I know that all the Android fans couldn’t wait to see what HTC was bringing to Mobile World Congress. We were all hoping that HTC would bring us something to rival the Atrix and Bionic, well, sorry to say, but that is not the case. There was no dual-core goodness from HTC this time. Guess the dual-core Snapdragron is not quite done yet. Now for those wanting something comparable to the Xoom, you may have just got it. Keep reading for more.
The first phone to come from HTC was the Incredible S, the next installment of the Droid Incredible. While the similarities to it’s predecessor are evident, the most notable of which is the adjustable, capacitive buttons. The buttons will actually change depending on the screen orientation. Besides that, packed inside is a 1GHz Qualcomm processor coupled with 768 MB RAM. It comes with a 8 MP rear-facing camera with a dual-LED flash, capable of 720p HD recording. On the front is a 1.3 MP camera. The screen is 800 x 480 and the battery comes in at a size of 1450mAh. Oh, it comes with Android 2.2, Froyo. That’s a let down.
The next phone to be shown off was the Desire S, which, unlike the Incredible, will come packed with Android 2.3, Gingerbread. That, a 1.3 MP, front-facing camera, and a boost in RAM, up to 768 MB, are really the only difference between the Desire S and the previous version.
The final phone introduced by HTC was is a low-end device, the Wildfire S. Wow, HTC must really like the S. LIke the Desire S, this too will come with Gingerbread.
Now, for the HTC Flyer tablet. This 7″ tablet, like HTC’s other devices, does not come with a dual-core chip inside, however, it does have a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of flash memory. Unfortaunitly, it also does not come with Honeycomb though HTC has put a specialized sense UI on top of Android 2.4. Yeah, that’s right Android 2.4. I guess it is confirmed now. The excitement doesn’t stop there. It seems that the HTC Scribe is not a tablet. In fact, what it actually is, is a pressure-sensitive capacitive stylus. Also included is a screen resolution of 1024 x 600, a 5 MP rear and 1.3 MP front-facing cameras, and, of course, a micro-SD slot. Now, if they can keep the price down, I can see this competing really well with the Xoom.
