HTC Wildfire almost a mini HTC Desire

HTC has specifically introduced the new Wildfire edition for the European users. Also a relatively affordable phone complete with the HTC Sense interface slicked over the top. You might wonder why you should invest in this. Well maybe for the new app-sharing widget that works on Twitter, texts or email all; something that was noticeably lacking in the previous handsets. Of course some say that this new offering is merely a smaller version of the popular Desire.

The specs are impressive; it has a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, 5MP camera with auto focus and LED flash, Bluetooth, GPS/AGPS, Wi-Fi, and a 3.5mm jack. ROM is 512MB, RAM 384MB, and it runs on a Qualcomm MSM7225 528 MHz processor. Memory will however change on the upload of various apps and media. Battery life is pretty respectable too with an average of 1300mAh.

Many people are calling it a Desire mini, but it does not do justice to the set with the length only 13mm shorter than the original HTC Desire. Needless to mention from all the other angles the measurements are but the same. The display is QVGA and the OS is Android; now it has been proved again and again that Android and QVGA displays do not work very well with each other and with a screen as large as that of the Wildfire, we really do not have many expectations about picture quality.

Europe and Asia are probably going to get HTC Wildfire somewhere in the 3rd quarter this year. According to the available information it will be initially available in four different colors and the price will be somewhere around 300 euro. It is expected to run Android 2.1. Nothing is confirmed yet though.
