HTC Wildfire White

HTC Wildfire White

HTC have just announced the Wildfire, an Android 2.1 smartphone with a host of great features for an affordable price. Exactly how affordable remains to be seen, but we are led to believe that this particular device is pitched at the ‘low-cost’ bracket. The design of the phone is pretty nice too, and reminds me of a cross between the Nexus One and the Desire.

In terms of hardware, the Wildfire will offer you a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive AMOLED touchscreen housed in a 106.5mm x 60.4mm x 11.99mm (4.2in x 2.3in x 0.5in) chassis. This makes it very similar to the Desire, but slightly ‘shorter’. Inside, the Wildfire packs a 525-MHz Qualcomm MSM7225 processor with 512MB of RAM and 384MB of ROM. Expect a 5 megapixel camera, aGPS, Bluetooth and GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA/WiFi connectivity.

The manufacturer expects the device to become available in Q3 this year and the Wildfire will be available in four main colors, including Red, Brown, Black and White. For more information check out our sister site, Gallery after the jump.
