HTC ChaCha dances its way to AT&T as the HTC Status

HTC’s sociable and rhythmic ChaCha phone is finally finding a partner to dance with. According to BGR, the device could land on AT&T as soon as next week. Thankfully, Ma Bell will dump the ChaCha name for a less fabulous one like the HTC Status.

In case you forgot (which we doubt), HTC’s ChaCha is the company’s answer to that never-ending question: How can I share everything I do with the whole world? Well, you put a dedicated Facebook button right on your phone, that’s how. The ChaCha (as well as the Salsa), has a button on the bottom-right corner of the phone that lets you instantly share anything on Facebook. Want to share a picture of your cat? Press the Facebook button. Want to share that “hilarious” YouTube video of someone getting run over by a truck? Press the Facebook button. You get the idea.

Believe it or not, the HTC ChaCha is not just a Facebook status-posting machine. The device is also an Android phone, and a somewhat decent one, with all the following specs:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 2.3-inch screen with a 480 x 320 pixel resolution
  • 800 MHz single-core Qualcomm MSM7227 processor
  • 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of internal storage
  • 5 MP rear-facing camera with LED flash
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • 1250 mAh battery

I have to say, for being a low-end phone aimed at overly social tweens, the HTC ChaCha isn’t that bad. The phone has Gingerbread, which most manufacturers still ignore for their high-end phones. (I’m looking at you Motorola). Plus, it has a front-facing camera. That’s rare for a low-end phone like this. While this phone is certainly not meant for us Android fans, my guess is this phone will actually be quite popular in the Farmville-playing crowd. What do you guys think? Could you ever own a phone that has a dedicated Facebook button?
