I wish they would release it already, I have made up my mind and i want that phone. I really liked the feel of the now "old" Wildfire and this one is going to be even better. Goodbye to my Nokia 6700 classic, i should not have never bought it. HTC release the damn S already.

Too bad i already bought the old Wildfire. The price will apparently be very similar to what i paid for the old one. Only downside of the old one is really the screen which is very low res but still, once you get used to it, it's a great phone and i have no doubts that Wildfire S will also be a success. HTC is by far one of the best phone companies as far as i'm concerned. Period. They don't over do it on one end and forget about other stuff. Instead they offer a good blend of everything, features, build quality, service, support, selection of phones etc. I hope they'll keep up the same good work.

It just looks so much better and it's solid like a tank. The price is also better. Around 60 euros less with about the same features. You can easily update it to have Android 2.3.

I'd have to agree though.. HTC screens are pretty bad..
But so are Sony's hardware lol.

this phone is too expensive and doesn't offer anything really new comparing to the previous model, the HTC Wildfire.

for same price you can have a 1gz cellphone, bigger screen,....

It's been a while since x10 released as I recall the latest version of X10 should be 2.1...Unless you flash yourself but basically they don't even know what root is..not to mention flash their rom to 2.3 by their own...all I can see is sadness and desperate for waiting release date of 2.2..And now SE announce x10 be able to officially upgrade to 2.3 at middle of the year? come this SE good services? without multi touch and 2.1 version is the main reason i didnt choose it but paid more bucks for my desire z

well..obviously wildfire series just for female or android newcomer...old user would never think about this phone.. I'm waiting EVO 3D and Samsung Galaxy S 2 by the way...but take this phone for your girlfriend or your sister/mother might be great :3

Htc has really lost its track lately. They need to step up.

Get your facts right

Try using an HTC then ure you're xperia.

I work in the industry and even the Sony Ericsson rep who i speak to agrees with me, the quality of the Sony Ericsson handsets (and features) doesn't touch HTC, let alone the reliability.

Now look at sales figures and see how many people across the world agree with me.

Hmm, was considering buying the Galaxy Pro to replace my Hero, but this seems a good option too.
