HTC Aria sings out for AT&T, could arrive by June
Speculation was swirling that AT&T wanted their own exclusive HTC branded Android device and it looks like the carrier is about to make it's wishes come true. The HTC PC70110 has received the usual thumbs up from the Feds and this Android flavored device passed muster using AT&T's radio band. Calling this phone the PC70110 is a bit unweildy, so the device has been christened the HTC Aria. At launch, the Aria will rock with Android 2.1 under the hood, Sense UI on top and a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard. The carrier's fans are seeking a  high-end Android model and the crippled Motorola BACKFLIP just doesn't do it. The Aria might not do it either and with EVO 4G coming to Sprint, the pressure is really on AT&T to become a place where you can buy a high-end Android model. AT&T is expected to introduce the phone on June 7th.

AT&T better get a good Android phone soon or I will just have to get the new Iphone... and to be honest I don't really want too, but if ATT doesn't step it up on the Android front soon, I am simply not willing to wait...

buy the new iphone and sell it. It should sell for a lot since everyone's going to go bananas for it. Then just abandon ship and check out either sprint or verizon for a better android experience.

both sprint and verizon have horrible reception where I live. I returned the Incredible because of that, and Im not getting the EVO because of that... I wish ATT had something like that...

Yea sorry to hear that. I have AT&T also and I also wish they could have a great android phone but AT&T keeps on humping apples leg's and won't let any other phone have a chance to compete with it. Luckily I have good reception here so I think I'll be leaving them in a few weeks.

For some reason, there appears to be a physical slider at the front of the device. Which got me thinking, why arn't there any phones out with a physical horizontal slider to unlock/answer/hang up button at the front of the device? That way I can answer phone calls on a capacity touch screen phone without taking off my glove in the winter time.

Let us hope, because I do not want to go to SPRINT - I would rather get a great ANDROID phone and add a line to my wife's plan - which would be cheaper than starting new service with another carrier....

AT&T is not under that much pressure to bring out a decent ANDROID phone - it is more concentrated on APPLE products which have proven to be a cash cow. However, consumers, in general, want more choices besides BLACKBERRY BOLD SLIDER and IPHONE IV.

... Storm... Storm 2... Droid... Eris... Incredible... Need I Say More? Traditionally, AT&T has gotten most of the cool phone first, but this past year or two has been different. Sprint got the Palm Pre (Supposed to be, but not advertised well) and now they are getting the EVO. T-Mobile got the HD2. What are you complaining about? The iPhone? Honestly, overrated.
