AT&T offers HTC Status beginning today
For just $49 with a signed two-year pact, or $399 off contract, you can buy the HTC Status starting today at AT&T's stores and web site. The Stateside version of the HTC ChaCha features the Facebook button on the bottom of the device. When the button glows, it means the user is using a feature on the phone that offers Facebook functionality, including updating the user's, ahem, status.

Looking at pictures on the 2.6 inch landscape oriented display (480 x 320 resolution) that you've taken with the 5MP camera, tapping the Facebook button will send those shots to your wall. See a great shot for your page? The handset is designed to allow you to focus a picture, take the shot and have it uploaded to the social networking site all by clicking the Facebook button instead of the camera shutter. Listening to a killer track? Tap the button and it is added to your Facebook profile. When it is time to chat with one of your friends, you open a special widget on your home screen and Facebook chat is opened with a BlackBerry-esque portrait-oriented physical QWERTY keyboard right below the screen..

Some of the other specs on the HTC Status include Android 2.3.3 installed (which beats out some of the higher-end phones stuck on Froyo), a microSD slot that accepts up to 32GB in additional storage and a Qualcomm MSM7227 800MHz processor that will get things done. For self-portraits or for video chats, a .3MP front-facing camera is aboard and a 1250mAh battery comes with the handset to keep users connected to the social network for hours.

Really not a bad phone - could give iphony 3GS a run for its money....oh, but nevermind, because it is not an iphone - just like the commercial says....

TBH if this came with a 1gb processor, bigger screen then i would have considered this phone. Even with the FB button. Just sad that this is the only offering from ATT with 2.3..

I hate to say this but the ChaCha and Salsa are both going to be massive flops that no ones going to pay 4. This is sad. The only phone worth buying currently on AT&T's lineup is the Samsung infuse 4G.

The other sad thing is that for the same price on contract the Infuse 4G is available.
