Review: HTC Wildfire S
The Wildfire S tackles email, SMS, MMS, IM, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Picasa, Flickr, etc. with gusto.
There are several different avenues to get your email. First, there is the generic email program for Exchange, IMAP and POP accounts, which offers a nice user interface for sorting through messages. Then there's the native Gmail client, which continues to be great. There's also a T-Mobile-branded email application, though it's rather crummy, and I can't imagine why you'd want to use it.
The native Android SMS app is on board and works just as it does on other Android handsets. Google Talk is the only native IM app on board. Want more? Go fishing in the Android Market.

There are a number of ways to connect to social networks with the Wildfire S. First, there's HTC's FriendStream. The FriendStream app reaches into your Facebook and Twitter accounts and pulls down status updates in a stream that you can look at quickly. It can also be used to cross-post your own status updates. HTC's Peep application can be used as a substitute for Twitter, though I prefer the official Twitter application on Android devices. The native Facebook app is also better than FriendStream for really interacting with your account.
Visual voicemail is also present and accounted for.
