HTC Wildfire S

Last updated: Apr 14th, 2011.

An update to the original HTC Wildfire, the HTC Wildfire S provides key updates to a phone targeted towards phone seekers desiring a small, simple, affordable, yet attractive smartphone experience. The Wildfire S looks like a miniature version of the HTC-made Nexus One but its specs are more in line with a mid-range device.

The Wildfire S has a 3.2-inch screen with 320 by 480 pixel resolution. It's only 4-inches tall, 2.5-inches wide, less than half an inch thick, and 3.7 ounces, making it nice and compact for those who prefer small phones that fit more subtly in their pocket or purse.

The 600 MHz processor and 1230 mAh battery are on the lower powered end of the Android Phone line, but this phone is going for the every-man rather than attempting to be a multimedia powerhouse. However it also comes with a 5MP camera, 3.5mm headset jack, amd MicroSD slot, making it more than capable for the typical smartphone user.
