HTC Tattoo review: Your phone, your ink

12 March 2010
The HTC Tattoo wants to redefine smart in smartphone. This affordable little thing was among the first droids to go mass-market. But run-of-the-mill specs don’t mean a boring personality. The HTC Tattoo wears its heart on the sleeve and a shirt...

        I love how my phone shows my personality. I design my own phone from the cover till the wallpaper i have. I'm ordering ink supplies online for cheaper prices of different ink to use on my phone housing designs.

Which would mean that a bicycle company could so a different one for also having a steer or saddle. What's next, sueing some phone provider for also having the possibility to send texts?

                      I have one for 3 days now. I can honestly say that I'm really pleased with this small PDA, which offers much for few money.

I'm a professional photographer and I designed and bought some covers from the tatoomyhtc site. It's a nice touch... everyone smile when they see my pictures on the phone... and a different one once in a while!

                        Nice option.

                            Anonymous, 15 Mar 2010I agree, mine also have flash support.I think flash support has been specifically added by HTC on top of the original android browser as the native one does not support flash. Also other third party Android browsers such as Dolphin, Steel and Opera do not seem to support flash!

                                The review says "No Flash support for the web browser". I have the UK version and the browser does support flash. Not sure which version they reviewed?

                                    Thank you GSM Arena for eventually reviewing the HTC Tattoo, and as always this is the best review of the Tattoo on the web. If you look for value for money smart phones there are only 2 choices BlackBerry 8520 and HTC Tattoo. There is nothing more expensive smart phones can do that the aforementioned can't.

                                        this is good for mothers cause of the resistive touchscreen, some mothers have problems adapting to the capacitive methods and they don't care about all that pinch to zoom showcase

                                        and its a budget Android with Sense, great gift for them

                                        Thanks GSMarena, great review like always, gonna pick one up for my mum!
