HTC Aria coming to AT&T as early as next month

AT&T made it known several months ago that they would be launching an Android-exclusive from HTC, but few details have been revealed since then. We saw the HTC PC70110 (pictured above) pass through the FCC with AT&T 3G bands and it sounds like that device could become the HTC Aria.

A trusted tipster has informed PhoneDog that AT&T will unveil the Aria at an event on June 7th. Look for this device to feature Android 2.1 with HTC’s Sense UI and a full QWERTY keyboard.

The Motorola Backflip is AT&T’s only Android phone and many customers have been waiting for a more high-end device. I’m having a hard time getting excited about any Android phone on AT&T, but hopefully the Aria improves upon the unique experience offered by the Backflip.

    Wait. June 7th? That’s the date of Apple’s WWDC. A quite weird date for such an announcement.

      And will absolutely get overshadowed “Just one more thing…”

        BY “One more thing…”

        Grammer fail.

          It’s spelled GRAMMAR. With an A not an E. Dumbass.

    That looks like a small screen. It looks like AT&T still doesn’t get it.

    That qwerty looks VERY similar to the G1′s.. which is absolutely fantastic and really easy to type with. But this announcement seems too sudden, I bet there’s a ton of bureaucracy that will get in the way.

    Yay! Another Android handset for AT&T to cripple! First the Backflip, then the Aero and now this!

    Yes the Aero.

    There’s still the Samsung i897 (samsung galaxy) that’s coming to AT&T soon. As well as the Sony X10.

    Both those devices are good high end devices, especially the x10.

    The problem with all this is how many times have we been told another android phone is coming to AT&T. It’s almost June and we still only have the backflip. I broke down and just got a Nexus One because I am sick of waiting for AT&T to release old, crippled hardware.

    Prove me wrong AT&T.
