With all the great Android handsets T-Mobile has been rumored to get later this year (Sensation, Double Shot) it seems as if they have the whole “high-end” market covered. So what’s next for Magenta? Well, T-Mo News has uncovered some pics of HTC’s latest foray into entry/mid level phones, the Wildire S, also known as the HTC Marvel (pictured on the left). This phone seems like it could be geared specifically for those who can’t really rationalize a $200 price tag for some of the higher end, dual-core phones.

Visually, The HTC Marvel looks great. Almost like a smaller, baby version of the Nexus One (still the sexiest phone in existence). Specs include an 600Mhz processor which should be more than capable of pushing the 320×480 pixels on a smaller 3.2-inch screen, 5MP camera, 512MB of both internal memory and RAM and a newer version of Sense (possibly Sense 2.0). Also, HTC has been on top of Gingerbread updates as of late so you can expect the phone to ship with Android 2.3 as well.

For added measure, here’s a video of Rob taking a look at the phone at MWC in case you wanted to see how smoothly the phone runs.

Looks like T-Mo might go out with a bang (assuming they get bought up by AT&T). With the color variants, and its almost cute, smaller form factor, I think the HTC Marvell should do quite well when it releases on T-Mobile later this summer.
