Although HTC said the Wildfire would be launched in the third quarter of the year (you know: July, August or September), more and more sources point to a June release.
The latest details about Wildfire’s launch come from France, where Frandroid has it that the new Android 2.1 smartphone will be out in June, indeed.
As for the handset’s price, the French website says the HTC Wildfire will cost €299 unlocked – more than we’ve previously heard (€250). Now, €300 is a bit too much for a smartphone with a QVGA display, even if the Wildfire also has a 5MP camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, Sense UI and lots of other features.
The HTC Wildfire will only be out in Europe and Asia, but HTC might consider making a version of it for North America, too.
