HTC Tattoo

HTC User Rating:

The HTC Tattoo is quite simply a gorgeous phone. With a wide touchscreen, 3.2 MP camera, Android 1.6 OS and 113g weight, it's a great budget phone at £290.

According to HTC, HTC Tattoo is all about you. It's the first phone that can be customized inside and out. Decide how your phone looks, then decide what you want to look at. Texts? Twitter? Your photos? When you're done customizing HTC Tattoo, you'll have a phone that speaks loudly about who you are and what you're into.

We found the phone a treat to use. It's like the Palm Pre in it's simplicity - something that Android will soon be reknown for. The only drawback is that it's only available on Vodaphone.

Hopefully, they can sort that out.
