Mobile recycling could lead consumers to updated HTC Wildfire

HTC's popular Wildfire models will now be compatible with Android 2.2

The HTC Wildfire is a device that may already have been on the minds of those who recycle a mobile phone and subsequently seek a replacement.

However, now it has undergone an update in order to run on the Android 2.2 operating system, it could have shot to the top of wish lists for many consumers.

Nick Hide, writing for CNET UK, explains the model will be compatible with the newer platform after HTC launched an upgrade.

"Android 2.2 offers some snazzy new features over 2.1, including tethering, so you can use your phone's 3G connection on your laptop via a USB cable or Wi-Fi," he notes.

Other advantages include the "handy" ability to secure the latest and most exciting apps and store them on an SD card.

HTC manufactures a range of mobiles that may be of significant interest to those seeking one of the most modern smartphones, including Hero and Desire.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you’re thinking about upgrading to a phone like this, why not trade-in your old handset for cash? It could come in handy at this time of year."
