For this price, you can also get the Nokia E6. While that isn't an Android phone, or doesn’t boast of any Facebook links, it does work well as a phone. Not that the HTC ChaCha doesn’t, for the most part. But the extremely disappointing...

Leaving aside the Facebook integration for a moment, HTC have done a really good job with the ChaCha as a phone. The name ‘ChaCha’ doesn’t exactly roll off your tongue but I guess that’s HTC’s way of differentiating their...

The ChaCha is a solidly built midrange smart phone with a QWERTY keyboard that's every bit as good as any you'll find on an Android phone, and easily stands comparison with Blackberry's henpeckers. The Facebook button is a nice touch that...

All in all, I was extremely impressed with what the HTC ChaCha has to offer. It’s certainly for the Facebook addictslovers like myself, and really no one else. It would make no sense for someone to buy this device without having the urge to use...

When we first heard of HTC's Facebook phones, we had our doubts on how a mobile device will integrate with Facebook. To be frank, we are quite impressed with the innovative idea of a dedicated Facebook button. It is definitely more than just a...

The HTC ChaCha is an interesting concept but it could be taken much further. It should already be able to win over teenager Facebook fans who haven't yet been sucked in by BlackBerry and who enjoy both its distinctive look and its full-size...
