The new Wildfire S will be HTC's new entry level touchscreen smartphone, replacing the current Wildfire, which has been one of the more popular HTC Android phones around.

The Wildfire S is slightly thicker, a tad lighter and around 15 per cent faster. It comes with the same screen size at 3.2-inch but with twice the resolution (480x320 pixels).

HTC also upped the RAM to 512MB and the internal storage to 512MB. There's a five-megapixel camera with AF and flash, a 1230mAh battery which translates into lower talk time compared to its predecessor.

The Wildfire S also adds 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0 as well as the HTC Sense UI with Android Gingerbread but loses the FM radio it seems.

The arrival of the new Wildfire means that the old Wildfire can now be had for quite cheap; you can get it on (via Buymobilephones) with 100 minutes, 100 texts and unlimited internet for £15.32 on a two year contract with £50 cashback which brings the monthly price to around £13.
