HTC and AT&T are teaming up to create a Facebook-integrated phone. No, not in terms of the OS. But the hardware itself. This device, called the Status (get it?) will have a Facebook button on the shell itself. With a single click, you will be connected to the world of Facebook, where you can commence sharing, uploading, friending liking and more.
My question is, is this really faster? Is a hardware button better than a touchscreen icon? Will it actually improve Facebook integration, or is it a mere marketing gimmick?
I’m not sure AT&T cares much as long as it’s one of them?
