European version of HTC Aria
HTC has decided to release the new HTC Gratia in Europe which is nothing more than a perfect copy of HTC Aria, which was the AT&T exclusive for quite some time.
Despite the obvious name change, the HTC Gratia will get a minor update with two new colours and will come with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box. Just to remind you, the HTC Gratia is powered by Qualcomm's 600MHz processor, has 512MB of RAM and 384MB of ROM memory, has 8.1cm HVGA (320x480) capacitive touchscreen and bunch of other specs that are quite common for a smartphone these days, including GPS/A-GPS, 5 megapixel camera, digital compas, Bluetooth 2.1 and microSD slot with support for 32GB card.
The HTC Gratia measures 103.8x57.7x11.7 mm (LxWxD) and weighs 115g. As noted, it comes equipped with Android 2.2 Froyo and HTC Sense. It features a 1,200mAh battery.
According to our info the HTC Gratia will start to sell in German Media Markt and Saturn as of December while the rest of the German market should get it in early 2011. The price is set at €399. We aren't sure about the rest of the European market but we guess that they will also get it in 2011.
