Vodafone said: "The HTC Wildfire follows the success of the HTC Desire, offering HTC Sense and Android 2.1 in a more compact device and at a more affordable price. The Wildfire also features HTC’s Friend Stream, which brings together and displays content from your favourite social networks, including Twitter, Facebook and Flickr".
The HTC Wildfire has a 3.2-inch, QVGA capacitive touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, optical joystick, and a 1300mAh battery. There's a Qualcomm 528MHz processor, 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS, and it runs Android 2.1 in the guise of the HTC Sense user interface. Check out our hands on photos here.
As soon as we get confirmation from Vodafone about price and dates we'll post it up.
