    Not bad at all. They missed the ball though with all those colors and not pink because I could definitely see my girl using this. Still not bad for an entry level android.

    Hmmm… the Wildfire seems to be similar, if not better than my hero! If this is a low end budget phone like I’ve been reading then what does this make mine!?

    More importantly, technology is moving so quickly now. How crazy are the phones going ti be post-Evo? I’m not annoyed about the quick advancements. and how fast my phone has gone out of date, I won’t bring up the whole 2.1 issue again. I’m just looking forward to June/July time 2011 when I can upgrade. I’m feeling I could pick something up with as much power as most laptops! Here’s hoping…

    I loving this phone! I love the red! *sigh* its a shame tmobile couldn’t get phones like it. If it came out eariler and in the U.S. I would have gotten his phone instead of the cliq xt.

    Excellent specs. If Froyo 2.2 is supported on it with its JIT compiler, the CPU will be more than capable for most things.

    Looks like a short fat nexus one but colourful. I think htc sense should be a choice, cos I only like the clock.

    I like that the GSM standyby is shorter then the GSM talk time :)

    Over at engadget they list out a few new widgets and features that will be included with the wildfire.

    I wish these sort of things would be pushed out to other HTC phones. Right now it looks at though the official update to the hero won’t even come with friendstream. I say boo to that and if true will be adding that to the reasons I won’t go to the official update.
