HTC Tattoo

 

HTC has played the biggest part in bringing Android to the masses. If you want a new operating system to take off, you need to gain some degree of market base, which is why the HTC Tattoo is exciting. Like the Huawei's T-Mobile Pulse, the HTC Tattoo is...

Affordable, compact, HTC Sense, full tech spec sheet

Marketplace currently a little sparse, resistive touchscreen downgrades the experience, onscreen keyboard a little too small

Overall the HTC Tattoo experience is a good one. Sure, it is a noticeable step down from the Hero and rightly so. You don't get the same touch response and it doesn't look as sharp as the Hero. The keyboard experience isn't as good (with a caveat on...

A snappy little Android phone with a decent camera and HTC's Sense software, it's overshadowed by Samsung's better-value Galaxy Portal

HTC Tattoo review

 

The HTC Tattoo smartphone employs a much more familiar smartphone design when compared to the Hero. There is no oddly shaped Jay Leno chin here - the Tattoo has a compact, rounded body and its curved edges feel comfortable and reassuring when the...

The HTC Tattoo is a fine smartphone, but the small, lower-resolution display and the lack of multitouch may force many users to shell out extra for the more expensive Hero.

Review: HTC Tattoo

 

An affordable Android handset

Budget Android phone; HTC Sense; 3.5mm audio jack

Virtual keyboard too cramped in regular mode; small resistive touch-screen can be unresponsive

The HTC Tattoo is a decent inexpensive phone that offers the Android platform along with the HTC Sense user interface. It is slightly let down by the small resistive screen, which takes some getting used to if you've been used to a capacitive screen.

a great pusher of the Android operating system on mobile phones, dating back as far as October of 2008 with the first Google OS handset - the T-Mobile G1. Since then it has produced most of the world's supply of Android mobile phones, with only a few...

HTC Tattoo

 

The HTC Tattoo brings Android to the mid-range, style focused user. With interchangeable covers and an uncompromised Android experience its worth a look.

Uncompromised Android experience with HTC Sense Experience UI.

The touch experience isnt as good as previous HTC Android devices.
