Aaron unboxes and does an early review of the HTC One S (global edition), one of the three devices announced at Mobile World Congress 2012 in February.  Specifications include a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display (540x960 pixels), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, 1,650 mAh non-removable battery, and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with HTC Sense 4.  It's coming soon to T-Mobile in the States, but the unlocked version will work on AT&T's 3G (in the 850 MHz band).
