EXCLUSIVE: First Look at HTC Aria?


One of tipsters just passed along a few screen shots for an HTC device headed for AT&T.  They have been pretty solid in the past so we’re inclined to believe them this time around.  Here’s what they knows about the device from their brief experience with it.  The phone runs Android 2.1 with HTC Sense UI, has a 5 megapixel camera, and is “the smallest Android device” they have seen yet.  Our source took a handful of pictures of the phone next to a business card for size comparison.  We’re thinking this device has a 2.5-inch or 2.8-inch screen similar to the HTC Wildfire or HTC Tattoo.

In terms of ports, there’s nothing remarkable to speak of.  There’s a microUSB port on the bottom and 3.5mm headphone jack on the top.  We can make out an optical joystick at the bottom which HTC has favored on many of their 2010 handsets.  If we were to wager a guess, we think we’re looking at the HTC Aria.  It’s being rumored that AT&T is slated to announce this phone next week, on the same day Steve Jobs gets on stage to talk fourth generation iPhones.

Naturally, we’ll bring you more details if and when we get them!


  1. It says in the article it's running 2.1

    I agree though, nothing too special about this handset I don't think. But it's still interesting to see what type of new android devices are coming out down the road, even if they arent always the most kick ass android devices 🙂

  2. Ugh, please let this not be the new phone. I want a screen I can read and browse on! All these small screen devices have crappy processors too… where is our AT&T 1Ghz Snapdragon phone? 🙁

    • ATT will not go against Jobs, if this is it, they will lose a good many customers that want a tru android device.

      • I agree, this device doesn't look that interesting. However, the i897 and the x10 are two android devices I would purchase, as long as AT&T doesn't "cripple" them too much like they did with the backflip.

        • i wouldnt even expect i897 or x10 to ever come to att. at the rate things are goin att will only offer the iphone by end of next year. move to canada or europe if you want any phone rumored to come to att

  3. WTF – ATT won't ever release a decent ANDROID PHONE! They only release $h!T!!! The BackFlop, the Arid, and now a device so small one would need a magnifying glass to read the dam thing!!

    Oh, then we have the other side of the spectrum – the Dell Streak – So, big I might as well purchase a freeaking tablet!

    I am so sick of ATT's crap! I wish I wasn't stuck in a family plan with a (currently) $360.00 fee to get out of our contract!

  4. I really do not like ATT’s service. There are a lot more companies out there with better phones & better service. Maybe when they come out with a decent phone & better service, I will consider using them. Until then, no thanks!
