The HTC Incredible S Android phone is a successor to the HTC Droid Incredible; a smartphone that launched in the US exclusively with the Verizon network.
Like HTC's other new Android phones, the Desire S and the Wildfire S, the HTC Incredible S is a slight upgrade rather than a huge overhaul of the original Incredible. The main point of difference is the aluminium unibody design, which HTC says gives it a tougher and more elegant feel than the original model.
The HTC Incredible S has a 4in, capacitive SLCD touchscreen with a 480x800-pixel resolution, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and 768MB of RAM. HTC has also included an 8-megapixel camera that doubles as a 720p HD video recorder, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling.
The HTC Incredible S will ship with the 2.2 (Froyo) version of Google's Android platform, but HTC has promised an upgrade to 2.3 Gingerbread in the near future. Like HTC's other Android phones, the Incredible S will come with HTC's Sense UI which adds a number of features mainly centred on interactive home screen widgets.
HTC has not announced whether the Incredible S Android phone will be released in Australia, but it will begin shipping in European and Asian markets around May.
