AT&T HTC Aria To Say No To Third-party Apps

June 17, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

AT&T, which has always been going slow with regard to allowing installation of non-Android third-party apps on the phones on its network, will be continuing with that policy for the HTC Aria too. This might extend the disappointment that Android lovers already has with the network, as they were all waiting to lay their hands on an Android phone while continuing to stay with AT&T. The carrier had earlier done the same with the Motorola Backflip.

If you would remember, the Motorola Backflip had come armed with Yahoo as the search provider, and it hadn’t allowed installation of unsigned, non-Android Market applications. However, Android fans who were indeed anticipating the arrival of HTC Aria will now have to stay disappointed as the carrier is not planning to allow any third part y apps whatsoever. It is believed that the HTC Aria will come featuring a similar app restriction to the Motorola Backflip. With the disappointment likely to touch deeper levels, it would be right for the Android freaks on AT&T to go for the Nexus One as its maker Google has been selling the phone directly to consumers in a model that carries 3G bands. If you are still hoping to go for the HTC Aria on AT&T, you need to stay loyal to Android apps and be happy with the Android market offerings and not look at any third party stuff. Don’t hesitate to tell us if that’s right or not.
