The HTC ChaCha, now on AT&T as the HTC Status, bears a striking resembles to a device that we first saw back in 2007 when Google announced the Android operating system. Android was first shown off as two prototypes: a candybar-style device with a touchscreen, and a front-facing QWERTY form factor with no touchscreen. While the ChaCha certainly has touchscreen, the overall design of it reminds us of that early Android prototype, which can also be seen in the below video from the Android YouTube channel.
