HTC Incredible S hands-on [Video]

HTC Incredible S hands-on [Video]

Of all of HTC's new devices at MWC 2011, the handset we're least convinced with is the HTC Incredible S. The company's "inside-out" style reminds us of a plastic pool former, and while it certainly feels unusual in the hand, we're not the biggest fans.

HTC Wildfire S hands-on

HTC Wildfire S hands-on

The HTC Wildfire S is the company's cheapest phone at MWC 2011, but it feels considerably better than the Wildfire it replaces. Gone is the Desire-a-like design, with a more angular chassis - still plastic - that pushes the Wildfire S' own identity as a youth device. Android - in this case 2.3.2 on the prototypes, but 2.4 on the shipping versions - runs smoothly, despite the mere 600MHz processor, and the new HVGA display is a significant step up from the QVGA of the original.

HTC Desire S hands-on [Video]

We've just grabbed some hands-on time with the HTC Desire S, and the unibody update has done nothing to diminish the best-selling smartphone's charm. Broadly recognizable as the Desire, but with a chassis milled from a single piece of aluminum like the Legend, it's creak and flex free. More hands-on impressions and video after the cut

HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa eyes-on

HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa eyes-on

HTC has locked the single HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa prototype units here at MWC 2011 behind glass, and they're not allowing our Facebook-addicted fingers to get any play right now. From what we can see, the ChaCha looks the more interesting of the pair; the physical QWERTY keyboard is nicely spaced on a surprisingly broad chassis, and the touchscreen - while small - is highly pixel dense.

HTC's Flyer promises to bring another new angle to the Android tablet marketplace, with its stylus input and HTC's focus on note-taking and content creation. A 7-inch slate in a slick unibody aluminum and matte-finish plastic, HTC aren't allowing us to hold the prototypes at the MWC 2011 reveal, but from what we've seen we're already impressed. Check out our first impressions after the cut.

Stylus Wars: HTC Strikes Back

Stylus Wars: HTC Strikes Back

The HTC Flyer is an anomaly. So far, stylus-driven tablets have either been bargain-basement slabs with resistive touchscreens and hair-tearing usability, or expensive Windows-based machines with slick active digitizers but software more suited to desktop than pen. We've grown used to jabbing at our tablets with our fingers; Steve Jobs has even told us that's the only way a modern slate really works. So where does the Flyer come in?
