HTC to introduce an Android phone with a dedicated Facebook button

HTC to introduce an Android-powered phone with a dedicated Facebook button?

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Feb 11, 2011 2:00 am

Facebook is really getting their name plastered all over the news today, I guess that's what you get with 500 million users. Well, HTC are supposedly looking at having an Android-powered device with a dedicated Facebook button.

This would allow an Android user to click the Facebook button, instead of the home button and then the Facebook icon (or widget). HTC is expected to introduce this new phone this month at the Mobile World Congress, so hold your breath until then. It sounds like a good idea, but really, just to save a few seconds? For me, I can click home, then Facebook and be in the app in less than a second - but I guess if you want to be cool and have a Facebook button on your phone...
