HTC Status Facebook Smartphone

685624.jpg

AT&T will carry the HTC Status, the first smartphone with a dedicated Facebook Share Button targeted to users who love posting on Facebook what they're doing, seeing or listening to. The Facebook button lets you quickly share what you are doing on Facebook with a simple press. It is also context aware and lights up when there is an activity to share, such as a song you are listening to, a website you are viewing or a photo you have taken.

The HTC Status runs on the Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) platform, AT&T's first smartphone to do so. It is also the first phone in the U.S. with an enhanced version of HTC Sense that integrates Facebook into more places than ever before. Facebook content and information is integrated in the clock, dialer, calendar, address book and photo gallery. The HTC Status also features a Facebook chat application that lets you maintain your chat conversations, even when you navigate away to take a call, browse the Web or play a game. And the Facebook chat widget shows who is available to chat and allows you to initiate a conversation with just a tap.

The Facebook share button allows people to:

  • Post instantly on your wall or a friend's wall by pressing the Facebook share button from your home screen.
  • Take a picture or shoot a video and share it instantly with a press of the Facebook share button. You can also post multiple pictures at one time and label and tag them before posting. Or even post photos automatically as you're taking them.
  • Check in to Facebook Places by pressing and holding the Facebook share button from the home screen.
  • Share something cool on the Web with a quick press of the Facebook share button and be the first with the news.
  • Let your friends in on the music you love with the push of a button by pressing the Facebook share button to post the song title and other details.
