The HTC Wildfire S is one of the most anticipated models to come out from Android giant HTC and it is also considered to be one of the most practical as well as affordable. It is an upgrade from the previous (also equally as popular) HTC Wildfire which will be phased out once the S hits the market.
It now comes with a more compact chassis and is installed with the expected Android system while it is also fitted with a high resolution HVGA display. Previously, it only came with a QVGA system. Hence, you will get clearer pictures through its 3.2 inches HVGA display on the set which is ultra light, weighing only 105g.
Powered up by a 600MHz processor, one of the drawbacks of this is that it is only installed with 2.1 version of the Android OS. It also has an inbuilt 512MB of RAM while you can expandable to 32GB using a micro-SD memory card. It supports 2G and 3G networks and also comes with Wi-fi 802.11 and Bluetooth too. Camera comes with a 5 megapixel lens which has auto-focus and led-flash capabilities as well. Other features of the phone include a 3.5 mm stereo audio jack as well as digital compass.

Acer recently took a step further forward when they launched their Acer Iconia Tab A500 which apart from looking extremely sharp, is also revolutionary. This follows the recent launch of the Iconia series with a natural tablet PC with an attachable keyboard to function like a standard laptop.
It runs on the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system where the 10 inch tablet is powered up by the 1GHz Tegra 2 Dual Core processor and 1GB of RAM with 32GB of storage space.
