HTC launches Facebook phones exclusive to Vodafone

The HTC ChaCha and Salsa are optimised for the social networking site


HTC| has released the ChaCha and Salsa, two Facebook-optimised smartphones, exclusively to Vodafone.

Both handsets run on Google Android 2.3 OS, dubbed Gingerbread, and the HTC Sense interface customised to integrate with Facebook.

ChaCha carries a QWERTY keyboard and a small touchscreen while the Salsa uses a 3.4-inch touchscreen.

When making or receiving calls from friends, the phones will automatically load the friend’s latest status updates and photos as well as reminders for when the person’s birthday is approaching.

The ChaCha and Salsa both feature a designated Facebook button which functions differently depending on the situation. It will begin to flash when there is a chance to share content through Facebook such as when a picture is taken off the handsets.

Both smartphones have a 5-megapixel camera and will be available on July 6 through Vodafone.

The HTC ChaCha is free on a $29 Cap plan for 24-months while the HTC Salsa is free on a $45 Infinite plan over 24-months.
