After first being leaked last week, AT&T and HTC have jointly announced the forthcoming launch of the HTC ChaCha as the HTC Status. The Status features a dedicated Facebook button and customized software that allows users to more easily share activity to Facebook.
The Status features a 2.6-inch touch display; 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0+HS with A2DP; 5.0 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and VGA user-facing camera; gyroscope, compass, proximity and light sensors; 800MHz Qualcomm Scorpion processor, 3.5mm headphone jack, and support for microSDHC cards. The Status runs the latest version of HTC’s Sense user interface as found on the Sensation, but heavily modified to fit the display and features deep Facebook integration. Pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
