Availability and pricing

The HTC Tattoo gets its name from the broad customization abilities of the smartphone. It's the second phone to offer HTC's Sense user interface, which lets you personalize seven panels with widgets, shortcuts, and wallpapers.

The device is pretty compact at 4.17 inches tall by 2.17 inches wide by 0.55 inch thick and 3.99 ounces. Despite it's smaller size, it has a solid set of features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and, of course, access to Google's various services.

The HTC Tattoo features a 2.8-inch QVGA resistive touch screen. When asked why it went with a resistive touch screen instead of a capacitive one, HTC said in a tweet, "Capacitive screens at small sizes are hard to be accurate with. Resistive ends up registering fewer miss-clicks."

Below the display, you get a handful of navigation controls, including a circular directional pad.
