Facebook-centric HTC Status available for pre-order

John Moe Jul 12, 2011

Let’s say that you have a burning desire to post everything you do on Facebook. What songs you listen to, what pictures you’re looking at, you’re convinced that your loose assemblage of Friends will be completely fascinated by a picture of your dog or the fact that you’re listening to Coldplay right now. HAVE WE GOT A PHONE FOR YOU. The HTC Status is available for pre-order and ships on July 17. It’s like a regular smartphone but it also has a big blue F button at the bottom. Hit it and your latest activity gets posted on Facebook. BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT TO HAVE HAPPEN. It’s cheap at $50, runs on Android and AT&T.
