HTC Incredible S Hands-On [MWC] Updated with video

58

 

Your loyal HTC Droid Incredible just got itself a nice little spec bump here at Mobile World Congress 2011. The HTC Incredible S now packs a 4-inch, WVGA Super LCD display, rear 8-mp camera with HD capabilities flanked by two LED flashes, a front-facing camera, 1GHz Qualcomm processor, and 768mb of RAM, all powered by a 1450mAh battery. One clever bit they added: when you rotate the phone, the capacitive buttons (which are just a display anyway) also rotate. Add in the new Sense experience on top of Android 2.3.2 and, yeah, like we said, it's a totally respectable bump.

They hardware we grabbed onto at the booth was pre-production but felt like an Incredible: big, solid, and not shy about adding a little thickness to get that contoured back. Pricing, availability - unknown. What we do know is that you can get some photos after the break and video is uploading.

HTC ChaCha and Salsa announced, dedicated Facebook button included

3

Well, it looks like those HTC Facebook rumors were true after all. HTC has announced the HTC ChaCha and the HTC Salsa. These two oddly named devices will support a dedicated one-touch Facebook button on the front of each phone and will rock Android 2.3.3 under their hoods.

The ChaCha will dance its way around with a 2.6-inch display, and a full QWERTY keyboard to boot. The other phone, the HTC Salsa, will rock a full 3.4-inch display. And that's pretty much it, that's all we know so far. The new Facebook support seems to be a glorified modification of the new HTC Sense. We're betting that this is not the true "Facebook Phone" that has been long rumored since Erick Tseng left Google for Facebook Mobile. More info in the press release after the break.

HTC announces the HTC Flyer, a 7-inch tablet with tablet-specific HTC Sense

22


HTC has announced their entrance to the tablet space this morning with the 7-inch HTC Flyer, with an all-new HTC Sense redesigned specifically for tablets. In addition, HTC has announced HTC Watch, a new video service and HTC Scribe, digital ink technology.

The Flyer has a 7-inch screen with a solid, aluminum body. HTC claims it weighs as little as a 'paperback book', which is vague but promising. It will also sport a 1.5GHz processor that will combine with HSPA+ technologies.

The newly redesigned HTC Sense is specific for tablets and will feature a 'gorgeous 3D homescreen'. 

Along with the Flyer, HTC also unveiled it's Scribe technology, which allows users to use digital ink innovations in such functions as notes, contracts and drawing pictures.

HTC is also making a giant leap in the cloud-based video game space with their new gaming service provided by OnLive. It will allow users to transmit the service to their TVs or let them play on the tablet itself. A few titles already announced thus far are Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, NBA 2K11 and Lego Harry Potter. 

The Flyer will ship in Q2 with Android 2.4 (Gingerbread), with Honeycomb coming later. The new tablet will be heavily built on the new HTC Sense technology, which has been specifically designed for tablets. Stay tuned for more exciting info from Spain! Full press release after the break.

HTC Revolver - A Honeycomb phone destined for AT&T?!

14

As we prepare to head on in to the HTC event today, we wouldn't be off to a great start if there wasn't some last minute rumors popping up. No, we're not talking about those Facebook phones here. We're talking about the HTC Revolver which has been suggested to be a Honeycomb loving phone that is headed to AT&T. Of course, the fact it's a phone running Honeycomb has us wondering about the legitimacy of it all.

Spec wise the information suggests a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, 16GB of on-board storage, and 1GB of memory with an 8 megapixel camera on the back and an 3 megapixel camera on the front. As much as we'd like to see how Honeycomb would run on a device like this, we'll have to wait for the HTC announcements later today. [Engadget]

*Update* - As expected, nothing to see here. just some Tom Foolery.
