HTC Chacha, a touch and type phone with dedicated Facebook button, is now available at Rs 9,699 from Saholic.com, an online retailer. The phone is otherwise priced at Rs 1,2500.
The phone has a 2.6-inch touch screen, which provides 480 x 320 resolutions, with a full Qwerty keypad. It comes with a 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera.
The device is driven by Android 2.3 operating system, an 800 MHz processor and the acclaimed HTC Sense user interface. The user interface has been tweaked for ChaCha for better Facebook integration like easy upload of pictures captured through the camera; a clock with a ticker stream of Facebook updates; and a calendar widget so you never miss your friends’ birthdays and events. You can also follow your special favourites and all their news with the Friend Stream widget.
Its Facebook Chat widget allows users to group their friends together, and notifies them if anyone comes online. It can also be used for live chats and for juggling between as many private conversations as the user wants.
