HTC Wildfire S officially coming to T-Mobile next month
Okay, it may not come as that great of a surprise since rumors about it have been going back and forth  for the past couple of days, but T-Mobile has now officially announced that it will start offering the HTC Wildfire S. Scheduled to hit the carrier's shelves on August 3, the entry-level Android smartphone will be available for $80 after a $50 mail-in rebate as long as you don't mind committing to a 2-year Classic service plan.

The HTC Wildfire S is aimed at those of you looking for a decent Android smartphone that will not break the bank. It packs a modest 600MHz processor backed up by 512MB of both RAM and ROM, which will definitely not shatter any Quadrant high scores, but should suffice for basic tasks like browsing the web and checking what's new with your buddies over at Facebook or Twitter. The Wildfire S has a compact design and comes with a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 320 by 480 pixels, 5-megapixel camera, HSPA connectivity, Wi-Fi, and GPS. In terms of software, the smartphone is equipped with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a dash of HTC Sense accompanied by a Swype keyboard for a more satisfying user experience. These are pretty much all the specs you might be interested in, but if you would like to learn more, feel free to check our HTC Wildfire S review.

The HTC Wildfire S will come in white and will be available in all T-Mobile outlets nationwide and on the carrier's web page. However, a black version will be sold exclusively at Walmart, Sam's Club, and on T-Mobile's online store.
