HTC Wildfire Heading to Virgin Mobile UK

Just yesterday a new Android OS smartphone was announced called the HTC Wildfire. The Wildfire is a budget handset that has slightly lower specs than the high end phones such as a slower Qualcomm processor running at 525MHz rather than the Snapdragon 1GHz chips we see in the high end phones.

Virgin Mobile in the UK has announced today that it will be offering the HTC Wildfire on it’s network in the UK. The message came from the official Virgin Media Twitter account where the company announced it is to get the new Wildfire smartphone, but prices are to be announced at a later date.

Right now we can speculate that the handset will be free, or very cheap on quite low plans such as the £20/month or £25/month contracts. We also expect a PAYG version will be launched also on the network.

Other technical specs on the HTC Wildfire include a 3.2 inch QVGA touchscreen along with a camera capable of captuing 5 megapixel images. The camera has a flash as well as autofocus.

For connectivity the phone has 802.11b/g WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. For storage a microSD card slot can be used and internal memory on the phone provides 384MB RAM and 512MB Flash.

When Virgin push out a press release with pricing details, we’ll update the site here.
