HTC Wildfire Announced

HTC has announced the launch of a new Android based phone called the HTC Wildfire. The first and last time we heard of the Wildfire was when HTC ran a poll on a Facebook page to let users choose the name of the device.

‘Today’s social networks provide an essential forum for friendship with more than 400 million users many of whom are young adults actively sharing their lives with their friends through Facebook, said Florian Seiche, Vice President, HTC EMEA. ‘HTC Wildfire makes the HTC Sense experience available to young mobile users for the first time. It brings all your communications into one place, whether it’s through Facebook, Twitter, text messages, images or email, ensuring that you are never far away from the conversation and always close to your friends.

The HTC Wildfire has a 3.2 inch QVGA screen. The screen is capacitive touch as we normally expect on this class of smartphone. A 5 megapixel camera is found on the back and all the usual connectivity is thrown in there such as WiFi, Bluetooth as well as GPS for tracking your current location.

The OS running on the HTC Wildfire is Android 2.1 from Google [GOOG] and HTC has installed Sense UI on this device. The processor running on the smartphone is the Qualcomm MSM7225 running at 525MHz.

It is expected that the HTC Wildfire will launch in Q3 2010 across European and Asian markets.
