HTC Aria Breaks The AT&T Chains, Lands In TaiwanBy cheatmaster 05:07 Sat, 10 Jul 2021 Comments
We aren't huge fans of mobile phones that are exclusive to a limited number of carriers, so this one sounds like very fine news. The HTC Aria is no longer available at the AT&T and Telstra only. So rejoice the rest of the world, you are about to acquire another midrange Android handset with a pretty sleek design.
The first country to acquire an unlocked
will be the HTC homeland, Taiwan. The handset should hit the shelves tomorrow but we couldn't quite see what the pricing will be. The machine-translated press release mentions 14900 yuan but considering that this is about 1700 euro, a price of 1490 seems much more likely.
Update: One of our readers tipped us that the quoted price is 14900 Taiwanese dollars, which equals just over 400 euro. Ouch!
Technically HTC haven't mentioned a word about the Aria hitting other countries, but once the exclusivity chains are broken, this should be inevitable. It's not like we can't put to fine utilize a nice small midrange Android handset with sleek design and sensible price tag around here in Europe.
