HTC Wildfire unboxing video

Wildfire-main We first Heard about the HTC Wildfire last month and James was lucky enough to be invited to the HTC press briefing and get his hands on the device even getting time to review a preview video.

Since then the Wildfire has been gathering interest and many now regard this as being the HTC Desire’s baby brother and when you see the HTC Wildfire it’s probably easy to understand why.

The HTC Wildfire is smaller than the Desire, having a 3.2″ QVGA display. There’s also a slower CPU but othe features are similar such as Android 2.1 with Sense UI, 5 Megapixel camera, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. On the face of it the HTC Wildfire might seem like HTC’s attempt to win the lower end of the Android handset market and at a little under £230 they seem to have the price about right but have not overly compromised the specification.

We’ll have a full review for you over the next week or so, we’re going to do something a little different with this review so watch this space! For now I hope you enjoy seeing a little more of the HTC Wildfire in the video below. I’ll also have a more detailed demo video for you soon too.
