Coming soon to Optus is the HTC Incredible S, running on the Gingerbread version of the Google Android operating system.
The HTC Incredible S is a multimedia powerhouse – 4 inch touchscreen, 8 megapixel main camera, 720p HD video recording, SRS WOW HD sound, and the ability to display photos and video wirelessly to a TV via DLNA.
Like many smartphones the screen of the Incredible S aligns either portrait or landscape, depending upon how the phone is being held. This phone adds another trick in that area, in that it has the phone’s buttons re-align to match the orientation of the screen.
HTC Incredible S release date and price
The HTC Incredible S will go on sale in May, and will be exclusive to Optus for three months. There are no pricing details at this time – they will be disclosed closer to the release date.
