While we heard the HTC Aria could have been pushed out a bit early at AT&T and Best Buy stores this weekend (the device was already stocked-up and ready to go)… One thing is for certain now. The Aria has gone live on AT&T. If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on an actual SOLID piece of Android hardware on AT&T, the Aria will fit the bill.
Packing Android 2.1 OS and HTC’s beautiful (and very easy to use) Sense UI, the AT&T HTC Aria will surely be a best seller for the folks at AT&T. The Aria’s tiny-ish form factor is one that may prove to be appealing to many. It weighs in at only 4.05 ounces, and is just over 4 inches tall, 2 inches wide… and about half an inch thick. While I haven’t had the chance to play with the device yet, I assume it packs the usual high quality fit-and-finish I’ve come to love from the folks at HTC. With the Aria you’ll also find a 5 megapixel camera with zoom and video capture, 3G, WiFi, 3.2″ (480×320) HVGA display, Bluetooth, and 512 MB of flash memory (expandable to 32 GB via microSD). The 1200 mHA battery found inside should give you up to 6 hours of talk time and 15.5 days of standby time. Not too shabby, not too shabby at all.
Bottom line here, the HTC Aria packs a lot of goodness into a compact, powerful little package that I think many will enjoy. If you have been (or are) turned off by the gigantic EVO 4G on Sprint, the Aria could be the answer.
Available in black only, the HTC Aria is available from AT&T at $129.99 on a 2-year term, after online discount. A minimum data service plan of $15 per month is required.
