The HTC Wildfire is being unleashed!

HTC have today announced a budget Android phone – the Wildfire. The name certainly sounds exciting and looking at the specs it looks set to be a very popular smartphone device. Similar to the super cool Desire, the Wildfire runs on the Android 2.1 operating system and boasts the Sense user interface under the easy to use capacitive touchscreen.

Being the Desires little sister means the spec sheet isn’t as high tech but it does boast a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, a number of social networking applications and an optical trackpad for easy navigation around the phone. The Wildfire comes with 3G HSDPA support and Wi-Fi to browse the web from the 3.2 inch screen and also features a GPS receiver, Bluetooth, microSD card slot and 3.5mm audio jack.

HTC have had to make cuts somewhere to produce a budget phone which has unfortunately fallen on the QVGA display making Android a little bit less special (but what can you expect if you want a cheap Android device?).

The Wildfire will be available in four colours giving it more appeal for a younger market and should be available in Q3 this year. For all the best HTC phones, compare deals at Mobiles Please now.
