HTC Status

PSA: There is no 3D Facebook Phone

Even though an HTC Status 3D would be the talk of the town, certainly, if it were real, and certainly not only for positive reasons, we've got to let you know that the September Best Buy BUYER'S GUIDE has a slightly less than factual bit to it. On the back cover of our beloved Best Buy mobile-intensive mini magazine, (the one you can get when you walk in the door, right over by all the smartphones,) there are three devices, (four, technically,) sitting one next to another: the "ThunderBolt by HTC", the "HTC EVO 3D" and the "HTC Status 3D" with new choice of either AT&T standard silver coloring or Best Buy's exclusive Mauve coloring. I asked, they giggled.

HTC Status Free and Motorola Triumph $250 this week at Target

It's no mistake that we've got more than a couple posts each week regarding Target Superstore, it's just logical - yours truly lives in the heart of the beast, the birthplace of Target itself, Minneapolis / Saint Paul, Minnesota. The ad you see below was photographed inside the Target which sits on the very ground where the first Target in the world once stood (unfortunately it was terrible, apparently, and they had to knock it down to make way for a much better building to house Target once again.) Wild! Now that you've got the facts, let's talk about these devices on sale: three of them are running Android and all three of them have a deal attached.

HTC Status Facebook Phone getting discontinued already?

It appears AT&T is ready to de-friend the HTC Status. Are AT&T and HTC looking to discontinue the HTC Status (aka Facebook phone) already? I know deep down all you readers are screaming NOOO silently because you all just love this little phone. Some new rumors are floating around and have yet to be confirmed that are claiming that AT&T is ready to put this little guy down after only a short while on the market.

AT&T Down in NYC, Says Up Soon

The fine folks at AT&T have stated that the problems many customers have been experiencing this morning (August 4th, 2011), indeed were on part of the network itself and that said problems would be repaired soon. Customers using the AT&T network have had voice service outages Thursday morning, says AT&T, because of a routine set of maintenance activities. Earlier in the day AT&T also sent out a statement that they were having trouble with their 3G voice network specifically in Long Island.

HTC Status Review

Welcome to our official Facebook Phone review - at least that's what they'll have you believe if you're in the AT&T store. What I'd bill this phone as is the greatest little keyboard in the West that just so happens to have a Facebook button below it and a display that's just a little bit too small, but certainly bright and sharp. I come from an environment where I basically skipped over the BlackBerry era and went straight to 4-inch and above displays, so keep that in mind when you take this trip with me down Android way on a device that's by no means perfect, but shoot if it isn't pretty looking and nice to hold.

AT&T HTC Status on sale for $50

The HTC Status has officially gone on sale at AT&T, the carrier's branded version of the HTC ChaCha. The QWERTY-toting Facebook phone has a compact touchscreen, runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a custom version of HTC Sense on top, and has a dedicated Facebook button for sharing photos and other updates to the wildly-popular social network. In addition, there's a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and a flash, a front-facing webcam for video calls, and 3G connectivity. Elsewhere there's WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS, together with a microSD card slot that comes with a 2GB card pre-loaded (but which can support up to 32GB). AT&T is asking $50 for the Status, which makes it one of the cheaper Android devices around; obviously you'll also need a new, two-year agreement with mandatory data plan. More details on the Status in our hands-on and unboxing; we'll have a full review very soon!

Android Community Weekly : July 16, 2011

It’s the middle of July and tech news this week has been rock steady! Lets start off by saying that Google+ is now available for international users; and at this point it seems that all Google+ is missing compared to other social platforms is a wider userbase. In other Google news, their new project “Google Offers (Beta)” launched in NYC Tuesday. Think of this service as a way to save money with many different local businesses on a daily basis. This past Monday evening, HTC released information that the bootloaders of some of their more recent devices will be unlocked in the coming months of August and September. Some of their devices have already been unlocked over at XDA Developers, but I’m sure many have been awaiting an official fix.
