HTC Incredible S Android phone (preview)

HTC Incredible S preview: The HTC Incredible S has an aluminium unibody design but doesn't differ too much from its predecessor

The HTC Incredible S Android phone is a successor to the HTC Droid Incredible; a smartphone that launched in the US exclusively with the Verizon network.

Check out our guide to the best upcoming smartphones in 2011, and read our reviews of other top HTC phones.

Like HTC's other new Android phones, the Desire S and the Wildfire S, the HTC Incredible S is a slight upgrade rather than a huge overhaul of the original Incredible. The main point of difference is the aluminium unibody design, which HTC says gives it a tougher and more elegant feel than the original model.

The HTC Incredible S has a 4in, capacitive SLCD touchscreen with a 480x800-pixel resolution, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and 768MB of RAM. HTC has also included an 8-megapixel camera that doubles as a 720p HD video recorder, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling.

The HTC Incredible S will ship with the 2.2 (Froyo) version of Google's Android platform, but HTC has promised an upgrade to 2.3 Gingerbread in the near future. Like HTC's other Android phones, the Incredible S will come with HTC's Sense UI which adds a number of features mainly centred on interactive home screen widgets.

HTC has not announced whether the Incredible S Android phone will be released in Australia, but it will begin shipping in European and Asian markets around May.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
