It also sports a 3.2" HVGA touch-enabled screen and  is powered by a 600 MHz processor. It also features a five megapixel camera (with auto-focus), as well as expandable microSD memory.
HTC Incredible S
The Incredible S also offers stereo surround sound, an 8 megapixel camera with dual flash and the ability to share multimedia content from the handset direct to a TV using DLNA technology. Users will be able to view videos in high-definition on this smartphone’s 4" WVGA Super LCD display.
