HTC unwraps Wildfire Android 2.1 smartphone

Not on fire and certainly not wild

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

HTC has introduced yet another Android handset, this one clearly set to be pitched at the less well-heeled if the spec is anything to go by.

Dubbed Wildfire, the handset is an Android 2.1 offering, running the Google OS on a 528MHz Qualcomm processor and presenting it on a 3.2in, 240 x 320 capacitive touchscreen display.

Android is augmented with HTC's own Sense user interface, which will include a new widget to help users tell other users about good apps they've downloaded and make it easy for them to try the software out too.

Other specs are smartphone standard: GPS, dual-band HSDPA 3G, quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, 5Mp autofocus camera and Micro SDHC storage. The Wildfire comes with a 1300mAh battery good for up to eight-and-a-bit hours' talk time or 690 hours on standby, HTC claimed.

The Wildfire will be "broadly available" to customers in Europe and Asia during Q3. HTC didn't say how much it expects the phone to retail for. ®
