HTC Lowballs The Competition

The HTC Incredible S – their new flagship model – is due to start shipping in the UK tomorrow through Carphone Warehouse, much earlier than originally expected.

The 4 inch touchscreen Android phone was scheduled for Q2 release, but HTC may have played a blinder by releasing early.

The mobile phone market has been slow for the last couple of months, there haven’t been many really big launches and with many waiting to upgrade to see what the next iphone looks like there is a lot of pent up demand in the market. By launching now, HTC ought to be able to capitalise on this pent up demand and grab some sales before the next iphone lands.

Will it be any good? It should be, the hardware looks impressive, HTC’s Sense UI on top of Android 2.2 is a good combination and the promise of an early upgrade ┬áto Android 2.4 sounds appealing.
