The little HTC phone that could, the HTC Wildfire S is making its way to T-Mobile as the HTC Marvel. HTC Desire S’ little brother was last seen at MWC, showing us that even low-end phones like these can perform like a champ. The HTC Wildfire S packs the following specifications:
- 3.2-inch touch screen with 320 x 480 resolution
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- Qualcomm 600 MHz CPU
- ROM: 512 MB and microSD slot
- RAM: 512 MB
- 5 megapixel color camera with auto focus and flash
- 1230 mAh battery
Don’t let the small size and moderate specs fool you, this little bugger feels as snappy as most modern phones.
In a world of Motorola Atrix 4Gs and T-Mobile G2xs, buying the HTC Wildfire S might seem like riding around in a scooter when you can drive a Ferrari. But phones like the HTC Wildfire S are not aimed at us Android hardcore fans. They’re meant for those that are most likely upgrading from dumbphones and don’t want a $200-sized hole on their bank account. The HTC Wildfire S is more than enough to fulfill the needs of those people that want the smartphone experience and none of the extra flashy and gimmicky stuff. You know, the kind of people that probably checks Facebook a few times a day, makes a couple of calls and texts a lot, and that’s it. They’re not interested in over-clocking, rooting, modding, or even downloading ASTRO File Manager.
