HTC Facebook Phones and Marvel / Wildfire 2
According to reliable sources HTC is creating two Android Devices with dedicated Facebook buttons. They are not official Facebook phones but do feature deep Facebook integration. Details are scarce except for the photo above showing one to feature a QWERTY keyboard and one to be a full touchscreen device.
According to a BGR report from January, the phones could have always-on GPS for automatic check-ins, location aware coupons, no or very little onboard storage, and pictures uploaded directly to the cloud. Or, presumably, your Facebook profile.
Facebook is an ever-expanding resource and its inevitably getting more involved with the activities we partake in on a daily basis, the major being your mobile device.
The Smartphone above is HTC’s new mid-range device the Wildfire 2. It is to be released with the update to the Sense UI version 3.0. Specs are rumored to be a single core second generation Snapdragon processor at 800-1000 Mhz with a 3.2″ 480×320 HVGA screen. It is said to be shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
HTC is having an even tomorrow at MWC where they are scheduled to make a number of announcements including the devices just mentioned. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
