Excerpt: Aaron reviews T-Mobile's newest Android phone, the HTC Wildfire S . It's no HTC Sensation 4G, but with a 600 MHz processor, 3.2-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 2.1, it's a nice little mid-range phone.
Excerpt: Aaron goes in-depth with the HTC Wildfire S , T-Mobile's newest Android smartphone. Announced at Mobile World Congress earlier in the year, the Wildfire S has a 600 MHz Qualcomm CPU, 3.2-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with flash, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 2.1.
Conclusion: I really wanted to like the HTC Wildfire S. Its compact, cute design seemed like the perfect antidote to the 4.5" monsters everyone seems to be focused on. But at the end of the day, it was just too much of a compromise.
Summary: In short, the review conclusion is clear: the HTC Wildfire S is a smartphone which, despite its small screen, deserves at least a try. And besides, you can get it for free with a $100 mail-in rebate and new, 2-year contract.
