HTC Wildfire Brings Pre-Paid Android to Telstra



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.

  1. Oh Thank Heavens! I was worried sick about Jennifer. If it weren’t for twitter and friendstream, I wouldn’t know she’s ok.

  2. hahaha @John V

    I have a HTC Magic and now a Google NexusOne, so some sort of Android device for just over a year now. But I’m still asked “What phone’s that?” in public all the time (Last time was 3 days ago in the city).

    But! It’s happening much less as these sort of plans and phones roll out. And it’s been especially great seeing Telstra jump on-board because, despite their shitty customer service and questionable rates, they do have the biggest and best network by a long-shot.

    Opening up Androids Around every now and then reveals more and more brethren on the map each time. But we’re still very behind compared to the U.S.

  3. Well, according to Joseph, wood grilling is a sport! That must mean that I have an athletic body with all that bbq I’ve consumed!

  4. I don’t care how sweaty it is! That bbq sounds good

  5. at some point this summer?

    its the middle of winter here!

  6. Cool, hope it’s not locked to their network…

  7. That phone looks real good. I wish Verizon would pick up some of these Desire/Wildfire looking things aside from the Incredible.

  8. @Jared:
    On the one hand, it is great that Telstra are picking up this phone. However, the problem is that Telstra tend to pollute the phones with buggy firmware and lock the phone down.
