Exclusive: HTC Paradise and Fiesta caught in the wild!

5 Aug

HTC has been hiding too many Android phones up its sleeves and it is about time that some of them started showing up. One of our readers, DB, claims that he managed to snap up two unknown HTC Android smartphones that were AT&T samples on Craigslist and sought our help out to know what they were. Turns out that he had the HTC Fiesta and Paradise, both running Android.



The Paradise appears to be a variant of the Aria and has a slide-out QWERTY keypad. We were the first to write about the Paradise when we had the UA profile of seven unannounced HTC phones way back in January.



The Aria was an AT&T exclusive and has just been launched in Taiwan and might even be launched in India. It has specs similar to the Hero but in a more conventional design sans the chin. The Paradise shares the same looks and adds a QWERTY keyboard to it.



Out tipster says the Fiesta has a 3.2 MP camera and that’s all that he knows about it. We had first written about the Fiesta over a year ago and indicated that it might be headed over to AT&T. In all probability, we believe that the Fiesta has been scrapped. Then again, we have seen stranger things happening and this might be one of them!

    […] You remember those names, don’t you? At one point, Fiesta was associated with HTC’s Tattoo (pre-release), though that appears to have been a case of mistaken identity. The first image below, which CellPassion is calling Fiesta, doesn’t have the right button configuration to be attached to Tattoo. Then again, the photo could represent a scrapped prototype – as CP supposes – and possibly the predecessor to Tattoo. The second picture features the HTC Paradise, which is basically an Aria with a slide-out QWERTY. This one could still be headed for AT&T. Via CellPassion […]
