Pocket-Sized HTC Aria™ Debuts In Hong Kong

HONG KONG - August 18, 2010 - HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, today introduced HTC Aria™ in Hong Kong and proudly announces SmarTone-Vodafone is the exclusive Hong Kong mobile operator partner of the HTC Aria™ and SiS International Limited is the Hong Kong exclusive distributor of the new phone. This pocket-sized dynamo packs a punch with a five megapixel camera, a bright 3.2 inch HVGA display, and offers users Android smartphone functionality in an amazingly easy-to-carry design.

HTC Aria features the acclaimed HTC Sense experience, which automatically delivers the most-wanted information by bringing it to the forefront of the mobile experience. Featuring HTC Sense, HTC Aria offers even more ways to stay connected, including Friend Stream, which delivers Facebook, Twitter and Flickr updates in a single, consolidated view.

“Its unique combination of compact size and beautiful design instantly separates HTC Aria from the pack of ‘me-too’ smartphones,” said Jack Tong, vice president of HTC Asia Pacific. “But what really differentiates HTC Aria from other smartphones is the acclaimed HTC Sense experience. By putting people at the center of everything it does, HTC Aria organizes all of your communications in the most human way possible – by person.”

A full selection of the newest and most popular Google services can be accessed with HTC Aria. This includes Google search, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube and more. With Android Market, customers can also choose from more than 70,000 applications to further personalize the mobile experience.

Along with being ultra-small at just over 10cm long and weighing a mere 115g (battery included), HTC Aria’s seamless wrap-around back cover eliminates sharp edges, making HTC Aria exceptionally convenient to carry and comfortable to hold as well.
