My new gadget HTC Tattoo powered by Android OS and HTC Sense technology. Costs around INR 17,000. Comes with all that I need to stay connected with all social media like flickr, picasa, facebook, twitter etc. GPS works well with Google Maps, trying to work with OpenStreet Maps in coming days.  All that I’m trying to do on this immediately is to get it working with Kannada support for reading and writing (Hopefully I will get enough time in my busy schedule to play with it). You can find few pics uploaded from directly from HTC on my Facebook account. Shall tweet and write more about my experience with Tattoo soon.
