Phone Scoop spent some quality time with the HTC Incredible S, the new, GSM version of the Incredible. Here are our first thoughts.

The HTC Incredible S is the highest end Android phone announced by HTC at Mobile World Congress this year. It packs the most impressive set of specs, and has one of the better hardware designs.

It doesn't stray too far from the design of the original Incredible. It's a slab-style device with a generous 4-inch display and slim footprint. Surprisingly, it is skinned mostly in plastic materials, but they have a soft-touch paint job which really helps the device stick nicely in your hand.

The display looks fantastic, though it is the same 480 x 800 resolution that is available on many Android phones. HTC said that it is using Super LCD technology rather than AMOLED. It's bright, colorful, and is put to good use by HTC's software.

The controls are well placed on the outside of the device. The volume toggle is the typical HTC slim dash, but it had good travel and feedback. The headphone and power/lock key are along the top.

The Incredible S runs HTC's Sense UI on top of Android 2.2. With the 1.0 GHz processor under the hood, the software moved quickly and reacted well to input.

With support for AWS 1700 spectrum, it is highly likely that T-Mobile will sell this device, though that has yet to be confirmed.
