The HTC Tattoo wants to redefine smart in smartphone. This affordable little thing was among the first droids to go mass-market. But run-of-the-mill specs donít mean a boring personality. The HTC Tattoo wears its heart on the sleeve and a shirt for every day of the week means no shortage of sleeves. What do you know, HTC are busy running a tattoo shop.
The Android Market is a huge part of the deal with every droid phone. The HTC Tattoo has two: a beauty shop and a food store to go to. Back at launch, the QVGA screen resolution wouldnít let the Tattoo make the best of the Android Market. Things should be different a few months later with more QVGA droids around.
The HTC Tattoo is the unlikeliest of phones to be bored with, but thereís more to this than the custom-designed covers: the Tattoo will be getting the Android 2.1 …clair update. Nice one, we say: some happy users and a review thatís at least remotely on time. Here go the full specs to get us started:
Itís the custom-designed covers that make the HTC Tattoo a unique package, a phone for users who want to express themselves. The unique customization is the right thing perhaps to make an otherwise average smartphone stand out Ė and inspire mass users to endorse a new platform.
The top-notch connectivity aside, the HTC Tattoo is a standard smartphone package. This is a first-gen Android with all the inherent weaknesses. On top of that, you get a smallish low-resolution screen. Well, thatís one part of the deal you sign for. But itís still all fair and square we think when you throw in the reasonable price tag and the chance to express your artistic self.
So, is the Tattoo really your kind of phone? You know, even if itís not, thatís easier to fix than any other phone out there. The HTC Tattoo has been around long enough but itís keen to offer a new experience every time. Letís see.
