Vodafone has announced it will offer the new Android-powered HTC Tattoo.

The HTC Tattoo, available exclusively in black on Vodafone, gets "HTC Sense", a twist on the user interface that claims to integrate communications and applications including voice calls, emails, texts, photos and status updates into one consolidated view.

With the Google bits you'd expect from an Android device, the "mass-market" Tattoo offers a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera, 3.5mm stereo headset jack and expandable microSD memory.

Specs include a 528 MHz Qualcomm MSM7225 processor, 512MB ROM, 256MB RAM, 2.8-inch touchscreen with 240 x 320 QVGA resolution, HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR and Wi-Fi.

Due to be available in October, but with no pricing yet revealed, Vodafone says customers can "pre-register" for the exclusive HTC Tattoo on its online shop.
