Press Release   •   Feb 22, 2011 23:51 GMT

HTC has created a number of handsets that cater to specific needs. If you are looking to enjoy more from Windows, you will get it with the HD7. If you are looking for a Windows 7 phone that comes complete with business features, you will find it in the 7 Pro. If you are looking for a smartphone that will make you enjoy more from apps, the first thing that comes to mind is the Wildfire. However, since this phone was released in May 2010, there are up-to-date features that we wish this phone came with. Now, you will enjoy these features with the HTC Wildfire S.

At first glance at the two versions, you will immediately notice the aesthetic differences. The older version has a circular optical track pad found on the bottom of the phone’s face. The newer version does not. If you take a closer look at the two phones, you will notice a slight change in weight and dimensions. The original version is heavier at 118 grams compared to the S version that weighs in at only 105 grams. The dimensions of the Wildfire are 106.8 high, 60.4 mm wide, and 12 mm thick. The S version is 101.3 mm high, 59.4 mm wide, and 12.4 mm thick.

When it comes to display capabilities, both versions come with 3.2 inch TFT capacitive touch screen that can display as much as 256 thousand colors. Both have accelerometers for auto rotation, and both have touch-sensitive controls. However, the HTC Wildfire S has something better. It has a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels compared to its predecessor’s 240 x 320 pixels.

When it comes to hardware, you will enjoy more power from the S version. The older version came with a 528 MHz processor, 384 MB of RAM, and 512 MB of ROM. With its more up-to-date version, you will enjoy more from a 600 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 512 MB of ROM.

The S is all about the latest software. Its predecessor came preinstalled with the Android 2.1 OS (Éclair). The S comes with the latest Android 2.3 OS (Gingerbread). This will allow you to enjoy faster browsing, smoother multi-tasking and better web fidelity. This will make you enjoy more from the HTC Wildfire S.

The HTC Wildfire S is the upgraded version of the HTC Wildfire.
