HTC Gratia Android Handset to be Available in the UK in February

January 20, 2011, By Leo Xavier

HTC has announced that its Gratia handset will be on sale in the UK starting next month. The new device, which is an entry-level Android smartphone, will be available contract free since no operators in the UK have signed up as yet.

Earlier, the company had said that the budget Android device will be available from November 2010 onwards. But, although a bit late, the company is all set to release the new phone.

If you are thinking that the new device looks familiar, it’s because the device looks similar to the HTC Aria, and it also shares some of the Aria’s specs as well.

The Gratia, that runs the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, comes with HTC Sense, and has a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and a 3.2 inch display with a HVGA resolution.

The device also comes with Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, WiFi, a microUSB port, GPS, a G-sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor, along with a microSD card slot, 512MB of ROM and 384MB of RAM. You will also get 3G with HSPA/WCDMA 900/2100 support along with the quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity.

The device measures just over 4 inches from head to toe, and should be available in black, white and green.
