HTC Wildfire Video
For Alltel customers on a budget, the HTC Wildfire is a very affordable and decently featured Android phone, but it comes at the cost of screen quality and processor speed.
This tiny little Android handset packs a surprising punch, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the HTC Sense UI, and a 5-megapixel camera. It's now available prepaid without a contract from Virgin Mobile.
For international markets, the Samsung Wave is a nice, budget-friendly foray into the world of smartphones, but there are more affordable and more full-featured options for the U.S.
If you like good things in small packages, the petite and well-built HTC Wildfire S is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone with your name on it.
The PowerShot A3000 IS is a good budget-friendly Canon compact, if nothing else.
The budget-friendly Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a solid compact megazoom for those that prize creative control and photo quality more than fast shooting performance or a small, lightweight design.
Its small size won't please everyone, but the HTC Wildfire S is a decent, entry-level Android smartphone for a very affordable price.
The Wildfire S is a great bargain, particularly if you're dabbling with smartphones for the first time and don't mind the smaller screen and design.
With a range of features, the PM-8200 is a worthy upgrade from its budget-friendly predecessor, the Sanyo SCP-8100.
Nokai's Lumia 610 brings Windows Phone 7 Tango but puts it in a smaller, more budget-friendly package.
HTC Wildfire - black (unlocked) Review
The good: The HTC Wildfire features a compact and solid design. As the successor to the Tattoo, it offers an updated OS, a 5-megapixel camera, and good call quality.
The bad: Features a lower-resolution screen. The smartphone can be sluggish at times. Lacks support for North American 3G bands. Camera quality was rather subpar.
The bottom line: Designed for international markets, the HTC Wildfire is a compact, budget-friendly Android phone packed with features, but you can find similar devices in North America for less on contract and with added 3G support.
