Here is what US Cellular says:

Get the HTC Wildfire STM to keep you at the center of your social world. Featuring AndroidTM 2.3 (Gingerbread) and HTC SenseTM, the HTC Wildfire S brings together all the different ways to communicate with your friends and family (calls, text messages and status updates) all in one place, quickly and easily. A 5 MP camera with flash and video recording lets you capture every moment in detail, so you can quickly upload and share your most memorable moments.

This is definitely a ‘mid-range’ phone in terms of performance, featuring a 600MHz single core CPU, 512MB RAM, and support for up to a 32GB micro-SD card with 2GB included.

The phone itself is very small, with a 3.2″ 320 x 480 pixel screen. The screen is protected with a Gorilla Glass display. The 3.2″ screen is just slightly larger than my Droid Pro, but without a keyboard the device is quite small. Side-by-side shots with an iPhone 4 show that the Wildfire is ~0.75″ smaller in height, and weighs an ounce less (~4 ounces total).

The WildFire has gotten some solid reviews, which have noted excellent call quality, solid performance for a phone in this category, and a very usable camera. The portability – and budget price – are certainly not a bad thing either. If you are in the market for a budget Android phone this is definitely worth checking out.

Head to US Cellular and check out the HTC Wildfire S!

As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
