T-Mobile has today announced officially their plans for carrying the tiny yet powerful HTC Wildfire S, a mid-ranged device with aspirations for taking out the entire lower-tier of Android smartphone competitors. This palm-sized device will be available on August 3rd, 2011, and will run customers $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. This device will be running Android 2.3.x Gingerbread and will have a fabulous new version of HTC Sense for your Android enjoyment.
This device will be sold on contract with a 2-year agreement with qualifying “Classic” voice and data plan. For more information on what T-Mobile will be working with for data plans, head to our post entitled T-Mobile Value plans make data an overage-free zone. This device rolls out the gate with a neat little 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display and will have the same situation going on as the Euro version: one camera, on the back, at 5-megapixels large.
You can check out our full review of the HTC Wildfire S from a few weeks ago when Chris Davies got his hands on it for just about as early a look at it as you could possibly see. Now it’s on T-Mobile and all USA heck is breaking loose! You’ll be able to pick this device up in a couple of different color combinations, that being fully White at T-Mobile stores and in their online store, or Black at Sam’s Club, Walmart, and again at the online store at http://ww.t-mobile.com/.
This device is ready and raring to go up against the rest of the mid-range line T-Mobile has to offer, most recently the Samsung trio we’ve got reviewed up in the past couple weeks: Samsung Dart, Samsung Exhibit 4G, and the Samsung Gravity Smart. Will the HTC contender be able to take out its opponents? If the case is strong, the heart will prevail, HTC to the rescue!
