Adds "S" to Incredible, Desire, and Wildfire

Phone Scoop is reporting this morning that HTC has announced three updated versions of the following existing Android devices: Incredible, Desire, and Wildfire. To differentiate from the older versions, an "S" will now follow each one's title. 

All three devices run the latest version of HTC's Sense UI and sport quad-band GSM/EDGE, GPS, and Wi-Fi radios; a gyroscope, compass, proximity, and light sensors; 3.5mm headset jacks, and support for microSD cards. 

The Incredible S will now sport HSPA at 14.4Mbps (as opposed to CDMA on the prior version) with support for 900/1700AWS/2100MHz spectrum. It has a 4-inch, 480 x 800 touchscreen powered by a 1GHz processor. It also boasts an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 720p video, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing one as well. According to PCWorld, the Incredible S will ship with Froyo, not Gingerbread. The Incredible S is likely headed to T-Mobile USA.

The Desire S also boasts a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, but the main camera is just 5 megapixels and the front-facing camera is VGA. It has a 3.7-inch, 480 x 800 touchscreen, and loses AWS connectivity for dual-band HSPA 900/2100MHz. Inexplicably, it will run Gingerbread.

The Wildfire S is the smallest and least powerful of the bunch, with a 600MHz processor, 3.2-inch, 320 x 480 touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, and dual-band 900/2100MHz HSPA. It, too, will run Gingerbread.

Pricing and availability was not immediately announced.
