    HTC announced the two Facebook phones, the ChaCha and the Salsa with the occasion of this year's Mobile World Congress and it looks like the hardware and software are now final as Amazon UK has them both on pre-order and reportedly shipping on June 26. We already knew the ChaCha will land on T-Mobile UK this June but according to Amazon UK's pre-order page, they will ship on the 26th of next month. You'll have to pay £249.99 for the ChaCha (around $409.10) and £319.99 (around $523.66) for the Salsa which is pricey but that's the price you will pay for an unlocked smartphone. Once ...

    HTC's ChaCha, one of its upcoming "Facebook phones", is still some time off from its US launch on AT&T, but the rest of the world was told they could look forward to it sometime during Q2. Smartphone users in the UK can narrow that down a smidge, as T-Mobile UK has updated its site with info on the ChaCha, scheduled for a June release. With a BlackBerry-like form factor, the ChaCha offers a QWERTY keyboard option lacking from its cousin, the touchscreen-only Salsa. That form factor means it will have a petite 2.6-inch HVGA 480x320 screen, with HTC Sense adapted to accommodate the display's ...

    One of HTC's Facebook phones, the ChaCha, launched with the occasion of this year's Mobile World Congress, is likely to be available in Spain with a slight name change. While Engadget says the word "chacha" "is used as a term of disparagement" in Spanish, our dictionary brought up the word "nanny" as translation. Nevertheless, a Cuban music style like the "Cha Cha Cha" would grant the device more justice, also having in mind that the Taiwanese company has been recently sued over the "ChaCha" branding. Not quite sure why HTC didn't name the device ChaChaCha in the first place, taken into ...

    HTC is being sued in Indiana Southern District Court by ChaCha Search over the name of its new QWERTY-equipped Android handset, known as a Facebook phone because it sports a button with the social network's logo. ChaCha is one of the early human-powered, "quesion-and-answer" search engines which have since grown in popularity. Interestingly, HTC doesn't seem to make any claim to the word ChaCha here in North America: it has only applied for trademark protection in Europe (on "HTC ChaCha"), and the phone was introduced in Spain, not the US; thus far, HTC has not advertised it as going by ...

    HTC have launched a total number of five devices with the occasion of this year's Mobile World Congress and, while they didn't unveil anything huge, the Taiwanese manufacturer was the only one to present such a huge portfolio of new devices.

The device sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, 1.1GB of ROM, 3.7-inch WVGA screen, five-megapixel camera and a 1450mAh battery. The ...

    We showed them to you first, and today they became real. What we have here are two low-midrange Android phones that feature a suite of additions to the Sense UI to bring Facebook functionality forward. That means that, for example, the HTC weather clock has been updated to show friends' status updates. Also, an array of widgets have been added beyond the typical Friend Stream that let you view the status of individual people like through the Friend Channel widget. There's also a native Facebook chat client that looks pretty well-done. Oh, and they both have a dedicated Facebook button to ...

    Dear HTC, Not a lot has happened since our last letter, and that's kind of why we decided to write again: you promised us something big at Mobile World Congress, and you must have been referring to that tablet, because the crop of phones that you brought along was pretty ho hum. We were totally excited for some dual-core, qHD, gigabyte-of-RAM, NFC-equipped action, and instead, the highlights of your lineup were a pair of low-end handsets with a rather gimmicky social networking button on them. As for the mainstream models, well, those weren't really much better -- incremental upgrades to ...
