I miss my HTC phone, still have it, just don’t use it anymore, the quality of their products is just excellent, but as of now I’m happy with my Samsung Galaxy S Captivate now though I might be persuaded to use the new Wildfire instead. Though it might be a step down with lower resolution and smaller screen..

HTC announced that the new HTC Wildfire smartphone will be made available through multiple regional North American carriers beginning in Q4 2010. With Android 2.1, and the hallmark HTC Sense experience, the HTC Wildfire smartphone offers unsurpassed access to social networks, mobile applications and popular Google services. Combining an intuitive interface and small size, the HTC Wildfire smartphone can go anywhere with anyone.

"The HTC Sense experience has changed the way millions of people interface with their smartphone for the better, making it more fun, productive and personal than ever before," said Jason Mackenzie, president, HTC Americas. "With the HTC Wildfire smartphone, we are bringing the people-focused HTC Sense experience to customers looking for a compact, easy-to-learn smartphone that is still powerful enough to meet the needs of even advanced smartphone users."

The HTC Wildfire smartphone helps "bring your friends to you" by employing the highly intuitive HTC Sense experience that makes people, rather than technology, its prime focus. The HTC Wildfire smartphone includes the Leap feature, to make accessing any of the seven home screens quick and easy, Friend Stream for bringing multiple social networking feeds into one easy-to-follow string and an improved People widget designed to easily organize multiple groups of contacts. With Android 2.1 onboard, the HTC Wildfire smartphone offers access to over 70,000 applications in the Android Market, a number that grows with every passing day. With the new App Sharing widget, users can not only let friends and family know about favorite applications, they can make it easy for them to find and download those applications as well. In addition, the HTC Wildfire has a 5 megapixel camera with auto focus and flash that captures outstanding images, while fast 3G connectivity makes sharing those moments with friends and family quick and easy. The HTC Wildfire smartphone makes it possible to go from shooting an image to sharing it online, whether via Flickr, Facebook, Twitter or e-mail, in one step.
