HTC Aria on AT&T

A new android device has finally been released on AT&T. The first Android device, the Motorola Backflilp, was loaded with bloatware and had an older version of Android. The Aria has Android 2.1 (with the HTC Sense UI on top) and doesn’t have nearly as much bloatware as the backflip. Yes, there are AT&T specific apps but that should be expected. AT&T has also blocked the ability to download non-market applications from being installed, but that can be explained (even though it is an inconvenience).

Here are the specs copied from HTC’s website:
