T-Mobile in the UK has come clean with pricing and an upcoming release date for the budget-friendly HTC Wildfire.

Essentially a "slimmed-down version" of the HTC Desire (Droid Eris), the HTC Wildfire is geared towards a youthful crowd, with a focus on social networking apps and a low monthly price tag. Sounds like another set of mobile devices recently released.

Based on Android 2.1, here's a quick look at some of what the 4.2-ounce HTC Wildfire has to offer:

  • 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display
  • 5-megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash
  • MP3 player and radio
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • micro SD card
  • Preloaded apps: Facebook, Twitter, Flickr
  • Unique programs: App Sharing (sharing Android apps with friends), Friend Stream (collecting social network updates on one menu)

The HTC Wildfire will be available on T-Mobile UK on June 14 for as low as £20 ($30) per month with a two-year contract. The Wildfire will also be made available on Virgin Mobile in the UK, so pricing and release info on that initiative is sure to follow soon.
