HTC Wildfire S glides through the FCC with support for AT&T 3GAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
If you're in the market for an HTC-made Android device on AT&T, the options are pretty slim: you've got either the aging Aria or the Inspire 4G. Thanks to a recent FCC filing, though, it seems that that lineup may be growing in the near future. The HTC Wildfire S, which was announced way back at Mobile World Congress in February, was just spotted getting the FCC's stamp of approval for use on the very same 850/1900MHz bands that ATT uses for its 3G network.
Obviously this news doesn't guarantee that Ma Bell will ever actually launch the Wildfire S but, considering how committed AT&T is to expanding its Android lineup in 2011, it wouldn't surprise me to see it happen. In case you need a refresher on exactly what makes the Wildfire S tick, the device's spec list is as follows: 3.2-inch 480x320 screen, 600MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, 5-megapixel camera with flash, and Android 2.3 running beneath HTC's Sense UI. For even more Wildfire S goodness, our hands-on with the device is conveniently embedded below.
