We have some good news for US consumers now, as HTC has announced that they will be bringing the popular Wildfire handset to the US, but it won’t be coming with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box.
As reported from BGR, the Wildfire is going to be exactly the same as it’s European counterpart and is apparently due for release during the 4th quarter of this year – according to HTC.
Specs of the compact device include a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, a 528MHz processor with 384MB RAM and 512MB ROM, a 5 megapixel camera, and the usual bluetooth, WiFi and GPS offerings. As we mentioned above, the Wildfire will still release with Android 2.1 and the old version of Sense UI. No word on a possible upgrade to Android 2.2 Froyo yet either.
If you’re interested in picking this up, you can read the full press release over at BGR. We’ll let you know once pricing details are available.
