HTC Wildfire in the flesh

We were able to get a short hands-on with HTC’s newest Android phone in the market, the HTC Wildfire. It’s the super-upgraded version of the HTC Tattoo and already runs on Android 2.1 (Eclair) with capability to upgrade to 2.2 later this year.

The HTC Wildfire looks like a mini-version of the HTC Desire with Nexus One’s buttons. The only physical button is the trackpad while the dedicated buttons are embedded on the touch screen display.

There’s a 5 megapixel camera at the back with a built-in LED flash beside it.

Here is the HTC Wildfire side-by-side with the HTC Desire.

HTC Wildfire Specs:

  • Qualcomm MSM 7225 528MHz processor
  • Android™ 2.1 (Éclair) with HTC Sense™
  • 3.2” QVGA Capacitive touch screen (240 x 320) with pinch-to-zoom capability

We heard from the distributor that the retail price of Php15,500 might be increased to around Php17,500 soon. So if you really want to have this phone, better act fast.
