I plan to buy this phone because it's affordable for a smartphone!I've heard that tatoo doesn't lag unlike the HERO.Tatoo is faster in comparison with HERO.It's true that the screen si smaller but that makes no odds for me.HTC HERO has 5 megapixel camera but the quality of the photos are similar with the tatoo's.HERO is capacitive but tatoo has optimized resistive touchscreen.There is now xenon/led flash on the HERO so still nothing worthwhile.I prefer HTC tatoo
Semiauto, 15 Jan 2010The alarm(wake up) feature only works if the phone is switched on. This is pretty cheezy as I ... moreYou definitely keep the phone on. Only you can set it in "flight mode", that is disconnected from the network. And that should save battery also.
In India, HTC Tattoo does not have 3G. Please refrain from buying this model if you are looking for 3G Mobile model.
I was shocked to see India model specification from HTC Site.
Don't do same mistake that I did. Please check the specification of any mobile before you buy.
amex007, 20 Jan 2010Does the Tattoo has a Pen stylus...Please some body answer?No Pen stylus
Also, did not miss it myself.
Typing is quite good.
My wife uses an iPhone.
While HTC may not be as good as iPhone, but its not too bad either.
In fact, chatting on gtalk is quite good
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2010i can not browse my sd card. what will i do. please reply urgentPls go ahead and download Astro file browser from Market
So far so good.
Got it for $268 from StarHub in Singapore
12 GB monthly data connection
Installed some helpful applications
1) Astro File Browser
2) SBS Next Bus
5) Stitcher Radio
Things I like
* Predictive texting
* HSPA connection speed
* Gmail / Mail interface
Things I dont like
* Camera very poor (but that was not the purpose of buying HTC)
* Initial problem with "https" site. Resolved now. Downloaded another browser (Dolphin). Switched OFF 3G and Switched back ON. Problem gone. Now I have uninstalled Dolphin Browser and am having no problem in the supplied browser.
* Message alerts are pathetic. Its very easy to miss an alert.
* Battery requires charging very often. But its not so much of a problem as it can use normal USB to Mini-USB cable which is easily available. I m using the supplied charger plugged to power point at home and am using my office laptop with my PSP cable to charge at office.
Query :- Do let me know if I can have some file browser that allows to copy in /System/Media/Audio/Notifications folder.
If I can copy any reasonably loud mp3 file here, I will be able to use it for message alerts.
hello people could anybody write some cool applications for tatoo from market, for example alarm, bluetooth transfering, micro sd explorer, ... ???
Fantastic phone - mastered the predictive text, but does anyone know where you can save a draft text message??

Windows Mobile Contact Book is much better then Android in HTC Tattoo. In WM you can save file in Name+Company name combine which hlps in searching out. In Android Contacts are saved in persons name only, what if you want to search out from company's name. I think Google should come out with more improvements in Contact Book section, which basic need of of any phone. Combined feature of WM & Symbian would be the best option.
