AT&T to Offer HTC's Android-Powered Aria

Google's Android mobile operating system continues to find its way into new devices, with the latest being the Aria, an offering from HTC that will debut exclusively on AT&T's network June 20.

AT&T boasts that the Aria is an "ultra-small" form factor, and says it will be the first of many mobile devices powered by Android 2.1 supported on its network. Enterprise Mobile Today takes a look.

Starting June 20, AT&T will be the exclusive U.S. carrier of the new HTC Aria, the latest mobile device powered by Google's (NASDAQ: GOOG) Android 2.1 software. The Aria includes a five-megapixel camera and 3.2-inch HVGA display in what AT&T described as an "ultra-small" form factor; the Aria is just over 4 inches long and weighs just 4.05 ounces.

It's also the first of what AT&T said will be several Android 2.1 devices in its mobile lineup. While the HTC Aria isn't likely to make anywhere near the splash of the much-anticipated Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone 4 coming later this month, it is a unique addition to AT&T's (NYSE: T) smartphone lineup.
