HTC ChaCha rumored to hit AT&T as the 'Status'

According to unnamed sources, the HTC ChaCha may land on AT&T as the "Status." You know, like your Facebook status, seeing as how this is a "Facebook phone." Here's how we see that playing out:

Operator: "Thank you for calling AT&T. How may I help you?"Customer: "Hi. I wanted to check on the status of my HTC Status order." Operator: "Sure. I'll be happy to help you. Which HTC phone are you asking about?"Customer: "The Status. The HTC Status."Operator: "Sir, I'll need to know which HTC phone you want to know the status on. There are a lot of them."Customer: "The phone's called the 'Status.' "Operator: "Oh, you want to know the phone's call status? That's easy. Open the dialer and ..."

Yep. That's definitely better than ChaCha.

  • That is one ugly phone.
  • Anyone remember the iTunes branded phone released about a year ahead of the iPhone that was just as fugly? This still gives wind to the idea of FB releasing their own proprietary device.
  • "Wait a minute...who's on first, what's on second, and I don't know is on third???"
  • You beat me to it.
  • yep...sounds like an AT&T rep to me...
  • Looks like a Crapberry. Or I could be kind and say it looks like a Treo.
  • All the negativity that's in this town sucks!
  • People beeyotch when all the phones are the same and then when one comes out that looks very different everyone still beeyotchs. You know, that makes you guys a bunch of beeyotchs. And yes I spelled it correctly.
  • That conversation reminds me of one I had with an AT&T rep that couldn't understand that my last name and street name were the same.
  • Not to offend anyone but this phone looks like it has down syndrome.
  • that is to funny what is the statues of my HTC statues. hello
  • When does this come out, I need to get one of these to replace my Atrix asap
  • I see what you did there ;) (the rest of you need to brush up on your sarcasm)
  • If Sense weren't so insanely bloated and in my face everywhere when I touch the phone, I might give this a try, but I do like different-looking phones. Black slab released after black slab released after, yes, yet another black slab...I might as well be back with RIM releasing the exact same device over & over & over again.
  • What's the status on the stats of the status? Statistically speaking, it should be the same as cha cha. I think the status sales stats will be as embarrassing as the cha cha's name is, since enthusiasm for facebook has been waning for some time now.
  • This is one device where I'd welcome the extra customizations if they manage to solve Android's lack of usability in landscape mode.
  • I wonder if there is Twitter or Google+ on this... (lol)
