HTC Wildfire S for Virgin Mobile Hands-on
Virgin Mobile currently has a reliable lineup of Android powered smartphones, but the HTC Wildfire S should nonetheless be decent option for those who don’t want to spend a whole lot of hard-earned cash. Priced at a reasonable $199.99, it’s easily going to be a head turner taking into account its no-contract required status.

Just like all of the variants out there, the HTC Wildfire S for Virgin Mobile follows in similar fashion with its quality industrial design that we come to normally expect out of HTC’s camp. Solid feeling all around, we dig its compact form and evenly distributed weight to instill a sense of confidence within us about its build quality. Turning our attention to its 3.2” HVGA display, it’s indeed on the smaller side of things – though, it's detailed enough to clearly make things out. Getting down and dirty with the Sense experience running on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, we’re content by its tolerable rate seeing that it’s being powered by a 600MHz processor under the hood.

Naturally, its hardware specs won’t win power users, but for $199.99 no-contract, it’s definitely an enticing option considering there are no lengthy contracts required with the purchase. And it’s honestly a good down to earth smartphone that will be the perfect solution for those moving up to a smartphone for the very first time.

Sweet! I've been waiting for this since I've heard rumors that the Optimus black for Virgin Mobile won't be out until February.
