Following the Wildfire S , it seems HTC wants to bring Android to even lower price points. The latest leak reveals the HTC Pico , a budget Android phone which lines up right alongside the Wildfire.
While the original HTC Wildfire was a pint-sized alternative to the flagship HTC Desire, it cut a few too many corners in order to keep its price (not to mention dimensions) down. The screen showcased an awkward 240×320 pixel resolution and as a result many Android apps and games wouldn’t even work on the phone. The device was also hindered by an anemic 528MHz processor – practically stone-age in smartphone terms – which made it a poor second to the new generation of 1GHz mobiles that hit the market in 2010.
However, despite its numerous problems, the Wildfire proved to be something of a hit with consumers, possibly because its dinky size made it a truly ‘mobile’ smartphone. Just as it has done with the Desire S, HTC is revisiting the Wildfire concept with a new device that attempts to improve on what has gone before. Lets explore the device in the FoneArena Wildfire S Review. Continue reading “HTC Wildfire S Review”
