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

It is not yet known what network the Incredible S will launch with, but it is likely to be Optus or Vodafone given Telstra has already secured exclusive rights to sell the HTC Desire S in the coming months.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
