HTC unveils latest Android phone

HTC released its fourth phone based on Google's Android platform, the Tattoo, promising users a new level of customization. The news comes days after Sprint Nextel said it would launch the HTC Hero and right before Motorola is set to unveil its first Android offerings.

The UI lets users put a contact's photo alongside their text messages, emails and call history in a single view. Similar to the Push Internet feature that HTC unveiled at Mobile World Congress, Sense will give users customizable, push-based widgets such as weather, Twitter and email.

The phone has support for 900/2100MHz HSPA/UMTS, a 2.8-touchscreen display, 3.2-megapixel camera, WiFi, a digital compass and a 3.5mm headset jack.

The device will be available beginning in October in European markets, and in other markets around the world in the following months. HTC did not announce any carrier partners or pricing information.
