And so the pre-official announcement, leaky life of the HTC Status on AT&T continues. First we were treated to a press image of the HTC ChaCha bearing an AT&T tattoo above its display and then it was rumored that the device would be making its way to Ma Bell's shelves as the "HTC Status." Today a photo of the Status in the wild has emerged, proudly displaying its blue Facebook button for all to see. The screen isn't on in the image, which is kind of a bummer, but at least we've got a nice physical QWERTY keyboard to examine, right?
There's still no word on exactly when AT&T plans to launch the Status or how much it'll be charging for the messaging/social network-centric smartphone when it does, but you can bet we'll update our status to let you know more when we do. Stay tuned.
