HTC Status now available from AT&T

Those of you looking for the easiest and fastest way to share your life with hundreds or even thousands of friends on Facebook can find the HTC Status online or at your local AT&T store for $49.99 with a two year contract. (Or $399.99, if you’re not willing to sign your life away to AT&T).

If you don’t have the cash for the HTC Status, AT&T is also featuring a sweepstakes promotion. You could win an HTC Status by sharing news about the phone with your friends.  Simply visit the HTC Status share page on AT&T’s website, give them your email address and share the news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or other social networks.  If five of your friends visit the site with your link, you’re automatically entered to win the HTC Status.

While many have shunned the HTC Status as a gimmick due to its slow processor and dedicated Facebook buttons, I do have to commend HTC for stepping out of their mold. They’ve delivered a great portrait keyboard phone for those who simply don’t want or need a full-featured smartphone with a dual-core processor or a screen so big it barely fits in your pocket.  The HTC Status is a modest phone for modest people who simply want a little more than the flip phone they’ve been holding on to for the past few years.

If you’ve had the chance to play with the HTC Status or have picked one up for yourself, leave us a comment below and let us know what you think.
