First pictures of the HTC ChaCha for AT&T leak out
The portrait QWERTY HTC ChaCha doesn't break new ground with its hardware, but it does bring Facebook integration to a whole new level through a remodeled Sense UI with support for the social network and a dedicated Facebook button. The ChaCha was announced back in February, but it's just now that the first pictures of the AT&T-branded HTC ChaCha leaked out and some minor yet noticeable changes have been made. 

First of all, the AT&T HTC ChaCha shows July 17th on its clock, an indicator for the device's possible release date as originally the handset was unveiled on Feb 15th and you can see that date on the device on the right. In any case, the phone is expected to hit AT&T shelves this quarter. Additionally, the screenshot reveals that the ChaCha will only sport 3G radio.

Secondly, the Facebook button looks rounded on the AT&T ChaCha, but along with that some changes to the keyboard layout have also been made: the Alt key replaces the Fn button, Shift comes in place of the Tab and the Euro symbol has been changed for a “.com” button. Recently, the 2.6-inch ChaCha got upgraded to an 800MHz processor, up from the initial 600MHz – a welcome addition for the Sense UI.

This is not a top-of-the-line Android handset by any means... if I knew I was going to be stuck with AT&T for another two years, and I needed a cheap smartphone that ran Android, I "might" pick this one. Is it a fantastic super-smartphone? Nope. But I don't need a 1GHz processor, or an 8Mpix camera (or even 5Mpix for that matter), or a really awesome looking phone, or a gigantic 4+ in. touch screen... I do like the idea of Facebook integration and a physical keyboard, though. If indeed the whole world is moving to a cloud-based-only system, then this would probably keep me connected, more than I even need to be honestly. If AT&T gives them away for free w/ 2 yr. contract at some point, and if I was in the market for something different at the time, I would be tempted... slightly...
