HTC ChaCha priced for UK

Since the two Facebook phones from HTC were announced, we have heard availability details for the Salsa (not least because it is an O2 exclusive), less so for the HTC ChaCha. Enter Carphone Warehouse to put us out of our misery.

The ChaCha is now available for pre-order, with the Carphone Warehouse offering contract deals on the Orange network. It will be on 'back order' though, with no firm shelf date as yet. Although June has been talked about in the past.

The prices, should you want a 'free' handset, start at £20 per month over a 24-month period. That particular deal varies, depending on your choice of minutes, texts or data. You can bump the levels of all of those for £25 per month. If you prefer an 18-month deal, they start at £30. If you want to pay upfront for the phone, you can do that too – £179.99 gets you a £10 per month contract for example.

For that, you'll get an Android 2.3 device that's heavily tied in with Facebook, with one-touch access to the main functions, as well as as easy sharing and photo uploads. The HTC ChaCha is the 'Facebook phone' with the QWERTY keyboard, as well as offering a five-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash, a VGA front-facing camera for calls, a 2.6-inch, 480x320 resolution landscape touch-screen, 600MHz processor, 512MB of memory and plenty of storage via microSD memory card.

If all that appeals, get your name down at Carphone Warehouse now.
