HTC has launched a new, budget priced smartphone, as it looks to repeat the success it has had with high-end Android phones with a lower end device using Google's mobile platform.
A teenage audience is being targeted by the HTC Wildfire and its smaller size and less sophisticated hardware specification should win it some fans.
Standout specs include a 528MHz processor, 384MB of RAM inside, together with a five megapixel camera. HTC has also endowed the Wildfire with Wi-Fi connectivity, along with HSDPA for mobile internet access and GPS for browsing.
Version 2.1 of Android is on board and, as with the Desire and the Legend, the Wildfire has HTC's well received Sense interface, complete with useful social networking service FriendStream and other tweaks to Google's base operating system.
HTC has disclosed that it will be getting the Wildfire out to European users by the third quarter of the year. Details on pricing and network availability will be made clear closer to its official release.
