Following in tradition to most of HTC’s packaging, the box for the HTC Incredible S is fairly minimalistic with an accurately sized photo of the handset gracing its front. Aside from seeing its branding being littered around its sides, the rear holds some highlights about the device, as well as some of its specifications. Specifically, it features a 4” WVGA (480 x 800) Super LCD display, 1GHz Qualcomm 8255 processor, 768MB of RAM, 1.1GB of internal storage, 8-megapixel auto focus camera with dual-LED flash, latest version of Sense running on top of Android 2.2 Froyo, 720p HD video recording, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 3.5mm headset jack, microUSB port, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1.
Obviously, its weight and size is increased over the original HTC Incredible, but from quickly holding it, we like its soft touch feel all around. Inside the packaging, we find stereo headphones, microphone clip, wall charger, microUSB cable, and its wealth of documentation. Sit tightly because we’ll be checking this handset out over the course of the next few days, but in the meantime, you can check out our unboxing video below. Expect to see our in-depth review soon!
- Display 4.0" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S2, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 1 GB
- Battery 1450 mAh(6.33h 3G talk time)
Looks decent. The Incredible was a great phone on VZW. Probably the best Android phone until the Thunderbolt came out today. But I definitely prefer the size of the Incredible S (aka Incredible 2) over the Thunderbolt. Thunderbolt just looks too chunky.

VZW will still have the Incredible 2; this is JUST a GSM version of this phone

A question please. If this is a GSM version would that mean it will be avaliable from AT&T? And if so when?

In the video it says T-mobile shortly after booting up. Is that where it's going or he just using his t-mobile sim? I would really consider an LTE version of this on Verizon. Unless the Droid Bionic comes out first, of course.

Of course the phone was developed primarily for GSM as that is what most of the world uses. CDMA is a bit of a problem as it would be only about 2% of the global market. Hopefully this fad will fade out when more people realise they cannot use voice and data at the same time....many of the most popular social networking applications naturallydepend on both.
