I remember when it was all the rage to have a phone with interchangeable covers (anyone else have a Nokia 3310?!). All of a sudden you didn’t have to have the bog standard black or silver; you could be an individual and choose a decorative cover that reflected your personality or mood. Very exciting stuff that phone manufactures have been offering for years, but however many fancy designs and iridescent colours they offered, it was never truly “you” as all you were doing was picking someone else’s design. There was always the risk your poor little phone would have the misfortune to wear the same dress to the party as another.
Well HTC have now taken the “phone personalisation” a little further with true “phone customisation”. With the HTC Tattoo you can actually fully design your own custom cover, all done through an intuitive interface online. You can design both the front and back of the phone, changing the background colour, adding patterns, placement symbols, text and images. You can even upload your own images and photos to use – so if you want Fluffy permantly embedded into your phone cover, well now you can. Your phone will always be an individual. If you don’t have any imagination or have little trust in your aesthetic eye, you can always choose from a list of pre-designed covers to jazz up your HTC Tattoo.
It’s an Android phone so there’s access to apps galore and it’s an online gateway to all your favourites such as Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. There’s a 3.2MB camera and MP3 player (with a 3.5 mm audio jack), so it’s a good all-rounder if you like a balance between imaging and music on the go. Weighing in at 113 grams and with a 2.8-inch TFT-LCD touch-sensitive screen it’s not the smallest Android phone out there – but hey, who would see your funky design if it were!
