Launched back in June in the U.S. as the HTC Aria, HTC today announced that the HTC Aria is going to hit Europe as the HTC Gratia. Combining style and functionality, the sleek and compact HTC Gratia features a seamless wrap-around soft-cover that eliminates hard edges and a five megapixel autofocus camera. At just over 10 cm in length and weighing 115 g, the HTC Gratia features Android 2.2, is powered by a Qualcomm CPU at 600 MHz and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1 as well as GPS, a proximity sensor, digital compass and ambient light sensor.
The HTC Gratia also embodies the acclaimed HTC Sense experience, which places you at the centre, by making your phone work in a more personal and natural way, while providing unexpected features that put a smile on your face.
HTC Sense also offers more ways to stay connected with Friend Stream - an application that brings all Facebook, Twitter and Flickr updates into a single, organized flow of updates - making keeping in touch with friends on social networks even easier.
The HTC Gratia will be available for 399 Euro through mobile operators and retailers across major European markets from November 2010; in the U.K., the HTC Gratia will be available from anytime Q1 2011.
