At first, I thought this was a good idea - a low end Android phone that is affordable. But after reading the review I realized there is a big problem here. QVGA resolution will never become popular on this platform. I realize it is possible to code with the mindset of resolution independence but with so few pixels to play with, I get the feeling that many applications will just not bother with this resolution. I think HTC should have gone with HVGA even if it is resistive. Oh well, my GF is getting my current Android and I am off to higher resolution Android! :)

I have bought the HTC Tattoo last week...It used it for one day. Then I returned it the following day to the store. The phone is very bad. The bluetooth does not work at all. The Android market is closed for Middle East so I can not download any programs. The email configuration could not be done. I have tried many times but no luck. Touchscreen is very bad. Sending sms is a nightmare. To sum up I certainly advise any one who wants to buy a cell phone...KEEP AWAY from HTC Tattoo.
