HTC has announced that its Incredible S Android smartphone will be available exclusively through Optus for three months when it launches in Australia on 1 May.

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 ships with the latest 2.3 (Gingerbread) version of Google's Android platform. 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.

"We're delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Optus by launching the HTC Incredible S on the Optus Open Network," said Ben Hodgson, country manager HTC Australia and New Zealand. "This powerful device exudes a mix of style, innovation and features that customers have come to expect from HTC." Optus has not yet announced pricing details for the Incredible S, but it is expected to be available both outright and on a range of contract plans.

Optus' rival Telstra has already secured exclusive rights to sell HTC's other new Android phone — the HTC Desire S — in the coming months.

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
