The HTC Wildfire S is quickly becoming HTC's go-to budget and off-contract Android device.

Already available on T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular, the petite Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset is now headed to MetroPCS this week, where it will cost $179 for the off-contract smartphone, and come in white. The Wildfire S has a 3.2-inch HVGA touch screen, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and a 600MHz processor.

Significantly, this is MetroPCS' first offering with HTC, a move that signals a partnership between the national's largest no-contract carrier and a handset maker known for bringing forth quality products.
