HTC has announced another new model to add to its growing array of Android phones, and this one is called the Wildfire.

This handset is targeted at a younger market, and you can think of it as a cut down and more budget friendly version of the HTC Desire.

The Wildfire will come with a 3.2 inch touchscreen, a 500MHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, an FM radio and wi-fi. It will run Android 2.1.

As is the norm these days, particularly for a youth-oriented phone, Facebook and Twitter come integrated to some extent, with messages and tweets, along with texts, visible in an individual’s contact sheet in the address book.

Basically, you can see all correspondence with one person, including social networking updates, under their contact listing.

The Wildfire also boasts an app sharing system, which allows users to recommend apps to their friends.

The Guardian reckons that the phone should be available in July. Pricing is yet to be announced, but this should be a fairly wallet friendly device, relatively speaking.
