Vodafone UK has officially announced that the HTC Tattoo will be available on their European network come this October. The Tattoo is being billed as the first “entry level” phone to feature the Google Android mobile platform.
The Tattoo not only features a 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth and WiFi b/g, it also comes equipped with 3G data connectivity, a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack and a MicroSD card slot for external memory storage.
HTC calls the device the first fully “user customizable device” which allows users to set how items display on their phone, while offering swappable phone covers to further personalize the external look on their Smartphone.
The HTC Tattoo also features a decently sized 3.2 inch touchscreen, unfortunately that display is resistive rather that capacitive in nature.
Here’s the official Press Release:
