MWC 2011: HTC Wildfire S, Meant to Bring Gingerbread to the Masses?

During today’s HTC press conference at Mobile World Congress 2011, in Barcelona, the Taiwanese giant unveiled the successor to a very popular handset last year, the Wildfire. The newcomer is the HTC Wildfire S, that you can see below and that we expect to debut with a very low price point, that makes it very appealing.

HTC Wildfire S is a very compact device, measuring 10.13cm in length and 5.94cm in width and also including a 3.2 inch HVGA screen. This affordable phone will most likely bring Android 2.3 to the people who want to spend less cash on a smartphone, but still get access to the goodies. Here’s the specs list for the device:

  • CPU: 600MHz
  • Display: 3.2 inch touchscreen, 320 x 480 pixels
  • Memory: 512MB ROM, 512MB RAM, microSD slot (SD 2.0 compatible)
  • Camera: 5MP, autofocus, flash
  • Connectivity: quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, HSPA/WCDMA, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Battery: 1230 mAh, 360 hours of GSM talks

The phone weighs 105 grams and we’ll get to play with it in Barcelona ASAP.
