The HTC Tattoo (formerly known as the HTC Click) is a phone manufactured by the HTC Corporation for the Android platform.[1][2] It is the second phone to feature the HTC Sense[3] interface. The phone was announced on 8 September 2009.

Unlike other Android handsets from HTC, the Tattoo has a resistive touchscreen instead of a capacitive touchscreen. The device's designer explained that it was tested with a capacitive display, but that multi-touch simply wasn't practical on such a small screen,[4] while the company's Twitter feed states that a capacitive screen is insufficiently accurate at this size.[5] The resistive screen may also reduce costs. It has been confirmed by HTC that all future Android handsets will use capacitive screens, making the Tattoo the last one to use resistive.

Customisable covers[edit]

The HTC Tattoo was the first smartphone from the company with fully customisable covers. The phone's plastic shell can be removed and replaced with one of a design of the owner's choice.[7] The now no longer available TattooMyHTC website was launched on 12 October 2009, offering pre-made designs for €11.99 or personalised designs for €14.99.
