HTC Status

Although we're still waiting for it to make its debut on a U.S. carrier -- Telus in Canada today has taken the wraps off of their version of the HTC ChaCha or as it shall be known in Canada, the HTC Status. Telus hasn't given a launch date or pricing as of yet but when it does arrive, it will be available in black as well as purple. Plus, you know -- you get Android 2.3 and that cute little dedicated Facebook button that helped give the device its name.

I've never held one of these things, but that keyboard just looks awful, and I love portrait QWERTYs.

HTC has a long history of very good portrait QWERTYs. The HTC Snap, seen here (, is a very good example.

Looks better in Black.

My 2 year old daughter has a play phone that looks just like this... sad really.

This thing better be free on contract.

Cyrilmak says:

This has got to be the ugliest phone I've ever laid eyes on. Even the 10 year old BlackBerry's look better.

Wait...which one's are the 10 year old blackberries? I can't tell the difference anymore. :)

The ones that came out last year.

Its nicer in black.. The phone looks tall

oh ok then says:

I would love it if HTC or some other manufacturer would make a serious take on this form factor.

The new Blackberry Curve that's touchscreen + portrait qwerty is such a sexy piece of hardware.
