HTC Tattoo Android Smartphone Software Hands-on

The upcoming HTC Tattoo is HTC's first Android smartphones which comes with the recently released Android version 1.6 (Donut) preinstalled. Donut adds a lot of new benefits and features to the Android platform but HTC also adds its newHTC Sense UI, the company introduced with the launch of the HTC Hero. The HTC Tattoo features the new Android 1.6 quick search box as well as the new battery usage indicator, the new Android Market, VPN, 802.1x and the new text-to-speech engine but not new camera and camcorder UI and gallery because these were replaced with HTC applications.

HTC Sense on the other hand greatly improves the whole homescreen usability by offering a fully customizable and widget-based user interface. For instance HTC Sense can push content like Twitter, weather and other content to the surface while others may want quick access to business-focused information like E-Mail, calendar and world-times. Furthermore, HTC Sense features a Windows Mobile-like smart dialer interface for making calls quicker.

Like all other Android smartphones from HTC, the HTC Tattoo also features all Google services like Google Maps, YouTube and calendar and contacts synchronization with Gmail.

The combination of the device size and design, Android 1.6 and HTC Sense makes the HTC Tattoo an interesting budget and mass-market Android smartphone. It offers an easy to use entry-point for smartphone and Android novices as well as enough features and flexibility for professionals.
