The HTC Wildfire is a mid-range touchscreen phone which runs on Google’s Android software (currently Android 2.1). It’s perhaps best described as a scaled down version of the HTC Desire in terms of both physical size, screen size and screen resolution.
While not as powerful, the HTC Wildfire retains a lot of the key features which made the Desire such a hit, such as a 5-Megapixel camera, stylish design and access to the Android Market. It’s aimed at buyers who want a decent touchscreen phone with access to apps but aren’t bothered about having the latest or most cutting-edge bit of kit.
The touchscreen of the HTC Wildfire measures 3.2-inches across and is capacitive, making it easier to navigate with your fingers. There’s also a touch-sensitive optical trackpad underneath the four menu keys which gives you an extra degree of control. The internal GPS unit means that you’ll be able to make good use of sat-nav and geo location apps like Google Maps and the HTC Wildfire also supports animated live wallpapers for extra customisation.
The HTC Wildfire is a 3G phone meaning you’ll be able to download apps and surf the web quickly and connect to Facebook and Twitter on the go. You can also connect to the web via Wi-Fi hotspots on the HTC Wildfire.
Music fans will be pleased to note that the HTC Wildfire supports a wide range of music file formats and comes with a 3.5mm jack which allows you to use your own headphones.
