HTC Desire S and Wildfire S debut at MWC 2011

HTC has unveiled new editions of its best-selling Desire and Wildfire phones, amid the predictable flurry of Android powered devices debuting at the Mobile World Congress (MWC).

Both handsets will run the latest Gingerbread version of Google’s Android operating system out of the box and are due to hit shelves during the second quarter.

The Desire S keeps the same 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen display and 1GHz processor as its immediate predecessor, the Desire HD. There’s also a five-megapixel camera on board, a front-facing VGA snapper for video calling.

Perhaps the biggest departure from earlier Desire iterations is the phone’s aluminium unibody construction that takes more than a few design cues from the gorgeous HTC Legend.

The Wildfire S updates the budget Android blower with a beefier 600MHZ processor and an upgrade to a HVGA screen, although this retains the 3.2-inch dimensions of the debut Wildfire’s display.

Other key features, meanwhile, include a five-megapixel camera with LED flash and expandable memory via microSD card support.
