Today HTC announced the Tattoo, the device that many were calling the Click. The Tattoo features a 528MHz processor, a 3.5mm headphone port, and a QVGA resolution resistive touchscreen display that sports HTC’s Hero-like HTC Sense user interface, which offers all sorts of widgets (Twitter, Facebook, FlickR, weather) on a 7 panel home screen.
I actually used a very early version of the Tattoo many months ago, and I have to say that I was surprised at how well the system dealt with a 2.8-inch QVGA res display. HTC said it went to some lengths to make sure that the applications would all render properly on the phone.
The phone is set to be available in Europe in October, and other markets soon thereafter. No pricing info yet.
Here are some specs:
- 106 x 55.2 x 14 mm ( 4.17 x 2.17 x 0.55 inches)
- 113 grams ( 3.99 ounces)
- 900/2100MHz UMTS/HSPA, quad-band GSM/EDGE
- GPS, Bluetooth 2.0 w/stereo, WiFi, FM radio, compass
- miniUSB port, 3.5mm headphone port
- 3.2 megapixel camera
- 1100mAh battery 5.7/6.5 hour talk time, 21/14 day standby (3G/GSM)
- microSD memory card slot
Gallery after the jump. I’ve also added a YouTube video that was recently posted. It is in German, but even if you don’t speak the language you can at least see what it looks like.
