HTC Tattoo to get Android 2.1 upgrade

Well well, this is interesting news indeed and it shows how committed HTC are to Android and their loyal early adopters. According to French website Frandroid the budget HTC Tattoo smartphone will be getting an official 2.1 upgrade.

Kindly note we understand that now that a phone running Android OS 2.1 is available that you are excited to get an update for your Tattoo. We are still working hard to building Sense for this new version but we expect to have the upgrade finished and ready to go soon. Please understand that it takes time to customize any Android version to ensure you have the intuitive experience Sense provides, and we hope you can be patient for just a little while longer.

While no ETA was given, the news is interesting because the HTC Tattoo is one of the lower specified Android handsets on the market right now and many believe the SenseUI does eat up a lot of processing power to run effectively. It brings hope to those running older hardware such as the G1 that they will also get the upgrade, since the Vodafone Magic will be getting a 2.0 upgrade sometime soon.
