Telstra last night announced its release details for the Desire S and Wildfire S smartphones from HTC. Both Gingerbread-based handsets are going to be available exclusively through Telstra, with an exceptionally attractive outright purchase price.

The Wildfire S won't be available until July 19, but when it goes on sale it will be available for $360 outright or across a range of Freedom Connect plans.
