Shortly after the end of HTC's press event at MWC, we rushed to get a closer look at the exciting new lineup and the HTC Incredible S stood out with its angular “inside out” design. The first thing that you would notice...

So far, we haven't seen any new physical qwerty keyboard phones revealed at the MWC yet. I hope they will have one. I love my current Desire Z but 180 grams is too heavy. :(

htc sucks??? why is that cuz they dont use the tegra 2? get over yourself ive seen what the T2 can do and if ur not a hard core gamer it does not matter at all these phones have 0 leg and the OS have not even been optimized for duel core anyway and wont be for some time now so htc is just fine with there 1GHZ processor till atleast Q3 this year and there has already been talk of the htc pyrimid... T2 will be bottom of the barrel before the end of the year!!

Are you forgetting that the top of the line phone for HTC on Verizon will be the Thunderbolt?

Looks like a nice phone, decent size...I guess the optical cursor is out, I really like it on the original Incredible...many times I find it useful to place the cursor exactly where I need it.

I think HTC are a little behind, cause they had to deal with Microsoft and make an agreement to crank out a ton of stupid windows7 phones, to avoid getting sued over Android.

I'd guess that wasted a lot of HTC executives' time, so they got beaten by Samsung, LG, etc in the CPU/GPU department, as well as having no 1080p video, makes it a no-go for me to buy an HTC phone.

What would make up for that lack to me, would be an HTC phone with bigger batteries. I would be an HTC Desire HD owner, if it wasn't for the small battery in that unit.

Samsung puts bigger batteries in their new Galaxy, records in 1080p, has an amoled screen. I think for me, that superceeds HTC's nice aluminum casings, and it appears I can't buy 1 device that has everything.

And if you want to tell me about dual core chips eating more power, thats actually not the case, they often use less power, except when you're making heavy use of 3D.
