HTC Wildfire S announced, is a budget-friendly Gingerbread phone
HTC just announced the successor of the HTC Wildfire, aptly named the HTC Wildfire S.

Design-wise, this phone is highly reminiscent of its predecessor, as the only notable difference between the two is the optical trackpad, which is missing on the Wildfire S' front side. It's quite compact, measuring only 3.99-inches long and 2.34-inches wide, and is available in three colors - black, purple and white.

As for its specs, it is packing a 3.2-inch Super LCD display with HVGA resolution (320 x 480) and a 5MP camera with LED flash. A 600MHz processor is powering the phone, and it offers 512MB of RAM and ROM.

The Wildfire S also adds a variety of  features, which are a must for any modern smartphone - like Facebook integration and a microSD slot.

The real talking point of this phone, however, is none other than the fact it's to launch with the latest incarnation of Android - Gingerbread - out of the box. Furthermore, the user experience will be enhanced with the well-known HTC Sense UI, which will also be on board.

This phone will be "broadly available to customers across major European and Asian markets during Q2 2011", but its price is yet unknown.

Nice size, really nice design. Looking forward to see hands-on.. HVGA is just not too good for texting and web browsing which are both standards in a smartphone. Let's see..

dude 256k display is much better than 16m display.....google it looser!
and i have both wildfire and wildfire s.wildfire is is super sexy.awsome display.superb user interface,ultimate online experience,great camera quality....this was an awsome investment for sure.With a price tag on just 13.5 k ,gingerbread and so many features,this 1 is probably the best of its lot....i hav tried ol d besties on android market and everything ran so smoothly......it never hanged even though the internal memory has been drained....never experrienced any latency...battery sucks....1 day at the max internal memory is low ....only 128 usable...bt it is sufficient for anyone.....bt yeah if u r lookin for an ugly looking videogame,go for samsung!
