to its name? CNET's Bonnie Cha lays it out.
Hey, everyone. I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com and we're here in Barcelona, Spain for Mobile World Congress and I've got here your first look at the HTC Incredible S. This is the successor to the very popular Incredible which we loved and gave the Editor's Choice, too. As far as design, it's a little more rounder which I like. It still has that contoured back on here and can't take off the back but it has that red interior which we saw in the first Incredible. On front, you've got a 4-inch Super LCD display. Really sharp and very responsive. One cool thing about the phone is when you switch over to landscape mode, these buttons will actually rotate with it so that's a pretty cool little feature there. Has an 8-megapixel camera on the back that's capable of doing HD video and also has DLNA support so you can wirelessly stream media to compatible devices. Currently, this phone is running Android 2.2 but we're gonna double check with HTC to see if it will ship with Android 2.3 or 2.4 like some of the other HTC devices that were announced today. For now, HTC is only talking about global availability so the Incredible S will be available in Europe, in Asia, starting around Q2 2011. No word yet on US availability. Hopefully, we'll get it here in the States with one of the providers. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the HTC Incredible s.
