- HTC Desire Z is going to bell

- HTC Gratia is an Aria by another name, coming to Europe in November, It now comes with Android 2.2 as its OS, while retaining its HTC Sense top-level skin (notably without the new "new" Sense additions present in the Desire HD and Desire Z)



LONDON, UK – 18 October, 2010 – HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, today announced the European launch of HTC Gratia, a rich and elegant addition to Android's smartphone portfolio.

Combining style and functionality, the sleek and compact HTC Gratia features a seamless wrap-around soft-cover that eliminates hard edges and a five megapixel colour camera with auto focus. At just over four inches in length and weighing 4.06 ounces, it packs power thanks to Android 2.2 – the latest version of Android.

HTC Gratia also embodies the acclaimed HTC Sense™ experience, which places you at the centre, by making your phone work in a more personal and natural way, while providing unexpected features that put a smile on your face. It also offers you more ways to stay connected with Friend Stream – an application that brings all of your Facebook, Twitter and Flickr updates into a single, organized flow of updates – making keeping in touch with friends on social networks even easier.

"HTC's mantra is to provide a unique mix of experience and choice to people using our phones," said Florian Seiche, President of HTC Europe, Middle East and Africa. "HTC Gratia offers something completely different. Its compact size, beautiful design and power with Android 2.2, combined with its personalised experience through HTC Sense, is uniquely compelling. We can't wait to bring HTC Gratia to our customers in Europe."

The HTC Gratia will be available through mobile operators and retailers across major European markets from November 2010.

At first glance it appears that camera angle might account for the uniquely long shape, but a second in-hand comparison shot (below) clearly shows a device whose aspect ratio is closing in on the 21:9 found on LG's BL40 Chocolate Touch (which sports a 345 x 800 resolution)
