HTC Wildfire Section Added

HTC Wildfire Section Added

The Wildfire – the Desire’s baby brother – was unveiled earlier in the year by HTC. It sports a 3.2″ QVGA capacitive touchscreen, 384MB RAM and a 528MHz processor among the expected specifications of a cute, pocket-friendly Android device that fits a low budget. HTC’s Wildfire (orignally codenamed ‘Buzz’) will run Eclair 2.1 with Sense and should be available to you soon.

In anticipation of its release and the development-related interest behind the device, we’ve gone ahead and given the Wildfire its own space on the site. The Android Development board and other traditional topics will be added once the public has got a hold of the phone, but you can visit the new section here.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above.
