HTC has introduced the HTC Tattoo, an attractive Android-powered full-featured smartphone that will supposedly be affordable to the general public. The HTC Tattoo is the official name of the long-rumored HTC Click device that first appeared this summer.

Under the hood, the Tattoo features a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7225 processor along with 512MB of ROM and 256MB of RAM. A 2.8-inch resistive touchscreen(INFO) display with QVGA (240 x 320 pixel) resolution is something a bit new for Android devices, in that most devices so far feature half-VGA resolution capacitive touchscreen(INFO) displays. The Tattoo uses the HTC Sense based user interface, which consolidates voice calls, emails, texts, photos and status updates for individual contacts under one view.

HSDPA and WiFi data connectivity are included onboard for high-speed transfers and GPS is bundled in for navigation features. On the multimedia front, users can snap photos and shoot video with the Tattoo's 3.2 megapixel camera. Storing music on external microSD(INFO) cards, users can listen to their tunes with 3.5mm headphones or with Bluetooth 2.0 for use with wireless headsets and headphones.

The name Tattoo was given to the device because users can also create custom covers or select from popular designs to personalize the look of their device.

The HTC Tattoo will be available in Europe in early October with additional markets in coming months. Pricing for the device has not been announced, but HTC says it is bringing the device to the "masses."
