There was no doubt that Virgin was getting ready to release the HTC Incredible S… there has been many internal docs and screenshots that pointed to it being available today. Alas, checking out their site shows this Android as officially launched and a great addition to their lineup. The price points for the OS 2.2 Froyo smartphone (soon the be upgraded to OS 2.3 Gingerbread) can be yours for$499.99 no term or $99.99 on the SuperTab/3-year.

    Man I keep wondering why I am still with Telus. Telus is sooooooooo slow on getting new phones in that it makes me wanna punch kittens (figuratively speaking of course, <3 kittens).

    I was actually thinking of picking up one of these but then I saw a review that mentioned all the junk software Bell and Virgin have loaded onto the phone, none of which I would use. And you can’t remove any of it without rooting your phone. So I’m gonna pass for now.

    @dexter rooting your phone is really easy.

    Getting any handset without carrier bloatware is next to impossible with the exception of the Nexus line. If bloatware is a deal killer for you, consider learning how to root & remove or freeze them; it’s not that difficult.

    This is a stellar handset. If your going to deal with carrier “skins” Sense is the best by far. HTC phones are generally more modification friendly then some other manufacturers.

    If only HTC would hook-up a dual core; I’d be on my way to the store right now. This is one of best single core based androids available. Especially in Canada.
