I’m never really sure whether to post “handset now on x” posts however I do like the ChaCha so I decided, what the hell, why not!
AT&T now have the ChaCha available though under it’s psuedo US name of HTC Status.
Priced at $50 and the normal $15 data plan on a two year contract the HTC Status will be available in white/silver and mauve.
This is quite a big deal for AT&T though as it’s the first handset on their network to be powered by Android 2.3 a.k.a Gingerbread AND it’s the first handset in the IS to feature the new deeper Facebook integration and the funky f button.
The dedicated Facebook share button allows you to
- Post instantly on your wall or a friend’s wall by pressing the Facebook share button from your home screen.
- Take a picture or shoot a video and share it instantly with a press of the Facebook share button. You can also post multiple pictures at one time and label and tag them before posting. Or even post photos automatically as you’re taking them.
- Check in to Facebook Places by pressing and holding the Facebook share button from the home screen.
- Share something cool on the Web with a quick press of the Facebook share button and be the first with the news.
- Let your friends in on the music you love with the push of a button by pressing the Facebook share button to post the song title and other details.
The HTC Status includes a 5-megapixel rear camera (with autofocus and LED flash) and a front camera for capturing special moments and instantly sharing the photos through Facebook. The 2.6-inch touchscreen has a resolution of 480×320.
