Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy have scored yet another exclusive as they have announced that they will be the first in the UK to sell the HTC Incredible S smartphone which can already be preordered on their website.
The phone is set to go on sale tomorrow, February 26, and is one of the first phones to be announced in the UK after the Mobile World Congress 2011; the phone will go on sale nationwide from March 3rd across more than 800 stores.
The phone is basically a smaller version of the HTC Desire HD (or a bigger version of the HTC Desire S); it comes with a four-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 768MB RAM, 1.1GB ROM, an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, HD recording, HTCSense.com, DLNA compatibility and Android 2.2 (to be upgraded soon to Gingerbread).
Some have expressed their disappointment that HTC is not more eager to compete with other Android manufacturers. Indeed, HTC is the only big Android mobile phone manufacturers, with Sony Ericsson, not to have delivered a dual core super phone at the Mobile World Congress.
Motorola with the Atrix, LG with the Optimus 3D and 2X and Samsung with the Galaxy S II have shown their cards.
It was rumoured that HTC might released a new handset called the Pyramid at last week's event, one which would come with a dual core processor and match its competitors when it came to features and specification but it never materialised.
