A source of Phonedog’s chimed in to give them the rundown on a new device being worked on under the wraps for AT&T. It’s called the Aria and it will supposedly be unveiled June 7th (basically, iPhone day) at an unnamed event. It’s said that it would be running Android 2.1 with the latest version of Sense.
Could this be the same QWERTY Android that AndroidForums.com member ‘maerlim‘ heard about from an HTC rep at Best Buy a few weeks back? He described the device as “an upgraded Tilt with Android”, but initial impressions weren’t that great. We can’t speak on that, of course, but here’s hoping that all of this is true and that AT&T could be getting their first HTC phone with Android.
Phonedog’s expecting some pictures and more specifications soon, so we’ll be all over it should anything surface. For now, this sounds a lot like the HTC-manufactured QWERTY Android we saw pass the FCC not too long ago that we once believed could be the already-announced HTC Wildfire (complete with AT&T-compatible data bands). June 7th is shaping up to be a momentous day for AT&T.
