The new AT&T HTC Status will be a good phone for the Facebook and twitter obsessed ! it have a big physical keyboard, a lot of Blackberry users will find this phone a nice reason to try Android. There is definitely a market for this device. I would Parents won’t mind paying 50 for it and teens will love it.
