    About two months ago, we started hearing rumors that HTC's mid-to-low-range Wildfire S might be interested in making its way over to T-Mobile. It certainly wouldn't make many waves when it arrived, but there's always room for a solid value-priced option to balance out all the bleeding-edge handsets on the horizon. At the time, that was nothing but a rumor, with a blurrycam image of the phone to go along with it. Thanks to the publication of some recent FCC documentation, we have our first sliver of evidence that points to there being some truth in that rumor. Early this morning, the FCC ...

    Get ready for some new additions to HTC's lineup on T-Mobile; a recently-uncovered job posting has confirmed that T-Mobile is planning an event to launch three new HTC smartphones on June 8. The posting is eliciting those with a knack for smartphones to help the company show off these three unnamed HTC models at an event taking place in Houston, TX. We learned a couple weeks back that T-Mobile was planning to launch the Sensation 4G on June 8, so that's likely to be the highlight of this event. Heck, there have been signs of a June 8 launch for the Sensation going back to April, making its ...

    We all love source codes manufacturers publish because the community can take a look inside, report bugs for future version improvements, get inspiration and bits, extract stuff to make it available and all the good things a source can bring. HTC has released the sources for the Droid Incredible 2, Wildfire S and Desire HD. The Verizon Droid Incredible 2 is basically the HTC Incredible S -- which saw its own source made public already. The HTC Wildfire S is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 2.1 and the Desire HD already had its own source being published but this time it's the ...

    Despite being headquartered in neighboring Taiwan, HTC has had a minimal presence in China up until recently, with the world's largest market usually being denied cutting-edge handsets. That has started to change recently, first with a rebranded Incredible S, and now, it seems, with the Wildfire S -- apparently headed to China Telecom -- and flagship HTC Sensation, which appears destined for China Mobile. These models will likely receive slight makeovers and new model numbers for these Chinese operators, although specs and basic functionality should remain nearly identical. The fact that ...

    Together with all the other S devices -- Desire S and Incredible S -- HTC has also launched the Wildfire S with the occasion of this year's Mobile World Congress and rumor has it it will be part of T-Mobile's line-up. According to TmoNews, the Wildfire S, also codenamed HTC Marvel might be part of T-Mobile's portfolio of Android smartphones. The Wildfire S features a 3.2-inch HVGA 480 x 320 display, packs a 600MHz CPU with 512MB of RAM and ROM and it looks to be a sweet but low-end, budget Android smartphone, follow-up to the original Wildfire. With the HTC Sensation 4G already in line and ...

    We just saw HTC's Wildfire S pass through the FCC certification process, this time with the added support for AT&T's 3G and GSM frequencies, indicating the device may be headed to AT&T's network soon. It has been available for pre-order from various European sources, but is not yet released. Running a 600MHz CPU paired with 512MB RAM and Android Gingerbread, the device comes equipped to run the latest apps, but perhaps not the more processor-intensive ones. With a 3.2-inch HVGA 480x320 display and 512MB ROM, this smartphone fits squarely into the budget category. WCDMA 1900/850 and GSM ...

    The HTC 7 Pro is known as the HTC Arrive in the US thanks to Sprint -- as well as its CDMA support -- and the device looks to be landing soon at Cellular South together with the HTC Desire II -- basically the Desire S -- and the Wildifre S. The information comes from a screen grab of what looks to be the carrier's system in which the three devices are listed. Calling the Desire S the Desire II is nothing out of the ordinary -- just remember the HTC Incredible S is called the Incredible II with Verizon -- which makes us wonder why the Wildfire S remained non-renamed. A bigger -- and ...

    The last time we got an update on HTC's Wildfire S, a lower-end Android handset we were able to take a look at during the Mobile World Congress, pre-orders were being accepted for the phone in anticipation of a late May release date. There may be a chance for the phone to arrive even earlier than that, as Vodafone in the UK has just added the phone to its site, labeled "coming soon". While the Wildfire S may have some hardware specs that don't measure up to other Android models, we came away with a positive impression of the phone. Despite only packing a 600MHz processor, we found the ...

    For those of you with an HTC Incredible S, myTouch 3G Slide, or Wildfire, today is a good day for you! HTC has released the kernel source code for these devices as opensource. With the code to the kernel and drivers developers and tinkerers can start building custom ROMs which can make the smartphones go faster, batteries last longer, and who knows what other sorts of cool stuff! But if you're the kind of person that would never run a custom ROM on your phone, it's good news for you, too! The more sets of eyes looking at the source code, the more likely it is that bugs will be found and ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S II Mini, the smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy S follow-up the Korean manufacturer launched at this year's MWC, is set to arrive to UK on carrier Three. The Gingerbread powered 3.7-incher is set to arrive in April with a 1.4GHz processor, five-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing webcam, WiFi N and GPS. June looks to be the time to look for the Nokia X7 which has been cancelled for AT&T but the eight-megapixel device with OLED display looks like will be there in the U.K. So is the Samsung Galaxy Pro (mid-April), Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc ...

    Some of the smartphone tweakers over at the XDA-Developers forum have gotten their hands on a copy of the ROM for the upcoming HTC Wildfire S, giving us a full system dump of the phone's build of Android Gingerbread and the latest HTC Sense. While we're still waiting for the Wildfire S, these files may prove valuable to users interested in getting the software running on similar hardware, especially with that new version of Sense to play around with. This build comes from the ChinaMobile version of the Wildfire S. Look for the Wildfire S to land in Europe sometime during the next few ...

    HTC have launched a total number of five devices with the occasion of this year's Mobile World Congress and, while they didn't unveil anything huge, the Taiwanese manufacturer was the only one to present such a huge portfolio of new devices. Our friends over at Clove.co.uk already have the HTC Desire S on pre-order. The handset will cost you £406.80 (approximately $659) unlocked and the first stock is expected to arrive early April. The device sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, 1.1GB of ROM, 3.7-inch WVGA screen, five-megapixel camera and a 1450mAh battery. The ...

    With nearly a dozen new phones announced at Mobile World Congress, you might be curious as to when the new devices will land, and perhaps more importantly, how much they're going to cost. Most of the devices will hit Europe first, where citizens are used to paying higher non-subsidized prices for new smarpthones, so keep that in mind when you peruse the prices below: Xperia Play: 649 EUR ($882 USD) Xperia Arc: 599 EUR ($814 USD) Xperia Neo: 479 EUR ($651 USD) Wildfire S: (299 EUR ($406) Desire S: 499 EUR ($678 USD) Incredible S: 519 EUR ($705 USD) HTC Flyer: 669 EUR ($909 USD) Several of ...

    The latest upgrade to HTC Sense for Android is pretty modest: Gingerbread phones will get a redesigned app tray, the left button on your homescreen look different, and there are some new widget. One more to add to the list: you can rearrange homescreens within the Leap feature. HTC was first to introduce Leap, which allows you to get a zoomed out view of all of your homescreens with an ease multitouch gesture, last year at Mobile World Congress. This year, they add the ability to tap and drag your homescreens within Leap to quickly rearrange them. Check it out in the video below! Update: ...

    Dear HTC, Not a lot has happened since our last letter, and that's kind of why we decided to write again: you promised us something big at Mobile World Congress, and you must have been referring to that tablet, because the crop of phones that you brought along was pretty ho hum. We were totally excited for some dual-core, qHD, gigabyte-of-RAM, NFC-equipped action, and instead, the highlights of your lineup were a pair of low-end handsets with a rather gimmicky social networking button on them. As for the mainstream models, well, those weren't really much better -- incremental upgrades to ...
