HTC Wildfire now in red on 3 Mobile


HTC’s Wildfire is now available on 3 in an exclusive red colour. For just £20 per month you get 500 minutes, unlimited texts, 500MB data and all the benefits of being with 3 such as free Skype-to-Skype calls.

The HTC Wildfire is essentially a mini HTC Desire – our most popular phone. Just 13mm shorter than the Desire and with a lower resolution screen (240×320), the Wildfire should offer outstanding value for money. It runs on Android 2.1 and it has the flexibility to download new apps, access the Internet with speed (via HSDPA) and enjoy your favourite media wherever you go. The optical trackpad and HTC Sense UI offer a great user experience and the 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen can be used in landscape or portrait mode.

The 5 megapixel camera takes excellent pictures, it has auto-focus, smile detection and an LED flash. Internal memory can be expanded up to 32GB with a microSD card. Staying connected with your contacts has never been easier with the Wildfire. Texts, emails and instant messages can all be displayed in a chat-like, continuous view. The Wildfire will also stream wall updates from Facebook, Flickr and Twitter to ensure you stay up to date with the gossip wherever you may go.

A new feature for the Wildfire is the ability to rate and share downloaded apps with your contacts, which is a great idea. Built-in applications include Google Search, YouTube, Picasa, Gmail, Gtalk and Google Maps. A variety of connectivity options comprise of quad-band roaming for use overseas, Wi-Fi for hotspot locations and GPS for guided navigation. The HTC Wildfire is a compact (107 x 60 x 12mm) user friendly smartphone that will continue to evolve as new applications are released.
