Well THIS is an interesting development. After the official announcement of the HTC Tattoo a couple weeks ago, we thought we knew everything there was to know about the affordable Android prior to launch. But today we’ve found two additional tidbits that make the phone all that more attractive: it will launch with Android 1.6 (Donut) and a built-in FM Radio!

Head over to the HTC Tattoo UK Specs page and see for yourself:

It looks like Vodafone customers will have first crack at the HTC Tattoo… it just popped up on the carriers website with a notice that it is “Arriving in October” – sweet!

This is great news for EVERYONE in the Android world – if the Tattoo launches with 1.6 Donut and its coming in early October, we’ll all hopefully get official Android 1.6 upgrades through our carrier shortly thereafter. Interestingly enough, the Vodafone listing fails to mention the inclusion of FM Radio.
