Rendered shots of HTC handsets with dedicated Facebook buttons leak

Simply, we heard nothing more than a solid “no” from Rose as he quickly said last month, “The rumors around there being something more to this HTC device are overblown.” Well, it’s rather difficult to take those word seriously because rendered shots of two HTC devices have been recently leaked indicating a dedicated Facebook button of some sort on them. From the sound of it all, it’s being reported that the button will simply enable quick access to your Facebook account as opposed to going through the normal menu routine.
The first device looks similar to any other HTC touchscreen phone of late that we’ve been seeing from the manufacturer, while the second one packs on a portrait style keyboard which looks reminiscent of the aging HTC Snap. Still, seeing renders with these dedicated Facebook buttons makes you question about them being branded specifically as Facebook phones. Regardless, we’ll all hopefully learn more at HTC’s MWC press event.

Phonearena, come on. These are both EARLY htc renders with (crappy) photoshopping done. The qwerty device is one of the first reported Android device mock ups. The touch screen is a mockup done for what the "Hero 2" might have looked like. Not happening.

This is obviously fake, no matter how popular facebook is. Nobody is going to put a dedicated facebook button on the phone. That just sticks out like a sore thumb and looks horrible. These photos are photoshopped, hell I could do a better job making fake photoshopped phones. In fact, why don't I? I'll make up some fake iphone 5 photoshop photos and I bet PA will eat it up. lol
