HTC Aria enters the stage with a song for AT&T

HTC Aria enters the stage with a song for AT&T
The HTC Aria, which has been rumored for a while now, just got the unboxing treatment on the AT&T  Facebook page by its Android Product Manager, Dante Martin. It is now confirmed that the handset is running Android 2.1, has a 5MP camera and a 3.2 inch HVGA screen, and is coming with a 2GB memory card.

From the looks of it in the video and images, it's overall design is quite similar to the HTC HD mini. It is a glossy black mid-range Android device in a mainstream rectangular shape. The HTC Aria has an optical trackpad and the usual assortment of Android touch keys below the screen. Nothing fancy, but AT&T can finally ward off the claims that it is not offering much joy for Android lovers.

The product manager obviously had a lunch break waiting for him after the video. After walking us through the trademark HTC Sense UI, he felt the urge to hit the dedicated speech recognition button on the virtual keyboard, and make the phone type “grilled cheese sandwich”, which seemed to work slowly, but surely. Hey, nothing funnier than typing with your voice on a crowded metro train...

The HTC Aria smartphone will be widely available on AT&T  starting June 20th.
