HTC Incredible S ships in Canada at Bell, Virgin
Canadian telecommunications and cable provider Bell is now shipping the HTC Incredible S. Virgin Mobile, Bell's sibling, has also now launched the device. At either provider, the phone costs $500 CAD ($519) contract-free or $100 CAD ($104) on a three-year contract with a voice and data plan. Bell requires a minimum $50 CAD ($52) per month plan while Virgin users can get a $40 CAD plan ($41.50).
The Incredible S has a four-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with an 480x800 resolution, an eight-megapixel camera with dual LED flash in the back, a 1.3-megapixel camera in the front and a 1GHz second-generation Snapdragon underneath. Android 2.2 is preloaded and 1.1GB of space is onboard. Either phone ships with an 8GB microSD memory card.
As with most Canadian carriers, the Wi-Fi hotspot feature is both active and carries no extra charge for those who already have a 1GB or larger data plan.
