HTC Wildfire coming to multiple regional North American carriers

HTC will bring their entry-level Android phone to North America later this year, according to a new press release this morning. This Android 2.1 phone features a 528 MHz processor, 3.2 inch QVGA display, 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash, and weighs in at just 4.16 ounces.

No carriers were specifically named, but the press release said “multiple regional North American carriers” which could mean anyone. We might see the Wildfire appear up in Canada or it could come to a regional U.S. carrier like Cellular South.

I’ve played with the Wildfire at a Vodofone store when I was in Berlin and I was pretty impressed with the design, but I think there are better entry-level options available like the LG Optimus (coming soon to Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular). From my experience with the Motorola Charm, most Android apps do not play well with the QVGA (240 x 320) display.

For a complete overview of the HTC Wildfire visit HTC’s official product page.

Update: According to a post on CNET, the HTC Wildefire is now available on Alltel Wireless for $29.99 with a two-year service agreement and mail-in rebate.

    that device is so underpowered i dont know why they insist on selling it. Same specs as my old htc hero which could barley make phone calls when i upgraded it to 2.1.

      well, I have the wildfire. sure, it’s not the fastest phone on the market, but the lags are really just occasional. it works surprisingly well.

    This must be a typo:Android 2.1????????????????????????

    HTC doesn’t release phones with older versions of Android ok. This phone will get the quickest updates and all of the new Android versions because HTC rocks! HTC always updates all of their phones, the Evo Incredible, 2 whole phones are the proof of that
