HTC Aria

What do you get when you cross the HTC Desire with the Evo 4G and Droid Incredible? From the looks of this leaked shot, you get the HTC Aria. Those are the same capacitive buttons from the Evo 4G, the blocky shape of the Droid Incredible and the trackpad from Desire (and Incredible), all rolled into a pretty small Frankenphone. That's a business card on the right, so we're not talking about a hefty device here. The Aria's been rumored for AT&T, but there's been nothing more solid than that. So maybe we'll see this one alongside the Backflip and (eventually, maybe) the Dell Aero and/or Samsung Galaxy S. Or maybe it's just the Phone that Should Not Be. [via Android Guys]

HTC Aria looks like a tiny Droid Incredible-Evo 4G mash-up

or forgone the trackpad completely. everyone i talk to with an incredible says they never use the trackpad anyways. it's a cool idea, but using the touchscreen is just as acceptable and more natural

I actually use my optic joystick all the time on my incredible even though I didn't think I would it makes correcting mistakes in text or selecting small icons that are jumbled around others very easy, takes the frustration out surfing the web on a mobile device

Looks ok but... I don't agree with the track pad and capacitive buttons on the same phone like that. I think with the track pad there should be physical buttons so you don't have to have the track pad and the buttons spaced out like that. That would avoid accidentally touching any of the capacitive buttons all the time and then you would be able to move the track pad in between the buttons and save screen space or phone size.

HD2 AND EVO R TOO LARGE FOR MY TASTE. THIS PHONE IS A LITTLE SMALL BUT I CAN DEAL WITH THAT. NOW WE MIGHT HAVE A CHOICE BETWEEN A BUSINESS CARD R A LARGE POP TART NEXT TO OUR EAR

It looks like the Incredible to me. Hopefully this will be GSM, the lefties don't have many good HTC Android phones (really the Nexus One is it).

Reminds me of the wildfire. If you think about it htc uses the same design over and over again, but making small changes.
