It appears the rumors that the HTC Tattoo will receive an official update to Eclair weren't true.  James over at Tracy and Matt has received an official response from HTC that pretty much shoots down the rumor with just one line:

"Currently there are no plans to update the HTC Tattoo with éclair."

HTC has been known to change its mind, and Tattoo owners can only hope that it happens again.  The Tattoo for sure isn't a powerhouse, but it's a nice little phone that fills a niche in Android's lineup.  Since the Tattoo was released just last November, it's pretty disheartening to find out that it's already reached the end of it's software update path.   Any readers using one of these small sexy phones?  Sound off in the comments!
