It has a 2.6-inch touchscreen display of the same HVGA resolution and a full four-row QWERTY keyboard for texting. It utilizes the same 600MHz processor and the same-looking 5 megapixel camera with LED flash.

If you read the report it tells you :D

I wonder, do anyone realize or figure the ChaCha is also a touch screen?
I came to this conclusion because it has no trackball or touchpad and some buttons are capacitive. Just saying it looks like its a touch phone

SO many negative comments... I have to admit the phone could look a little better buttttt, with the android 2.4, front facing camera for video chat, and 5MP rear facing camera sounds like it will be a solid performer compared to other mobile devices such as the BBs, and palm pre.. And with the touch creen anyone who ever owned a Treo will love this phone! I had one and also loved typing and touching the screen to select exactly what I wanted!! only question is will facebook/google/twitter contacts be linked to personal contacts such as on the WP7 phones?

Might as well call it "Blah Blah"!
After all, that's what phones meant for social networks are.

although i wouldnt personally buy this phone (im a Blackberry person myself) i can see where theyr coming from! Almost everyone in the whole country have a facebook account so i can see this appealing to alot of people.... more so the younger generation. Also i dont think its fair to write negative comments about the type of people that would buy this phone!!! everyone is different, and are entitled to their own choices!!!

Sooo Predictable, Facebook phones are soooo yesterday - remember the INQ phones, well it looks like HTC are reverting back to the early 2000's !!!! I sooo love HTC and was going to buy a New one to replace my HTC Desire, but with the new phones that they ahve announced 2day they are soo not innivative, just basically rebranded phones with the letter S after them !!! Just like the Galaxy S & iPhone 3gS... I was going to buy the HTC Desire HD, but was waiting to see what HTC brought out 2day, I was at least expecting a European version of the Thunderbolt or something like that, but now I am jumping shop to Samsung to buy their Dual Core Samsung galaxy S II when it comes out - I can't wait... HTC - SMARTEN UP YOUR ACT !!!!

HTC CHACHA can knock off 90 percent of qwerty mobiles in its price range. And offcourse many touchscreen phones too. Its really cool. Goin 2 buy it ASAP.

The demo doesn't look much different than the existing HTC software on my Desire Z. Sharing is already pretty easy with HTC Sense. I guess the extra button just cuts a few steps out.

What HTC really needs to do is to allow me to make comments on Friend Stream that are longer than a hundred some odd characters. I can understand this limit if I use FS to post on both Twitter and FB, but if I only want to post on FB, I should be allowed to enter more characters.
