The HTC Aria is the second Android-powered smartphone to make its way to AT&T's network, and will undoubtedly be a favorite among consumers deciding between the iPhone 4 and another smartphone from AT&T's lineup. Of course, the Apple iPhone 4 is a high-end smartphone (with a high-end price tag to match) that offers a number of improvements over previous iPhone models including a higher resolution display, longer battery life, a front-facing camera for video chat, and a faster processor.
The HTC Aria sports the powerful and highly customizable Android operating system along with HTC's chic Sense user interface built on top. The Aria is an impressively compact device, although its compactness means a smaller and lower resolution display than the iPhone 4. While there are certainly no shortage of fans of Apple's minimalistic iOS, many users prefer the advanced customization options and Widgets characteristic of Android. Although a powerful device in its own right, the iPhone 4 has a faster processor than the Aria, and (depending on the iPhone 4 model) at least twice the storage space of the Aria right out of the box.
On contract, the iPhone 4 will be $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model. When it hits Wirefly, the Aria will be a fraction of the cost of the iPhone 4 for new and upgrading customers.
