HTC Aria available from AT&T on June 20

HTC looks like it is up to more smartphone tricks than just the EVO 4G. Take a look at the HTC Aria, and you will notice that it bears a strong resemblance to EVO.
The HTC Aria will be available from AT&T, and it will be available on June 20, which is Father’s Day. That is about four days before another big phone from AT&T is scheduled to appear. I’m talking about the iPhone 4, in case you need more than a subtle hint. By the way, you can pre-order the iPhone 4 from Best Buy tomorrow.
As for specs, the HTC Aria has a 3.2 inch screen, similar to that of the Legend. It has Sense UI and Android 2.1, and no word of any updates to Froyo, or Android 2.2. It also has a 600 MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 processor, 512 MB of ROM, as well as a 5 Megapixel camera with LED Flash.
The Aria is WiFi capable with more than 20,000 hotspots across the United States. It also is compatible with AT&T’s High Sped Pack Access (HSPA) 7.2 Mbps technology for a boost to 3G speeds.
As I’ve said before, the HTC Aria will be out just in time as a gift to your Dad, for about $129 with a $100 mail-in rebate.
