HTC Wildfire Now Available On £12 Contracts!

The HTC Wildfire may have been launched only a few weeks ago, this hasn't prevented 3 UK from making it available at its lowest price yet with a half decent package.

Buymobilephones (opens in new tab) is offering the phone, which is a smaller version of the HTC Desire, for £12 a month with an initial price of £19.99; the previous lowest contract price was £15 per month.

The package on 3 UK includes 300 free minutes or texts, 500MB mobile internet, 5000 3-to-3 minutes, Free Skype and Windows Live Messenger on a two year contract.

The total cost of ownership over that period is £307.99 which is only slightly more expensive than the SIM Free model.

The phone comes with Android OS v2.1 (soon to be upgraded to FroYo), a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5-megapixel camera, an optical trackball, an accelerometer and more.

Note that this is a clearance item which means that availability is extremely limited.
