The first phone with a dedicated Facebook button is coming soon to an AT&T near you.
Though the phone has previously been called the "ChaCha," HTC has reportedly renamed the device the "HTC Status."
The phone, which will sport a QWERTY keyboard, will let users connect to Facebook directly from apps like the camera and address book and will also include a 2.6-inch display with 480×320-pixels resolution, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a front-facing camera for video chat. The phone will run Android's Gingerbread operating system.
A chat widget will allow users to connect with friends in groups, or privately. Other widgets will also be Facebook-centric. One will show a clock with a Facebook update stream, another a calendar populated with birthdays and events from the site. A Friend Stream widget will let users follow their closest friends.
The HTC Salsa, a touchscreen phone also featuring a Facebook button, is facing some delays and won't be available as soon as the HTC Status, according to BGR.
