First Look: HTC Status (AT&T)

1:28 /

Can't get enough of Facebook? Then the HTC Status for AT&T just might be the phone for you. Watch as CNET takes a quick tour of the Facebook-optimized smartphone.

Hey, everyone, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com and we are here in New York at a special event with AT&T showing off the HTC Status. This is the Facebook-optimized phone. What it has here is a dedicated Facebook button so you can press it to post a status update, share news stories, as well as any music you're listening to. You can also share photos by pressing this button here. Short press will take you to the screen where you can post status updates. If you do a long press, it will allow you to check into Locations so you can share with everyone else on your Facebook wall. Otherwise, it's running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 2.6-inch screen. It's HVGA quality. It's a little small but, you know, for the intended audience, I think it's okay. On back, you've got a 5-megapixel camera and on front there's also a VGA camera so you can do video calls. Another Facebook feature, it has a chat client so you can instant message with your friends. Also got a full QWERTY keyboard. Buttons are a good size and they're raised above the surface so they're easy to press. It will be available starting July 17th for a very affordable $49.99 with a 2-year contract so I think it's gonna do really well with the younger crowd who loves the social network especially Facebook so looking forward to trying it out and I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your First Look at the HTC Status for AT&T.
