We spotted the HTC ChaCha for pre-order on Amazon a few weeks ago. The book giant reckons it’ll be available on June 26, priced £249.99 SIM free.
You can now pre-order the HTC ChaCha from Carphone Warehouse too. CPW suggests the Facebook phone is “Expected: June 2011” but notes that the “Expected date is subject to change without notice”.
There are no less than 40 contract options at Carphone Warehouse, all on Orange, with the handset price ranging from free to £179.99. There don’t appear to be any PAYG or SIM free offers just yet.
Meanwhile, Clove says its first stock is expected on June 6, with the SIM free HTC ChaCha costing £252.
We’ve possibly been a little harsh on the HTC ChaCha, describing it as the “ugliest handset at Mobile World Congress” and questioning the need for a dedicated Facebook button. Ah well.
The HTC ChaCha has a QWERTY keyboard, 2.6in display, 600MHz processor and 5MP camera, and will ship with Gingerbread (Android 2.3).
