HTC's New Status Has Deep Facebook Powers

It strikes me that we don't need that much more Facebook integration in our lives, seeing as we already have kids named after it. That won't stop HTC, who've just come out with the Status. A true Facebook phone. Hooray?

As you'll recall, the Status has its own dedicated Facebook button, letting you share music, pics taken with the 5MP camera, and whatever's on your mind at the moment with just a push. It also sports a physical QWERTY keyboard below its 2.6in touchscreen and that oddly curved body. Great for writing statuses, but will probably stick to your beer-soaked face. Kids, right? And the Sense UI skinning Gingerbread comes with a custom widget to stalk your Facebook friends.


Now we just need a Google+ phone. [HTC, HTC Facebook page]
