According to the Vodafone UK website, the HTC Tatoo will be coming to the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish sometime in October. As I am sure you are aware, the Tatoo is quite similar to the other HTC Android offerings, sporting HSDPA and a 3.2 megapixel camera. It was first announced earlier this month and will also pack a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB ROM/256MB RAM, and a 2.8’’ resistive touch-screen display. Vodafone’s own website state that it will offer a 3.2’’ display, which is probably a typo as this is also the same spec as the camera. Here is what the Vodafone website has to say about the device:
Everything you love about the internet, exactly how you want it. The HTC Tattoo™ mobile phone will keep you entertained and up to date wherever you are. You can shape your own distinct mobile experience using the latest HTC Sense™ technology.
Sleek and stylish, the HTC Tattoo mobile phone is powered by cutting edge Android technology. So web essentials like Google Maps™ and Google Mail™ work brilliantly.

You can even design or get new unique covers for your HTC Tattoo mobile phone, altering the look of your HTC Tattoo to reflect your mood or taste.
If you hop on over to the official HTC website, you can see that Android 1.6 (Donut) is on offer but there is no word on pricing or tariff.
