With a massive array of apps, a truly beautiful touchscreen and a slew of stellar specs, the HTC Wildfire is a smartphone that can really light up your life.
In the wake of the massive success of the Legend and Desire, HTC has become the go-to brand for Android mobile phones. And in the shape of the excellent HTC Wildfire it's not hard to see why.
As with all smartphones that feature Google's Android operating system, the Wildfire is brimming over with great apps which can be downloaded from the Android Market online software store. Plus with so many available for free, you're at liberty to change the functionality of your phone every day if you like.
What's more, to get you started Google has provided some great titles built-in to this phone, not least of which are YouTube and Facebook, which offer you endless entertainment and easy social networking on hte go respectively.
Elsewhere you'll find a great five megapixel camera, which is equipped with autofocus, LED flash and smile detection technology to help you get the best image possible. Plus, it's similarly adept at video recording too.
Other features of the Wildfire include the latest 2.1 version of Android, an expansive 3.1-inch touchscreen, Facebook, Flickr and Twitter integration, a Qualcomm 528Ghz processor to facilitate multi-tasking, A-GPS support and a digital compass for route-finding in unfamiliar locales.
HTC is now for many people at least the go-to phone maker for Android mobiles. The Wildfire, which was very favourably reviewed, burnishes that reputation further.
It's a more compact device than the Desire, which makes it prefect for slipping in your pocket and means it fits nicely in your hand. However, it still comes equipped with same 2.1 edition of Google's Android platform, so that buyers can expect the same kind of speedy smartphone experience that won the Desire so many admirers.
