The original HTC Wildfire is one of the many budget Google Android phones we saw in 2010. The HTC Wildfire S is no super phone; in fact, the specifications are pretty unthrilling.
The cute HTC Wildfire S does get some minor enhancements with a 320-by-480 HVGA 3.2-inch display (the previous generation had a 320-by-240 QVGA display). The Wildfire S also runs Gingerbread-which I'm pleased about and has a 5-megapixel camera.
What the HTC Wildfire S lacks in specifications, it makes up in design. The small phone (59x101x12mm) feels great in hand with its smooth, rounded corners and solid build. It comes in three attractive colors, too: a light purple, stone gray and black.
Unfortunately, the Wildfire S does not get a speed boost in this upgrade. It retains a 600MHz processor, which is fine for a bit of multitasking and short video watching, but I wish HTC would have given the Wildfire a little more juice this round.
The Wildfire S will be heading to Europe and Asia in Q2 2011. Find the latest HTC Wildfire S deals.
