June 14, 2010, By Thomas Antony

AT&T’s offerings in terms of Android handsets haven’t really been anything worth buying. It seems they may have done something better this time. While it is not a Nexus One by a long shot, the HTC Aria seems to do a pretty good job otherwise. The new Android 2.1 smartphone will land on AT&T on June 20th at a rather mainstream pricetag of $130. The pocket sized Aria is a exclusive to AT&T and according to them offers customers “Android smartphone functionality in an amazingly easy-to-carry design.

The HTC Aria has a bright 3.2 inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, a five megapixel camera and 7.2 Mbps HSPA 3G connectivity. The Aria is also WiFi capable and qualifying customers will be able to access AT&T WiFi from more than 20,000 hotspots in the US. It runs on a much faster 600Mhz Qualcomm MSM 7227 processor as compared to the 525 MHz processor in the older HTC Android handsets. It also does away with the trackball and replaces it with an optical trackpad. Other specs include integrated GPS, proximity sensor, digital compass, light sensor, 512 MB ROM and 384MB RAM along with a micro SD card slot with a 2GB card preloaded.

The HTC Aria is just over 4-inches long and tips the scales at 4.05 ounces. It also packs the HTC Sense UI enhancement for Android. HTC Aria will be available on June 20 at AT&T retail locations nationwide or at http://www.att.com/wireless for $129.99 after $100 mail-in rebate when signing up for a new two-year agreement.
