So you thought that HTC would be resting after unveiling a handful of Windows Phone 7 powered phones last Monday. Well that’s obviously not the case as the Taiwanese cell phone makers have announced yet another Android handset and they are calling it HTC Gratia.

Boy, these folks are never short of unique and interesting name for their smartphones are they? Anyways if you have heard about HTC Aria, the AT&T subsidized Android gadget, then you know quite a bit about this device except for the fact that it is headed to Europe.

So here is what the device has in store for you from the specs perspective:

  • Android 2.2 aka Froyo.
  • 5 MP camera with auto-focus.
  • Front facing VGA camera
  • 600 Mhz processor.
  • 512 MB ROM.
  • 348 MB RAM.
  • 3.2 inch multi-touch screen of QVGA quality.
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • HTC Sense

From the above features list, it is pretty clear that the device is a budget smartphone. Major European carriers will be offering residence to the HTC Gratia. The handset price will range somewhere around 300EU (roughly $415).

So what makes this device unique? According to HTC:

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

I am not sure if that’s the smartphone for me considering the high performance I demand from a smartphone. What about you?
