Optus has announced pricing details for the HTC Incredible S Android smartphone, which will be available exclusively through the telco for three months when it launches in Australia on 1 May.

The Incredible S will be available for $0 upfront on the $49 Optus cap over 24 months. The plan includes $500 worth of calls and text, and 1.5GB of data, along with free Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, eBay, LinkedIn and Foursquare access. The Incredible S will also be available for Optus business customers on the $49 business complete ultimate plan. Optus will sell the Incredible S in stores from 1 May, and online from 6 May.

The HTC Incredible S Android phone is a successor to the HTC Droid Incredible; a smartphone that launched in the US market exclusively with the Verizon network. Like HTC's other new Android phones, the Desire S and the Wildfire S, the HTC Incredible S is a slight upgrade rather than a huge overhaul of the original Incredible. The main point of difference is the aluminium unibody design, which HTC says gives it a tougher and more elegant feel than the original model.

The HTC Incredible S has a 4in, capacitive SLCD touchscreen with a 480x800-pixel resolution, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and 768MB of RAM. HTC has also included an 8-megapixel camera that doubles as a 720p HD video recorder, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling.

The HTC Incredible S ships with the latest 2.3 (Gingerbread) version of Google's Android platform. Like HTC's other Android phones, the Incredible S will come with HTC's Sense UI which adds a number of features mainly centred on interactive home screen widgets.

Optus' rival Telstra has already secured exclusive rights to sell HTC's other new Android phone — the HTC Desire S — in the coming months.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
