BARCELONA — Amidst a spew of product announcements comes HTC’s new flagship phone, the Incredible S. If you already have the Droid Incredible S, it may look familiar, but the HTC-branded version is actually pretty different.
First, it has HTC’s lovely Sense UI, this time built on top of Android 2.2. Sense makes the whole Android experience much slicker and more intuitive to use. Coupled with the spectacular screen, a four-inch Super LED with a 800 x 480 resolution (the Droid has a 3.7-inch OLED display), swiping around is a lot of fun. A 1GHz Qualcomm CPU, 768MB RAM and a gig of internal storage complete the computer part, and then we get on to the cameras.
Up front is a 1.3MP webcam, and around the back is an 8MP, autofocus behemoth, also capable of shooting 720p video.
Flip the Incredible S on its side and not only does the image rotate, as you’d expect, but the little light-up capacitive buttons on the side also rotate to stay “upright”. It’s a nice touch.
Despite its bigger screen, the Incredible S feels pretty slim and light, and I’d be happy to put one in my pocket. Unfortunately, the HTC stand at the Mobile World Congress has everything wired up tight to screeching alarms, so I left the display unit where it was. Available in the second quarter of the year.
