Three takes stock of HTC Wildfire S

Mobile phone network Three is now selling the budget Android sequel to last year’s HTC Wildfire, the Wildfire S mobile phone and on contracts starting from £25 a month.

HTC’s Wildfire S is the updated low-cost Google mobile OS driven Wildfire from 2010, along with being one of the smallest handsets in their arsenal at 10.13cm long and 5.94cm wide.

HTC’s Wildfire S ships with a 3.2-inch 320x480 touch screen, whilst being powered by a 600MHz CPU, with 512MB of internal storage and a 5megapixel camera with a flash, along with Android ‘Gingered’ 2.3 and the HTC Sense UI.

The original Wildfire came with a 3.2-inch 240x320 touch screen, with just a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7225 chipset and the same 5MP camera - only with the older Android ‘Éclair’ 2.1, which was upgradable to 2.2.

Three is carrying the HTC Wildfire S on their text 500 £25 a month tariff, with 500 minutes, a 5,000 text message bundle and a 1GB data allowance. The phone is also around on the networks ‘One Plan’, with 2,000 minutes, a 5,000 text message bundle and a truly unlimited data allowance for £30 a month.

One Mobile Ring already took stock of the HTC Wildfire S at the end of March, where we published and hands-on walkthrough in images here and an initial thoughts review of the handset here.
