Report: HTC making new Facebook phone According to a Digitimes report, HTC is building a new Facebook phone.
The device will be Android-based, and unlike past devices, there will be more than just a "Facebook button."

HTC's Salsa and ChaCha each offered a dedicated Facebook button that allowed for quick access to the site including chat, uploading photos and more.

The new device, which will launch in the Q3 will be "a platform exclusive to Facebook," however, with much deeper integration.

Digitimes speculates HTC is picking a side with Facebook, as Google is expected to begin creating its own Nexus devices into the future, leaving other Android makers in the dark.

Okay.. so instead of a button on my homescreen it will be a button on my homescreen on ALL TABS. Worst idea ever.. didn't they learn from phones they marketed as the "youtube phone."
