AT&T has not yet had an HTC Google Android device and they decided to launch one just a couple of days before the iPhone 4 launch. HTC packed a lot into this small compact HTC Sense device and for the most part is sails along quite nicely.

The AT&T retail box contents may be slightly different, but this box contained a USB cable, A/C charging adapter, battery, and wired stereo headset.

The back of the Aria is a bit striking with see through plastic on the bottom so you can see some of the internals.

Four corner screws are visible on the back of the Aria and show through the back cover.

You do not have to take out the battery to access the microSD card slot that is adjacent to the SIM card slot on the back.

As you can see the four corners screws show through openings in the back cover. A 5 megapixel camera and speaker grill are up towards the top of the back.
