The new Aria is a slightly more compact version of the HTC Legend with similar 3.2-inch 320×480-pixel resolution LCD panel and the same 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor.
The only disappoint aspect of the Aria is that it comes with Android 2.1 (Eclair) operating system. With lots of promises of Android 2.2 (Froyo) phones just around the corner, this might be one of the last Eclair OS phones we see. The Aria also comes with a slightly smaller battery compared with the Legend, which shows up in reduced battery life in comparison.
The Aria features the same Sense UI as other HTC phones as well as access to the Android Market, where you can peruse over 80,000 different apps for the phone.
The phone is only available from Optus and only available on contract. The telco is available to consumers and small business buyers on a $0 upfront/$49 per month deal for 24 months. Total cost $1176.
