Although you've been able to use Facebook on many phones and through many apps, HTC has just confirmed that their new phones ChaCha and Salsa will have a dedicated Facebook button.

With so many of use using Facebook it interact with our family and friends, it comes as no surprise that this would be the next step. Just where is Zuckerberg's dominance going to end. I have a sickening feeling that we might see a "Mark for 2020" campaign in the works. I only jest.

Peter Chou, CEO of HTC, said that “we wanted to create the ultimate socially connected phones with mass market appeal”, and Facebook’s Head of Mobile Business, Henri Moissinac said “We have worked closely with HTC for several years on bringing Facebook to their devices and HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa are the next stage.”

Some of the more interesting things about these phones is that they'll be "context aware". Meaning that depending on what you are doing it will act differently with Facebook. As an example, if one of your friends calls you it will show their status as well as their number and photo.
