AT&T today announced the HTC Aria, a new Android 2.1 device that uses HTC's Sense user interface. The Aria has a 3.2-inch HVGA touch display, an optical mouse, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and video capture. It has quad-band GSM/EDGE and 850/1900MHz 7.2Mbps HSPA. Other radios include GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. It is powered by a 700MHz Qualcomm processor. Other features include a digital compass, G-sensor, and proximity sensor. It will be boxed with a 2GB microSD card and supports cards up to 32GB. The HTC Aria will be available on June 20 for $230, and AT&T is offering a $100 mail-in rebate for an AT&T promotion card. It will be available online and in retail stores starting June 20.

Verizon has the HTC Droid Incredible,
Sprint has the HTC Evo 4G,
Even T-Mobile has the HTC HD2.

ALL have 1Ghz Snapdragon processors.
ALL have higher resolution displays.

AT&T is not serving their customers with this phone. I guess Apple has them by their privates, or else we would at least be seeing something closer to the Nexus One as an alternative to the iPhone.

Does the "Ct" in your username mean Connecticut?
I'm yawning too!
ATT has the iphone4 (it' coming!), that all they need!
I can agree with you to a certain extent Jim. However, I really think this offering is an important step forward in allowing AT&T subscribers to experience another OS choice for their phones. Not everyone on AT&T wishes to own an iphone. I think this ...

$200.00??? They're going to sell 4 of these.

$200.00 is pretty steep for something that is slower than a Nexus One, is littered with the terrible HTC Sense UI, won't ship with Android 2.2, and only comes with a 2GB Memory Card.
i hope steve jobs forces ATT to put iphone4 and this htc garbage next to each other! this will make even more people to get iphone4!
iphone4 got 960x640 resolution!, while this htc garbage got HVGA at 480x320! that is like comparing a analog tv to ...
it sucks for a reason any high end Android phone on AT&T would immediately siphon sales away from their iPhone! can't have that Jobs would be a sad puppy 😢
I'll sell 4 the first week it is out to my AT&T customers who want a good Android phone.
Umm where the heck do you get $200 from??? The article says $129.
Ooops my mistake, it's $230 w/$100mir. Your right, this is a rip-off!!!!!!

At least my Droid has a 3.7in screen, much better than the 3.2in on this thing.

When are you going to get it through your head that 1) not everyone wants an iPhone and 2) Apple doesn't care anything about you. Because you will not provide top of the line phones to compete with the iPhone, you are in big trouble when Apple finally starts selling to another carrier. You should be worrying about your customers, not Apple. Offer a Samsung Galaxy S that isn't "dumbed down" for AT&T. Offer a cousin to the EVO or Incredible (assuming they get the screen problems resolved). Quit trying to make us settle for tier 2 phones!!!!!
AT&T was the only other provider to get the Nexus One, which I think is a nicer phone than the Evo and especially the Droid Incredible.

It's one of the first phones to get Froyo, it's a lot faster than both, and doesn't have HTC's crappy Sense UI....

Very Good

I am in now way an AT&T fan. However, it is good to see them adding more Android powered devices to their line up. Their consumers will now be able to experience what is becoming popular mainstream. Choice is always best.
They still need *more* choices! Supposedly there were suppose to be ?5? Android smartphones in the first half of this year.
Seems as though that was a fairy tail.

700MHz Qualcomm processor - Seriously??

How come they release a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor on the other carriers, but only 700 MHz on AT&T. Granted it runs on the awesome Android OS, AT&T probably wanted to dumb down the phones to avoid upsetting SApple.

Waayyyy too late

they shoulda had this phone with the unl data plan when it was availible anyways
first people complained about the 30 dollars unlimited data( idont use that much) now people are complaining about the new data plans
i guess people(consumers) are just complainers
Appearently ATT is a story teller when it comes to putting out 5 supposed Android handsets in the first half of the year.

I hope they continue to lose customers to the Motorola Droid, Droid X and Droid 2, and Evo 4G. That's what happens to procrast...

FINALLY!!! A NOT crappy Android on AT&T!

Thank God! The Backflip is such an awful device, about time I have a good Android to sell on AT&T!
Too late! I already left IT&T almost 3 months ago.
Besides, I'm not into all touch smartphones, gotta have a real physical, slideout keyboard.

Jun 14, 2010, 8:47 AM

How bout that! It's actually real Android. . .

Copied txt from AC's website:

A full selection of the newest and most popular Google services can be accessed with HTC Aria. This includes Google search Google Maps, Google Navigation, Gmail, YouTube and more. With Android Market, customers can also choose from more than 50,000 applications to further personalize the mobile experience.

Now if only ATT can put an Android smartphone out that actually has a real, physical, slideout keyboard!!!
I really like the sound of the phone... It's easily in the same league as the Incredible...


Now I want something in the league of the Evo ☹️

Dam AT&T... Dam them to hell.
