Vodafone to release HTC Tattoo in October


Vodafone has announced that it will be launching the HTC Tattoo in October next month and exclusively in black! The HTC Tattoo was designed to be a lower-end Android powered mobile phone and thus becoming more affordable for everyone to use. That said, it is still pretty full featured, containing a 3.2 auto-focus megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, Quadband support, MicroSD support and a 2.8 Capacitive Touch screen.

Below is the official press release.


Following last week’s announcement of the Nokia E72, LG GM750 and Sony Ericsson XPERIA™ X2, Vodafone UK will be ranging another innovative smartphone exclusive. The new Android-powered HTC Tattoo is a smartphone which will keep you entertained and up to date wherever you are.

The HTC Tattoo, available exclusively in black on Vodafone UK, lets you customise your own mobile experience using the latest HTC Sense technology. It delivers lots of the features of the enormously successful HTC Magic at an affordable price, for example, you can create shortcuts to your favourite internet sites, social networks, games, widgets and applications – and there’s an amazing opportunity to personalise your phone further with thousands more applications and widgets available for download in the simple to use Android Market. Android also gives you quick and easy access to popular Google services such as Google Maps, Google Mail and Google Search as well as favourites like YouTube.

Take your favourite snaps with the 3.2 megapixel camera with sharp focus, and view them on the HTC Tattoo’s high resolution screen or upload them to your social network via the handset’s superfast internet connection. And you are able to alter the look of your phone further with the unique covers that you can design yourself and purchase, or simply choose one from popular cover designs available.

Key features of the exclusive black HTC Tattoo include:

  • 3.2MP Camera
  • Android technology
  • FM Radio and MP3 player
  • 2.8″ Touchscreen
  • Unique personalised covers

No word on prices and the price plans available for a free handset but HTC are throwing their weight behind the dynamic and impressive Android platform and with the HTC Tattoo, it should reach a wider audience beyond the currently released HTC G1, Magic, MyTouch and Hero devices.
