Facebook-loving HTC ChaCha on its way to Canada (via Telus)
If you’re in Canada and have always* dreamed of having a Facebook button on your phone, Telus seems to be getting ready to make your dream come true
Mobile Syrup has just received an image of an HTC ChaCha running on Telus’ network, so the carrier will likely launch the handset sometime soon.
The HTC ChaCha is one of the world’s first Android devices to come with deep Facebook integration. It runs 2.3 Gingerbread and features a 2.6 inch HVGA landscape display, full QWERTY keyboard, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 800MHz processor, and MicroSD card support.
The HTC ChaCha will be released in the US, too, possibly in the next few weeks, thanks to AT&T (which has reportedly decided to rename the handset and call it HTC Status).
* – of course, always doesn’t literally mean always here, since you couldn’t have dreamed of anything that’s Facebook related prior to 2004 (Facebook didn’t exist then).
