Nokia 500 vs. HTC Wildfire S. Which One is Better?

Nokia 500


The Nokia 500 may be 'cheap', but it's the first smartphone to come out of Finland packing a speedy 1GHz processor.

This respectable chipset powers the handset's 3.2-inch (640 x 320) capacitive touchscreen, which also arrives dressed in Nokia's Symbian Anna OS. As well as delivering Nokia Maps and access to Nokia's home-grown app store, the brand-new platform offers...
