We’ve known for a few weeks now that Telstra would be picking up the HTC Wildfire at some point this summer, but now an official date has been issued. Those in Australia will be able to pick up the handset starting August 24th, and it will be available on-contract as well as with a pre-paid plan. If you choose to go without the contract the phone will be on sale for 349 AUD.
The Wildfire, available in both “pure white” and “phantom black,” features a 3.2-inch QVGA display, 5MP camera, and Android 2.1. The phone will be exclusive to Telstra until November 15th.
