HTC Tattoo

We’ve seen the HTC Tattoo before, just in a different name. Previously known as the HTC Click, the Tattoo is a budget minded, low end Android phone that’s been officially announced and will be releasing in Europe in early October. What’s amazing is that even though it’s not targeted for the high-end user the Tattoo will still run HTC Sense.

The downside of the HTC Tattoo? Well, again since it’s not targeted for the high-end user, it’ll only use a 2.8-inch QVGA(240×320) resistive touchscreen. We know the resistive touchscreen was used to keep costs down but if it’s at the expense of user experience, it’s a tough pill to swallow. Hopefully the average consumer won’t blame the Android OS for hardware shortcomings.

On the bright side, the other specs look magnificent for a mass market device: 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 3.2 megapixel camera, 512MB ROM, 256MB RAM, 3G, quad-band GSM, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, compass and accelerometer. HTC is seriously positioning themselves as the Android phone manufacturer. High-end, low-end, mid-end, anything–they’ve got it covered.

Here are two review videos:
