HTC ChaCha and Salsa

The oft-rumored Facebook is now a reality, and there are actually two of them: the HTC ChaCha and the HTC Salsa. The ChaCha features a full QWERTY keyboard, while the Salsa is an all touch-screen device.

Facebook representatives, including a recorded video by Mark Zuckerberg, said they were excited about the partnership and added it was the beginning of many interesting things.

Dedicated Facebook button

Both the HTC ChaCha (shown here) and Salsa will feature a dedicated Facebook button, which takes the user directly to Facebook, so you can update your status, share stories, upload photos, and more. The button is also context-aware, so if you're taking a picture, for example, the button will light up to remind you that you can upload the photo directly to Facebook.

HTC enters tablet foray

With so many of its competitors coming out with tablets, it's really no surprise that HTC introduced its first at MWC.

However, the company made it very clear that it didn't enter the tablet scene just to be a "me too" mentality; rather it took its time to study and develop the best user experience on a tablet.
