HTC Wildfire is like the Desire, but won't break the bank

HTC Wildfire is like the Desire, but won't break the bank
Back in the middle of April, HTC posted a question on their Facebook page, asking their friends to vote for the name of a handset they are working on. The possible options were Jovi, Zeal, Wildfire and Festi. Well, it seems like the majority of people have voted for "Wildfire", as the renowned smartphone manufacturer has now announced a brand new Android phone, called the HTC Wildfire.

If you liked the powerful HTC Desire, but considered it too big, or too expensive, then you'll probably fall in love with the HTC Wildfire, as is it introduced as a more compact and budget-friendly version of the above-mentioned Android powerhouse. Of course, the Wildfire is also running Android, while on top it still has the company's Sense UI with seven home screen pages, social network integration and so on. What is going to make its debut in the HTC Wildfire is the new app-sharing widget, which will allow users to recommend apps that they like to their friends via various ways like email, text or social networks.

On the hardware side of things, the HTC Wildfire won't be as spectacular as the Desire, but then again, it isn't meant to be. It will sport a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive display, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, 3.5mm jack and microSD memory expansion. The processor inside will be a 528MHz Qualcomm one, which will provide some passable performance, we suppose.

The HTC Wildfire will arrive at European and Asian stores in Q3 at a still unannounced price, but we hope it would be truly affordable.
