Three (3) have today announced that their network will be carrying the attractive HTC Wildfire budget smartphone in the near future.
Looking something like a HTC Desire “Mini”, the Wildfire features many of the same features as the smartphone elite. Running HTC’s excellent SENSE UI over Android 2.1, it features multiple pinch-to-zoom homescreens, a 5MP camera with LED flash and the same 528Mhz processor that powered the HTC Hero.
It’s one noticeable shortcoming other than it’s now slightly aged processor is it’s screen, a nicely sized capacitive number at 3.2 inches across, but only capable of QVGA resolutions.
Sylvia Chind, Head of Branded Devices at Three said”It’s great to be adding the HTC Wildfire to our ever growing Android range. The HTC Wildfire brings together your communications platforms, making sure you never miss an update, message or tweet. When staying in touch on the move a strong 3G network like ours is necessary. Pairing this affordable Android phone with our network continues to give our customers great smartphone choices. We’ll be announcing dates and pricing shortly.”
No pricing from Three or release date as yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
