Description

The HTC Wildfire is an Android smartphone released throughout Europe and Asia in the third quarter of 2010. Cited as an upgrade from the HTC Hero, the Wildfire hosts the same 528 MHz CPU, 5MP camera and 3.2” capacitive touchscreen display, but features an improved version of the HTC Sense UI with greater social-networking integration. You can now invite friends via a social network to download an app. Plus when you make a call, your friend’s facebook data (pic, status update, birthday) will automatically pop up. In addition, the Wildfire’s Sense UI lacks the 3D effects found on the Desire, which means improved CPU responsiveness and overall performance. Added to that, the new Friend Stream functionality allows you to view all your friend data from Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr right on the same screen.
