And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail.

I have been waiting for so long for an android phone with physical blackberry style keys. And this one is the only and the best choice available.
I like it although the screen is small in size.

I wanted a phone with the Qwerty keyboard. My husband wanted a touchscreen more so we found the new HTC status. I love it. Love the Facebook button. Love that the keys aren't too close together. Love the front and back camera that takes great pics with flash. Only thing i dont like is the battery life which can get sucked out quickly depending on what apps you have going and use. also if your Wi-Fi is turned on and always checking for signal. Other than this I think it is an awesome phone!

I'm a long-time Blackberry user who used this phone for 5 full weeks. I returned to Blackberry.

Short Review:

- Android operating system (superior to Blackberry for web browsing and multimedia)
- QWERTY keyboard, finally!
- Touch screen (not many keyboard phones have this)
- Smooth and minimalist form factor, very comfortable to hold.

- Android operating system (inferior to Blackberry for handling various messaging mediums).
- Keys are harder to press than Blackberries. Typing feels a little like a chore.
- Short battery life; I had to charge twice a day. Other reviewers have the same issue, so I'm not the only one.
- Tiny blinking LED notification that's difficult to see at angles. I missed a lot of messages.
- Lack of decent phone stand/pod. Blackberry pods allow you to simply drop the phone in and pull out. One HTC Status pod that's currently on the market (Fosmon USB Cradle Desktop Charger Pod) is not really "drop-in" - you have to plug the USB port on the side of the phone.

Longer Review:

I spent at least a full month using each one of these Android phones
- HTC Desire Z (iPhone style with retractable keyboard)
- HTC Status

I also have the following Blackberry phones
- Curve 83xx (keyboard)
- Bold 9900 (the newest one with both keyboard and touch screen)

Keyboard phones are fantastic for text-based communications because the physical keys and tactile feedback makes for much more efficient and reduced-hassle typing. I spent a lot of time with sans-keyboard phones like iPhone 3GS and HTC Desire Z, and they don't even come close to typing quality. Their bigger screens are not worth it to me (it's better for watching videos, that's about it).

This was the first smartphone that either my wife or I ever owned. We each got the Status (the AT&T version of the HTC ChaCha) along with a 2GB data plan. I love the keyboard and the Facebook button, which is context-sensitive (for example, press it when you're at the home screen to post a status update, press it when looking at a photograph to upload a picture), and the screen, while small, is bright and clear.

I knew going into things that the Status had limited internal storage (150MB). But I also knew that it came with a 2GB microSD card, so I figured the internal storage limitation wouldn't be a problem. I was wrong.

The vast majority of that 150MB storage space is occupied by dozens and dozens of pre-loaded AT&T and HTC apps, not a single one of which can be removed or offloaded to your SD card without considerable effort (more on that at the end). Only three weeks after acquiring the phone, I was getting daily warning messages to free up storage space to keep the phone working properly. I had only downloaded 5 apps and I had moved all of them to the SD card (most Marketplace apps can be moved), but still the phone constantly told me to free up space. In fact, the problem got so dire that after just a month of using the phone it was no longer able to update my Facebook, Google, or Calendar, or to download/install updates to any existing apps. The fact that there were literally dozens of useless pre-installed apps that I couldn't uninstall or move was just infuriating.

Another significant complaint I have is the pitiful battery life.

By Wendy on October 8, 2011
I say it's a good phone because it is... I like the physical keyboard. The call quality is stellar as well. The camera takes beautiful pictures (and the built in flash is a definite plus). I have used the Facebook button probably far more than I should... However at least once a day a lovely little display pops up screaming at me that I'm running out of space on my phone... no matter what I move or how often I clear cache it will still pop up... so I'm forced to deal with minimal apps because of this. Which basically turned a really nifty smart phone into just a phone with access to facebook.

I love the premise of this phone, but the on-board memory is going to have to come up in order for it to be a better phone. The warning that my storage is low almost every single day is ridiculous. I have the 2gb micro SD card in it, but unfortunately it will only allow certain things to be stored on it. And what is even more ridiculous is that what is taking up ALL of my on-board storage is stupid AT&T apps that I do not now, nor will I ever use.

Even with the huge pitfalls I still enjoy the phone. It is a good starter phone or even a teenager-esque phone, but for what I'm wanting to do this was a severe step down for me.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask me anything!

Happy Shopping :) <3
