Virgin Mobile UK and T-Mobile UK have stepped up with confirmation that they’ll both be offering the new HTC Wildfire. The entry-level Android device will land on T-Mobile come June 14th, priced from free with a new, £20 ($29) per month two-year agreement.
Meanwhile Virgin Mobile are yet to confirm the exact launch date for their Wildfire, and nor have they confirmed pricing, but we’d imagine that the handset will be roughly the same as it is on T-Mobile and at around the same price. The smartphone has already shown up for SIM-free preorder at Expansys, priced at £249.99 ($357) and expected to arrive on July 26th.
The HTC Wildfire has a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen supporting multitouch, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth and UMTS/HSPA. It runs Android 2.1 complete with the latest version of HTC Sense, and includes a new Application Sharing app that makes recommending third-party software easier. More in our hands-on report.
