HTC is finally coming back to Optus, in the high end of the range. Launching May 1, Optus will have the Incredible S at their disposal, in an exclusive agreement for 1 month. Official pricing has not been confirmed, however our sources tell us, $0 on either a $49 or $59 Cap. We have also heard from a number of tipsters that Virgin will also range the handset $0 on the $39 Easy Cap, now that’s a great deal. We do not know whether Virgin will have the handset at launch at this stage, but let’s hope so.

For the price the Incredible S packs a fair punch. 4″ LCD with a resolution of 480×800, 1GHz Single-Core Processor, 768MB RAM, 8MP camera with 720p HD video and 1.3MP camera up front and of course all the standard trimmings, MicroSD support, 3.5mm audio, GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n all running under Android Gingerbread 2.3. What you don’t get, is HTC’s new Sense UI 3.0. That little gem has been saved for only it’s newest handsets. Like the lovely Pyramid….I mean…..Sensation. Are you looking forward to the Incredible S? Let us know.

is it confirmed that it will be launching with Gingerbread? I thought the Incredible S is meant to launch with Froyo with Gingerbread update down the track.

I do kinda hate exclusives in general, luckily it’s only a month.

Aside from the Flyer, HTC’s entire MWC11 line-up was just blah. I don’t see why anyone would want this over the Pyramid (I refuse to acknowledge the sensational name :P) – except maybe pricing.

Agree, other than pricing, it makes little sense to choose this over the sensational Sensation…
