HTC now have the new version of HTC Sync (v3.0).You can send music, playlists, images and other contant in your HTC Wildfire.It’s a great news for Wildfire users….

One of the latest Android-based smartphones Taiwan-based mobile phone maker HTC brought to the market during the ongoing year was the HTC Wildfire, already put on sale in various markets around the world. Those who already purchased the device, or any other Android-based smartphone from HTC, know that a special application is needed to connect the handset to a Windows-based computer, namely HTC Sync. What they might not know is that a new version of that application has been recently made available for download, namely HTC Sync 3.0.5387.

What HTC Sync for HTC Wildfire is all about includes the possibility to sync various files between the mobile phone and a desktop computer. Here’s what the handset vendor has to say on the matter: “You can use HTC Sync to synchronize Outlook contacts and calendar or Outlook Express contacts and the bookmarks of web browser between your computer and your phone. It also lets you install third-party Android applications on the phone, and bring your photos, videos, documents, songs, and playlists to your phone.”

Good news for Wildfire owners: fresh from HTC’s oven is its 3.0 desktop sync suite that like the one baked for the Desire over the weekend enables iTunes sync for the company’s latest budget device. Since we had a Wildfire on hand, we decided to go through the trouble to check out this new feature. And boy, it sure was a bumpy start.

We had no problems with obtaining the software, but in order to get the “HTC Sync” option to appear in the USB connection menu, we had to switch on USB debugging mode (Settings -> Applications -> Development) before establishing our first link. As fiddly as it sounds, this was actually the only tricky part of the preparation, and you can leave debugging mode switched off afterwards.

The new software solution is available for download from HTC’s support website here. Once the file has been downloaded to a PC running under Microsoft’s Windows operating system (XP, Vista or Windows 7), one would have to run the .exe file to install the solution and to start using it. In order to have the device synced to the desktop PC, users would need to connect it via the USB cable that arrived in the package. When connecting the device for the first time, after HTC Sync has been installed on the PC, one would have to wait for about half a minute for the solution to be installed on the phone too.

So, how does the iTunes sync work? Well, it’s certainly nowhere as thrilling as Palm’s cheeky hack — it appears to simply access iTunes’ database and playlists for the file locations, rather than fooling iTunes into thinking your Wildfire’s an iDevice.

For best HTC Sync performance on your PC/ NB, we suggest you uninstall all previous versions of HTC Sync 2.0 before upgrading to HTC Sync 3.0 and above. HTC Sync 3.0 is only compatible with HTC Wildfire . If you are you also using other phones, we suggest you keep two versions in your PC/ NB for sync two different Android Platfrom phones,” the company also notes. Detailed instructions on the installation of HTC Sync 3.0.5387 and on the syncing of Wildfire are available on HTC’s support website.

You’ll also be limited to syncing either everything or just selected playlists (smart playlists supported), so in other words, you can’t sync by artists or genres, and you’ll have to set up a dedicated playlist for syncing podcasts. Apart from this minor flaw, we’d say this is still a pretty neat solution for an age-old problem, and hopefully HTC will offer a similar app for Mac users.

    “Update: We got downright excited for a second there, but an HTC spokesman just called to inform us there’s been a mistake — this download is only for the desktop HTC Sync client and doesn’t actually enable anything on the phone. We’re working to get more information right now, but it sounds like the sideloading ball is still squarely in AT&T’s court.”
