HTC launch Facebook phones

24 February 2011


Does anyone actually still use Facebook? HTC seem to think so as they've released two new Facebook phones called the ChaCha and Salsa. Awful names, granted, but they look like smart little... uh... smartphones.

These devices now have a UK release date, although not from HTC themselves, but rather, online retailer Expansys.

The Android phones are apparently available as of 17th June, yet there's no price given as yet. Which is rubbish because no-one wants a phone that might end up being a rip-off. Vodafone, T-Mobile and Orange have all confirmed that they'll be flogging the ChaCha already, but no word on the Salsa as yet.

The ChaCha looks like the better of the two phones, running Android 2.4 Gingerbread and neat little Qwerty keyboard and 2.6-inch screen. There's also that dedicated Facebook button which appears to be placed in such a way that you'll constantly be hitting it by accident with your ungainly, tubby paws.

We look forward to future releases called 'Rhumba' and 'Drunkenly Swaying Side To Side While Winking At A Lady With Sick Down Your Front' too.

    Gingerbread 2.4. Is that a new update that I've not heard of or did you mean 2.3?

    Fat Gipsy: I got around that by simply putting family in a group called "Can't see shit" and making my profile an absolute bastard consisting mostly of the words "LOL FACEBOOK SUX" over and over again. Anyone who can see all that bollocks and still want to friend me is probably my soulmate.

    I posted a brilliant Tweet today about the nice sandwich I had for lunch. I'm going to do it tomorrow too.

    Hmmm, concentrate on making a few really good phones into excellent phones, or release a plethora of mediocre models that no one wants or needs? C'mon HTC , have SE and Nokia taught you nothing?
