HTC has finally announced the launch of the much awaited mid-range Android phone, the HTC Wildfire in India. The phone is an upgrade to HTC's current mid range offering in India, the HTC Tattoo.
The Wildfire features a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen capable of QVGA resolution. A 528 Mhz processor takes care of the number crunching bit. It has 348MB of RAM and 512 MB of ROM that should translate into a decent performance. The phone has a relatively powerful 1350mAH battery that should offer decent backup time under moderate usage. The imaging bit is taken care of by a 5MP camera with LED flash. Music lovers can heave a sigh of relief thanks to the 3.5mm jack. Connectivity features are abundant too with the phone supporting USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well. Other features include support for FM radio and a digital compass. The phone has an optical joystick for navigating through the menu. As expected, it has a microSD card slot to expand its limited memory.
The phone has been priced at Rs. 16,590 and is now available at your neighbourhood HTC reseller.
HTC has tied up with Reliance GSM to offer its subscribers a plan wherein all its subscribers upgrading to Wildfire will be eligible to avail 500MB worth of free data usage every month for the first six months of usage.
