HTC today introduced HTC Wildfire, a new HTC Sense-based Android phone that integrates social networks to help bring your friends closer to you.
"HTC Wildfire makes the HTC Sense experience available to young mobile users for the first time. It brings all your communications into one place, whether it's through Facebook, Twitter, text messages, images or email, ensuring that you are never far away from the conversation and always close to your friends," said Florian Seiche, Vice President, HTC EMEA.
HTC's Friend Stream application gathers and displays content from social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr into one organised stream of updates. HTC Wildfire enables you to stay up to date with your friends' posts, comments, alerts and photos, wherever you are.
In addition, each contact viewed in HTC Wildfire's address book includes a thread of recent communications with that person, including when you last spoke, recent text messages and emails, and social network updates. When your friend calls, HTC Caller ID displays their Facebook profile photo and latest update, as well as a reminder if their birthday is fast approaching.
Thanks to a new app sharing widget, HTC Wildfire enables you to recommend an application by email, text message or over social networks. Your friends will receive a link allowing them to find the application on the Android Market with a single click and download it to their phone.
HTC's latest smartphone has a 3.2-inch touch screen, a five-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash and a 3.5mm audio jack and micro SD card slot.
It will be broadly available in major European and Asian markets from Q3 2010.
