The HTC Wildfire, released in May, features a 528 MHz processor that yields incredible web browsing speeds and multi-tasking capabilities. Consumers enjoy the Android 2.1 operating system and LCD capacitive touch screen. The HTC Wildfire is also able to receive an OS upgrade to Adroid 2.2 (Froyo), further adding to its appeal. The 5 megapixel camera is also one of the impressive hardware features of the phone. The phone is stylish, feature rich, and surprisingly affordable, no doubt contributing to its success thus far.
With dimensions of 106.8x 60.4x 12mm, the phone will fit easily within in a pocket or handbag. The HTC Wildfire is relatively lightweight at 118 grams, so it is also comfortable to hold and use, especially with its soft-touch finish. The resolution of the screen is 240x 320, and capable of displaying 16M colours for superb display quality of photos and videos. Consumers can support numerous MP3s or applications with 32 GB of storage available, should they choose to utilise the microSD card slot.
The display possesses an advanced accelerometer to automatically adjust the phone from portrait to landscape. The phone also has a digital compass, proximity sensor and an ambient light sensor. Pinch-to-zoom resizing is also another feature that increases the usability factor of the Wildfire. The exceptional HTC Wildfire also comes equipped with Adobe Flash support for online videos and games, a feature which many popular smartphones lack. An FM Radio is also offered to consumers for their listening pleasure. The handset also has Bluetooth 2.1 to connect hands-free listening devices and connecting to other technology. File transfers can also be carried out by the micro USB port, whereby the handset can be connected to a computer.
Numerous social networking tools are available for the convenience of the consumer. A dedicated Facebook application is available so users can stay upto date with friends and family with the minimum of fuss. This application will show a callers Facebook status and also a reminder of the callers birthday when an incoming call is received. FriendStream, HTC peep for Twitter, video sharing for YouTube and photo sharing for Facebook, Twitter and Flickr are all part of the social media package provided. Numerous applications are available via Android Market, which include several different categories, so the sky is the limit in terms of versatility and everyday functionality.
The affordability of the HTC Wildfire may make you think that the manufacturer has included less features as a result, however this is certainly not the case. The versatility of the Android OS coupled with its capable hardware and great aesthetics mean the HTC Wildfire is a smartphone which ticks all the boxes, testament to its popularity.
