Canada: Virgin Mobile HTC Wildfire S may launch on July 8

We’ve known for quite a while that Virgin Mobile Canada will join Bell Mobility in launching the HTC Wildfire S. We’ve also assumed that it’s bound to happen soon, yet until today we haven’t heard anything about a possible release date.

According to people tipping MobileSyrup, the HTC Wildfire S will become available from Virgin Mobile in Canada on July 8 – that’s this coming Friday.

The no-contract price will be $199.99, as we found out last week, and as the above leaked image of a Virgin Mobile system seems to confirm.

The HTC Wildfire S is a rather capable little device for the price. It represents HTC’s current lower-midrange offering, and has features that mostly beat the competition. However, traditionally, it’s also been a bit more expensive than the competition. So it’s good to see Virgin Mobile offering it for rather cheap, and also $50 cheaper than Bell.

We’ll let you know when it’s finally available.
