Little brother to the HTC Desire, the 3 HTC Wildfire is an update that downsizes on price but keeps most of the features that made the Desire so great. In fact, we'd go as far as to say it's one of the best value smartphones around. Smaller and lighter, the HTC Wildfire is a great little smartphone that packs a lot of punch.
The Wildfire hands all the power over to you - it even takes its name from a Facebook poll! Its innovative Sense user interface gives you complete customising control over up to seven homescreens, and their applications and widgets, and you'll get all the great customisation and control that you expect from any Android phone.
The Wildfire caters to your needs, especially if you're a fan of social networking! With Facebook, Twitter and Flickr loaded as standard, you can instantly keep updated on all the gossip from your family and friends. Found that new must-have app? Send it direct to your friends with an app-sharing widget. The Wildfire will even integrate your contacts to make getting in contact - by any method - even easier. You can even pin contacts to your homescreen, giving you instant communication at your fingertip. The 3G connection means you can effortlessly browse the web as you go.
With its Android 2.1 operating system, the Wildfire is compatible with Google Maps, and its in-built GPS means that this handy phone can help you out of a tight spot as a fully functional Sat Nav. It also boasts a 5 mega-pixel camera with smile detection, a music player and FM radio, and it is Wi-Fi enabled to allow you to connect to a hotspot or home network and browse the web without using any of your data allowance!
The feature-packed Three HTC Wildfire easily holds its own against other comparable handsets, and is by far the best value for money of any of the smartphones. If like us, you enjoy keeping up with all the latest news, gossip and photos from your friends, you will find this affordable gem practically irresistible!
