There is a new kid on the block of smart phones. The aforementioned phone is none other than HTC Aria. It is equipped with a Google Android 2.1 platform. The phone has been launched by the service providers AT&T on a price bracket of 130 dollar with the data usage contract binding the user for at least two years.  There was a hue and cry with many saying that this price bracket for a middle level phone was too much, and then Dell sent down the bomb by offering the same phone for free.

HTC Aria is a solid stylish phone with a 3.4 inch touch screen phone. The design is very minimal and the surface is very smooth and seamless, the casing is Aluminum which gives the phone a sophisticated look. The phone had the dimensions of 4.1 by 2.3 by 0.5. The one amazing factor about this phone is only 3.9 ounces. The phone supports all the advanced connectivity options with AT&T’s 3G service network, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Stereo (A2DP), There is also a micro USB port for connecting it to computers for accessing a wider range of applications.

Its battery is also pretty decent for a touch phone. The Lithium Ion battery juices out power for a talk time worth of 6 hours and a total standby time of a little less than 16 days.  HTC Aria also comes with a 5 Megapixel camera with face recognition and an inbuilt flash. While this is not a camera oriented phone hence people should be disappointed if it does not match with your expectations. All in all the camera shoots pretty decent pictures for a business phone.

The operating system of HTC can be completely customized to suit your own style and way of life. HTC’s revolutionary Sense User interface enables you switch between various applications with only small touches and as a result the phone like any of its predecessors provides the users with true multitasking.

While Google’s Android has created a revolution of sorts since it is an open source operating system, and provides independent developers an option to contribute in the software. As a result the phone can be made to suit your needs for each and every application. The phone comes with preloaded applications like Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube and Google talk and some of the AT&T widgets.

Now when Dell decided to sell this phone for it also added a few more freebies to spice up the deal by providing the users with a free activation and free shipping. The package comes with all the standard accessories like charger, manual, battery, headsets and a free loaded two GB card. The memory can be expanded up to 32 GBs.  This deal is a steal and must be availed as fast as one can.
