HTC Aria – a new Android 2.1 based device running Sense UI may be coming to AT&T soon. According to sources PhoneDog spoke to, the new smartphone shall launch on June 7 – incidentally the day when the iPhone 4G is also expected to be unveiled, or better, sold.
Details about the device are sparse at the moment, and except for the platform, nothing else is known at the moment. Nevertheless, the timing is quite interesting. HTC EVO 4G is expected to launch on June 4 – just days before the iPhone 4G launches. Motorola Droid 2 is expected soon after – in July. With HTC Aria launching on June 7, is this going to be the famous “three pronged strategy” that Google Android is going to take to combat the iPhone menace? Looks silly to me – the timing of the launch, that is.[via PhoneDog]
