HTC's new Aria smartphone has been made official on AT&T, with the compact touchscreen Android handset expected to make its sales debut on June 20th. The HTC Aria has a 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen - like the HTC Legend
- together with an optical joystick and HTC's Sense UI, and runs Android 2.1.
There's also Bluetooth, WiFi and 3G/HSPA, together with a 5-megapixel camera on the back. If you're thinking that the Aria's physical design looks familiar, you're not wrong: HTC have used a similar style to the HTC HD mini
, down to the soft-touch rubber back plate and the exposed screws holding the whole smartphone together. Of course the big difference is that the Aria runs Android rather than the HD mini's Windows Mobile 6.5.3.
