The HTC Wildfire, which knocked at the FCC door under the ID PG76110, has requested approval for WCDMA bands II and V also. This too indicates that it will hit AT&T than any other carrier. However, AT&T sources are yet to confirm this.

The Wildfire is packed with all essentials, such as a 3.2 inch screen, 600 MHz processor, 512 MB RAM , Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it also boasts of a 5 mega pixel camera. The smartphone is expected to be released during the second quarter of this year. Will you be picking yours as soon as it arrives? As you wait, you may want to read our in-depth review of the earlier Wildfire device here.
