HTC Adds An 'S' to Incredible, Desire, Wildfire
HTC today announced updated versions of three existing handsets. The Incredible, Desire and Wildfire all gain an "S" in their name and receive updated features. Shared specs between the three handsets include: quad-band GSM/EDGE, GPS, and Wi-Fi radios; gyroscope, compass, proximity and light sensors; 3.5mm headset jacks, and support for microSD cards. All three devices run the latest version of HTC's Sense user interface.
- Incredible S: This update to the Incredible switches from CDMA to HSPA at 14.4Mbps with support for 900/1700AWS/2100MHz spectrum. It has a 4-inch touch screen with 480 x 800 pixels, a 1GHz processor, and an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, dual LED flash, and 720p HD video capture. It includes a 1.3 megapixel user-facing camera, too, and runs Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. Given the AWS spectrum support, this device is likely headed to T-Mobile in the U.S.
- Desire S: The Desire S also has a 1GHz processor, but steps the main camera down to 5 megapixels (with autofocus and "power" flash) and the secondary camera down to VGA. It has a 3.7-inch touch display with 480 x 800 pixels, and loses AWS connectivity for dual-band HSPA 900/2100MHz and also includes Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.
- Wildfire S: This smaller phone has a 600MHz processor, 3.2-inch touch display with 320 x 480 pixels, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, and dual-band 900/2100MHz HSPA. The Wildfire runs Bluetooth 3.0+HS.
What's up with the "S"???
...Sounds a little shady to me.
