AT&T has expanded its Android smartphone portfolio with the addition of HTC Aria, which will available exclusively at AT&T beginning June 20, 2010.

The new HTC Aria is ultra-small at just over 4-inches long, weighs around 4.05 ounces and comes with wrap-around soft-touch back cover that eliminates sharp edges. It is compatible with AT&T’s High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) 7.2Mbps technology and is capable to receive access to AT&T Wi-Fi.

According to AT&T, the new Aria features Android 2.1 platform, five megapixel camera and a 3.2-inch HVGA display and offers AT&T customers Android smartphone functionality in an easy-to-carry design.

The HTC Aria comes with a responsive capacitive touch screen and an optical joystick that makes it a smartphone for mobile broadband. It also includes HTC Sense experience, which automatically delivers the most-wanted information by bringing it to the forefront of the mobile experience.

In addition, Google services can be accessed with HTC Aria, including search, maps, navigation, Gmail, YouTube and more, the company said.

Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC America, said: "What really differentiates HTC Aria from other smartphones is the acclaimed HTC Sense experience, which we are pleased to be bringing to AT&T customers. By putting people at the center of everything it does, HTC Aria organises all of your communications in the most human way possible by person."
