Optus has confirmed pricing for the HTC Incredible S, which it holds exclusively for three months from 1 May.
The device will be sold at $0 upfront on a $49 Cap on a 24 month contract, as well as a range of other plans to give consumers a choice of prices, call, SMS and data inclusions.
The device will also be available to small business customers on a $0 upfront, $49 Business Complete Ultimate plan.
The plan includes social network browsing on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and FourSquare within Australia, as well as 1.5GB mobile internet data and a $500 limit on calls and SMS.
The pricing has been devised to allow users to the most out of the HTC Incredible S.
“As the phone continues to move from the ear to the eye, features found on the HTC Incredible S such as High Definition video recording and multifunctional cameras are becoming more important for our customers,” said Gavin Williams, Optus Consumer Marketing Director.
“When combined with the Optus Open Network we believe our customers will have the perfect combination to get the most out of this great handset.”
HTC’s first Gingerbread offering for the Australian market has a sculptured look and feel and sports HTC’s own unique user experience ‘skin’, the Sense, which puts its own flavour to the Android experience, said HTC at the phone’s recent launch in Sydney.
The company reckons it has raised the bar with the Incredible S’s contoured body, which sports a 4 inch super LCD touch screen with 480 x 800 resolution, super fast 1GHz processor, and the capacity to capture video at 720p HD and virtual surround sound gives a good multimedia viewing experience.
The phone also carries a 16GB class 4 microSD card on top of its own internal memory and is also a DLNA certified device which makes sharing pictures and video simple with other DLNA devices.
Battery life has also been extended with a 1450mAH battery which gives talk time of 10 hours and lengthened standby operation.
The HTC Incredible S will be available from retail outlets from the 1st May and available online from the 6th May.
