HTC has announced the HTC Gratia, destined for Europe from next month onwards. If you’re wondering isn’t that the HTC Aria? We don’t blame you as both are very identical in terms of design and hardware. The only difference is the VGA camera at the front.
Just like the Aria, the Gratia is powered with 600MHz processor together with 512MB of ROM and 384MB of RAM. You’ll also get the same 3.2″ HVGA screen at 320×480 resolution. However a pleasant inclusion is Android 2.2 Froyo which should offer better performance over its 2.1 running Aria sibling.
Three colours are available: white, black and green as shown above.

According to a Bloomberg report, Sony Ericsson is phasing out Nokia dominated Symbian platform as they claim that the ecosystem isn’t as good as Android. Its CEO Djurberg also added that a X10 successor is expected to be announced this quarter and they would need to launch a Windows Phone 7 device soon.
Sony Ericsson did a horrible job on Symbian and did even worse on Android platform. Now they want to jump right into Windows Phone 7? We simply can’t understand what is their focus right now. When Sony Ericsson started to offer Android, we’re pretty excited as we would expected them to make feature-packed phones with no compromises. In the past, Ericsson was at the forefront of mobile technology especially at the time when Bluetooth and GPRS was introduced. We’re sure you remembered their flagship phones like the R380 symbian smartphone and the T39 which is among the first few to have Bluetooth and GPRS support.
Today, their latest Android line up is still running an older Android 1.6. Even the latest Xperia X8 was not spared while its Android rivals are churning out 2.2 Froyo devices right now. Their last flagship Symbian device, the Satio was utterly rubbish when it comes to usability. Our point is simple, if they can’t even do a proper job on Android, why bother with Windows Phone 7?

SK Telecom is a big Android advocate and they had tremendous success with their bundling of Samsung Galaxy S in Korea. To celebrate their Android fever, they have released a special Android figurine pack called ANDROSKI that flexes. You could even turn this into a handphone stand for your android device too. Pretty neat accessory coming from a telco. Maxis should consider having one too since they are the most active Android player in Malaysia. You can check out Androski website here but its all in Korean.
Check out the video of the figurine after the jump along SK’s press video of their on ground Android campaign.
