HTC Wildfire S Dummy models start showing up at T-Mobile stores
The low-end HTC Wildfire S is set to launch from T-Mobile on August 3rd and the dummy units are beginning to make their way to the carrier's stores. For $79.99 and a 2 year signed contract, the Wildfire S is equipped with a 3.2 inch display with resolution of 320 x 480, a 5MP camera and 512MB or RAM/ROM. Despite the penny pinching specs, Android 2.3 is aboard.

As we previously reported, the HTC Wildfire S was codenamed the HTC Marvel back when it made its visit to the FCC. Even back then it was obvious that this was not going to be a highly spec'd model. If the latter is what you are seeking, there is the HTC Sensation 4G or the free T-Mobile G2x (with a signed 2 year contract, of course).

dummies? weve had the real deal for like a week.. lol. Its a replacement for the optimus basically. some people dont need the power. Then again, most returns and unsatisfied users come from basic android phones. Lets hope HTCs reputation holds up on the low end too.
