Launched in Europe and Asia in the first half of this year, the HTC Wildfire will also be available in the US.
According to Mobile Burn, HTC has announced that the Android smartphone would “land on American regional carriers” before the end of 2010.
There’s no mention on exactly what carriers will offer the Wildfire, but since the word “regional” is there, it could be MetroPCS, Cricket, US Cellular, Cellular South and the likes.
The Wildfire currently runs Android 2.1, but an update to Froyo should be released later this year by HTC. The smartphone features a 3.2 inch QVGA (240 x 320) multi-touch capacitive display, Wi-Fi, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, and MicroSD card support. It’s not a high-end device, as you can see, but this means it’s affordable: about $300 off-contract.
