    A certain Droid Incredible 2 -- with or without the "Droid" bit in it's name -- has surfaced on Verizon's system alongside the HTC Merge at the end of February indicating that there will be a follow-up to the successful HTC Droid Incredible. AndroidSPIN got some nice shots of a Verizon branded HTC Incredible S which will most likely be Verizon's HTC Incredible 2. While the device itself is rather good in what it delivers, "has a terrific screen, exhibits great performance, takes awesome photos, and it's loaded with the latest version of HTC Sense", it only got a score of 3 out of 5 in our ...

    Verizon's HTC Incredible 2 has been getting pretty leaky as of late, which is usually a good sign that a release is near (despite the fact that the phone is still unofficial at this point). The best indicator we have to a solid ship date is that purported roadmap which leaked late last month, and which pointed to April 28th for the initial rollout. The Incredible 2 is little more than a rebranded Incredible S, currently HTC's flagship handset until next week, when we're expecting a pair of dual-core phones in the Pyramid/Sensation and worldwide GSM version of the EVO 3D. Once again we see ...

    It looks like Verizon is cleaning house in anticipation of upcoming smartphone releases, including the Incredible 2/S, by ceasing sales of the original HTC Incredible, just a few weeks shy of it being one year since the phone's debut. Over at Verizon's website, you can see that the Incredible is no longer listed amongst smartphones currently available for sale. That situation may be different in Verizon retail stores, depending on current stock, but we imagine it's soon to disappear from them as well. Sure, technology improves, and new models will inevitably replace the old, but we can't ...

    Falling in line behind HTC's G2 and Thunderbolt 4G, it has been revealed that the Incredible S features a signed bootloader as well. The device joins a growing list of higher security devices designed to prevent hackers from deploying un-approved code. HTC as well as nearly every other device manufacturer lock their device in some way to prevent deployment of un-approved software to their devices (custom ROMs, kernels, recovery, etc.) In the past, gaining root access to the device was enough to deploy these custom images. With it's recent device releases, Motorola stepped up their ...

    For those of you with an HTC Incredible S, myTouch 3G Slide, or Wildfire, today is a good day for you! HTC has released the kernel source code for these devices as opensource. With the code to the kernel and drivers developers and tinkerers can start building custom ROMs which can make the smartphones go faster, batteries last longer, and who knows what other sorts of cool stuff! But if you're the kind of person that would never run a custom ROM on your phone, it's good news for you, too! The more sets of eyes looking at the source code, the more likely it is that bugs will be found and ...

    At Mobile World Congress, HTC unveiled three new phones that act as successors to the HTC Desire, Incredible, and Wildfire. The most interesting of the pack was the Incredible S, because it had a large 4" Super LCD display, buttons that rotate along with the phone, and similar specs to the high-end Desire HD. In this review of the unlocked version of the Incredible S, which happens to work on T-Mobile, we tell you whether the Incredible S is a worthy successor to the original. BOX CONTENTS Inside the box we have just the charger and some headphones. The Incredible S comes with an 8GB ...

    After taking a closer look at the hardware of the Incredible S, we spend some time poking around at the software. The Incredible S, despite having nearly identical specs when compared to the Inspire 4G, manages to score lower in Quadrant in most cases (update: after an additional run, shown in the image above, it scored a similar score to the Inspire 4G). And this lower score is reflected in day-to-day performance: while the Incredible S is generally quite responsive, there are times when it feels a bit laggy when compared to the Inspire 4G. In terms of internet data speeds, we were able ...

    Surprise! The HTC Incredible S takes pretty stellar photos and video. It's a surprise because lately, it's been hard to find a smartphone with a better-than-mediocre camera. As you can see in the below test shots, the colors are vibrant and there is little noise with a high amount of detail. Click on any of the images to get the full 8MP resolution view. Then, take a look at the below video samples shot at 1280x720 resolution. One is shot in a low light situation, while the other is shot outdoors. Perhaps HTC is getting more serious about the quality of their smartphone cameras!

    After unboxing HTC's latest Android smartphone, it's time to take a look at the hardware of the Incredible S in more depth. In terms of specs, it's running with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz CPU with 768MB of RAM and 1.1GB of ROM (plus 8GB of storage included with the microSD card). It has the bands to work on T-Mobile, and so far we've been clocking some pretty healthy data speeds (more on this in the next video). On the back there is an 8MP camera with a 1.3MP camera up front. In terms of hardware fit and finish, we weren't terribly impressed with the Incredible S's offering. The design ...

    At Mobile World Congress, HTC unveiled five new phones. Among them was the Incredible S, a successor to the Incredible that landed on Verizon.

Here are some first impressions of the device: - It's got a very vanilla design. The contour on the ...

    Just when Samsung is finally getting Android 2.2 Froyo to their smartphones, HTC went and announced that many of its recent phones will be getting Android 2.3 Gingerbread in the Spring. The devices in question range from the Desire and Desire HD to the Desire Z and the newer Incredible S. Many of you know that the HTC Desire Z and the T-Mobile G2 are essentially the same phone, the latter without HTC's Sense UI. No mention was made whether or not an official Gingerbread update would be made available for the G2 at the same time -- or ever. We'll have to wait for T-Mobile to answer that ...

    The HTC Incredible S was part of the five devices HTC has launched with the occasion of the Mobile World Congress and we had some hands-on time with the smartphone featuring the all new Intelligent Buttons. The 4-inch WVGA 800x480 smartphone sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon single core 1GHz CPU with 768MB of RAM and 1.1GB of ROM was set for a Q2 2011 launch in Europe with Etailers already confirming the early Q2 time-frame. Looks like HTC has made some changes in its plans -- or the Etailer is selling some pre-release units -- but the handset is already on sale today in the UK, that is with ...
