Excerpt: HTC Chacha is one of the new releases lined up by HTC that is trying to make social networking a little more than an integral part of mobile life. What better than facebook, to get such integration going, for a generation hooked on to their virtual existence.
Excerpt: We first eyed the HTC Status back in February at MWC where it was first debuted as the HTC ChaCha, but also as the Facebook Phone. The HTC ...
Pros: Excellent form-factor with great keyboard, beautiful Sense UI really extends the usefulness of this device, affordably priced, great build quality and design, excellent social network integration

Conclusion: Despite its app (and Flash) shortcomings, the ChaCha is refreshing new addition to HTC phone portfolio, bringing their reliable Android know-how to a messenging, keyboard-toting smartphone.

Summary: When HTC announced the Status, its first phone that fully integrates with Facebook, I thought it would be a cheap gimmick. To be clear, the Status is not the Facebook phone, but it is the first major smartphone to launch with deep Facebook integration.

Cons: Web page text can be small and requires zooming, Rear speaker not loud enough for music or speakerphone, Video recording isn’t that great, Styling may not be for everyone
