HTC Status: Android Phone With a Dedicated Facebook Button

As the current 11th Dr. Who might say: I like thumb keyboards. Thumb keyboards are cool (and functional). And, the Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) based HTC Status looks cool.

And, check out that blue button sitting by itself under the navigation keys. Yep, that’s a dedicated Facebook share button. Facebook integration extends to voice calls too: Every time you get or make a call, you see your friend’s profile pic and latest status update right on the call screen. If it’s their birthday that week, you’ll see that, too. Laptop mag reports that the Facebook button glows when some social activity is related to you.

The HTC Status features a 2.6-inch (480×320) touch screen as well as a physical keyboard. It has a 5 megapixel rear camera and a VGA (640×480) front-facing camera. Its GSM and 3G radios are for use on AT&T’s network.
