HTC Status goes up for pre-order on AT&T's web site - $49.99 with a 2-year contract
Furthermore, the handset is graced with the extremely reasonable 2-year on-contract price of $49.99 – making it potentially a win-win deal for anyone who’s interested. The so-called Facebook Phone, named the HTC ChaCha overseas, is known for its lovely looking portrait style QWERTY form factor, but more importantly, it features that distinctive Facebook button that instantly presents you with the myriad of features customarily associated with the social networking giant’s services. Interestingly enough, Best Buy will be offering an exclusive color when it lands stateside.
July 17th, which is less than a week from today. Therefore, if you’re seriously digging this one and want to assure yourself a unit, you might as well place that pre-order for yourself right now.

Not even people who update their status every 30 seconds would buy this

hopefully this phone will sell very slowly and be a horrible hit so that way cell phone manufacturers and providers will think twice before releasing another facebook device. I mean seriously, what is the point of a facebook button when HTC sense has it so that the friends stream is on one of the homescreens.

I haven't understood why this was even made. My inspire's screen in nearly 2in bigger than this tiny screen thing, and facebook a breeze to use thanks to the ui. There is no need to a facebook button at all. This fad should cost almost nothing imo.

I remember another little company trying to release a social networking phone. Does anyone Remember the Microsoft Kin 1 and 2? They were pulled like a month or two after being release.... and then re-released and pulled again a month later. They were horrible phones.
