The new HTC Status Facebook phone is now pre-order ready over on AT&T, this handset comes with a dedicated Facebook share button and we would like to know what’s the point in this handset?

For only $49.99 and of course a two-year contract and minimum $15 data plan the mobile phone can be yours, you can pre-order now and will be in AT&T Stores on July 17. According to the press release Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile standalone stores will feature an exclusive mauve edition. (more about this below)

Before we let you know more about the HTC Status, we would like to know if there is any point with buying it. What we mean in that is Google has just released its new Google + (Plus) service and it is great, obviously they are trying to be better than Facebook, the HTC Status runs on the Android system. Personally they should have stopped the release and developed the HTC Status with a dedicated Google+ button instead of the dedicated Facebook button. Do you agree with us, yes or no?

The Facebook share button allows users to instantly post what they want on their profile walls direct from the HTC Status with ease, all you need to do is press the little FB button on the phone. Take pictures or video and post them straight away, you can even upload multiple pictures, Check in to Facebook Places by pressing and holding the Facebook share button from the home screen, Let your friends in on the music you love with the push of a button by pressing the Facebook share button to post the song title and other details. You can also share something cool on the Web with a quick press of the Facebook share button and be the first with the news.

The HTC Status runs on the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread OS and features HTC Sense, other features include: calendar, address book, Facebook chat widget, maintain your chat conversations, even when you navigate away to take a call, 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash plus a front-facing camera, shortcuts and wallpapers, customizable lock screen, physical keyboard, 2.6-inch touch screen with 480 x 320 resolution, capacitive navigation buttons, and much more.
