  • A Phone for Facebook (Video)

    HTC has created the “Status,” the first phone built around Facebook, featuring a dedicated Facebook button. This is second part of the Facebook phenomenon: hard-good products conceived to appeal to the site’s 750 million users.

    Phone maker HTC has created the “Status,” the first phone built around Facebook and the first to feature a dedicated Facebook button.

    The USA Today article HTC Status Delivers Instant Facebook Access, demonstrates that HTC is the first phone maker with a strategy of this kind from launch.

    Author Mark Smith states in HTC Status Delivers Instant Facebook Access, “But phone maker HTC is looking to make all this even easier with the Status, the first phone built around Facebook and the first to feature a dedicated Facebook button….The Android-based Status, first released in Europe under the name ChaCha, was released Sunday in the U.S. and is available for $50 from AT&T with a two-year contract…HTC calls the Facebook button on the front “context-aware,” which means it will pulse with light when the phone thinks you’re doing something that could be shared on Facebook, such as reading a news article online or taking a photo…Pressing it brings up the Facebook app so you can share what you’re doing with friends.”

    This is second part of the Facebook phenomenon, hard-good products being conceived with the intent purpose of attracting some of the social site’s 750 million users.
