We’ve known that the HTC Wildfire S was going to be eventually launched by US Cellular ever since June, but it was only last month when the carrier finally decided to announce the diminutive smartphone. And even then it gave no clear indication of when the handset would be available to buy.
Well, the wait is over (in case you were actually waiting for the Wildfire S to be added to US Cellular’s lineup). The Wildfire S can now be yours for free (after a $100 mail-in rebate) with either a Belief Plan or a two-year contract. A data plan is also required.
The Wildfire S is only out online at this point. If for some reason you want to get one from a US Cellular store, you’ll have to wait until this Friday, October 21.
The HTC Wildfire S is a lower-midrange Android offering running Gingerbread with HTC Sense and having a 5 MP camera with LED flash and video recording support, a 3.2-inch 480×320 touchscreen, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, a 600 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 512 MB of ROM, Bluetooth 2.1, microSD card support (with a 2 GB card preinstalled), a 3.5 mm headset jack, and a 1,230 mAh battery.
