HTC Wildfire S

HTC's entry-level Wildfire S will get an earlier than expected SIM-free release via British online retailer Clove, according to a post on the company's official blog. Clove says it'll begin shipping the black version of the Wildfire S tomorrow, with the silver version (seen above) following sometime next week. Both flavors will set you back £238.80.
