The HTC Incredible S promo is finally out on DiGi’s website. Earlier on DiGi had given a teaser that it is offering a 1 day special deal this Saturday, 2nd April 2011 where you can get one for only RM599.
Just like its previous one day offers for BlackBerry Torch and BlackBerry Bold 9780, the HTC Incredible S is limited to first few hundred customers with 24 months DG Smart Plan. If you’re game for this offer, only 300 units nationwide are available at RM599 and they are limited to the following DiGi outlets:
The normal price for the HTC Incredible S is RM1999. On DG Smart Plan, it goes for RM1449 for 12 months or RM1199 for 24 months contract.
More details at DiGi’s Smart Plan promo site.
We’ve just gotten the above teaser artwork from DiGi. The full details will go up live on DiGi’s website midnight tonight. Full details are now online. 300 units limited to 13 outlets nationwide.
We’ve just got this announcement moments ago. The first 300 customers to subscribe to a 24-months DiGi Smartplan contract will be able to purchase the HTC Incredible S for just RM599. From the press release, details are scarce but we’ve sent a series of questions, so let’s hope they get back to us on more info soon.
But here’s what we know:
Currently the link — www.digi.com.my/htc — mentioned in the announcement doesn’t work, so while we await more details from DiGi, head on over the jump to read the announcement.
We put it out in the open that the recently launched Nexus S is probably one of the most overpriced smart phones in the local market today (this is of course not considering absurdities like the Vertu et all). We find this rather odd considering a similarly speced HTC Incredible S that was launched on the same day is close to RM500 cheaper than the Google phone.
Is the premium on the Nexus S warranted? Some seem to think so. The supporters claim that the Nexus S delivers a pure, unadulterated Google experience and that being the only device currently available that’s running the latest version of the Android OS — Android 2.3 Gingerbread — the additional cost is warranted.
But is it? Is the Nexus S a better phone compared to its closest competitor the HTC Incredible S for it to command such a high price? Spec for spec how would both of this top shelf Android devices compare with the iPhone 4?
We’ve compiled all important specs for you to compare you can make the right choice. Head on over to after the jump to get all the details.

The HTC Incredible S which has just been launched this morning has made an appearance on DiGi’s website. As mentioned earlier, the HTC Incredible S is priced at RM1999 outright with DiGi subsidising up to RM800 with DG Smart Plan Contract.
While we are waiting for the official announcement by DiGi, they had instead started a round of Registration of Interest (ROI) of the device. Not sure what’s the point since the price is known but if you’re eyeing for an Incredible S on DiGi, they will inform you once it is available at their stores.
To register, head over to DiGi’s ROI page here.
Update: Added pictures and videos from the event as well as press pictures and press release.
On contract, DiGi is offering RM550 subsidy for 1 year contract and RM800 for 2 years, making the device priced at RM1449 and RM1199 respectively. If you’re an existing contracted DG Smart Plan customer, unfortunately there’s no upgrade or contract extension plans at the moment. HTC Malaysia has also mentioned that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the Incredible S will be coming in June.
More updates coming soon! Pictures and videos from the launch plus press release and press pictures of the HTC Incredible S right after the jump.
In terms of availability, the HTC Incredible S will be exclusively available from DiGi from next week onwards. Non-contract availability of the device will be at the end of April.
For those of you waiting for the latest HTC device to come to Malaysia, now is the time to rejoice. HTC Malaysia has just issued a media invite to the launch of the HTC Incredible S — one of the newer HTC devices to hit the local market.
The HTC Incredible S launch is pegged for this Friday, March 18. We’ll be there to give you the latest updates and details.
Top line spec of the HTC Incredible S include a 1GHz processor (sorry no dual-core) with a massive 768MB or RAM and 1.1GB of internal storage. In terms of imaging there are two cameras on the Incredible S. One is an 8MP rear-facing unit with auto-focus and dual-LED flash and 720p video recording capability. The other is a 1.3MP front-facing unit for video calls on top of picture taking and video recording. Wrapping it all up is a 4-inch Super LCD touchscreen (480×800 pixels). The Incredible S runs Android 2.2 (Froyo)
Other than that, everything else is what you’d expect from a contemporary smart phone with Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi all included.
Ahead of the official Malaysia launch, not much details have been revealed but a tie-up with a telco (most probably Maxis) is not out of the question. In terms of pricing, we have no real indication but we’re expecting the Incredible S to retail around RM2,500 outright.
And that’s about it, stay tuned for our Friday updates at the launch.
In the meantime, head on over to after the jump for a promo video on the Incredible S.
