HTC Wildfire in Black from Orange

Black HTC_Wildfire_FRONT_detail_f3120053

While I was pottering around the Orange website today I stumbled upon the HTC Wildfire in Black as coming soon. Now, although the Wildfire has been around for some time now I have not seen it in black anywhere before and I kind of like the look of it.

As listed as coming soon to pay monthly the device will clearly be free, however as of yet there are no contract prices on the site. I am hoping this one may be a bargain.

Anyway, I just thought I would point it out in case you are in the market for a nice little Android device. You can read our full review of the HTC Wildfire here.

Mac App Store

Screen shot 2011-01-07 at 08.13.54

If you use a Mac you may want to double check you are running the latest version of Mac OS as the App Store is now available to use.

The store works much the same as it does on an iPhone or iPad making downloads quick and simple. There are both paid and free applications available and apps are stored either in categories, featured or top charts.

My personal favorite i have downloaded is Twitter for Mac. It is not too fancy but works like a dream. Classic games like Flight Control and Angry Birds are also in there.

If you have not downloaded you had better. Enjoy.
