Over the past six months, we built the Facebook for Feature Phones app with Snaptu to bring improved Facebook functionality to over 2,500 different devices. We also launched 0.facebook.com as a faster and free way for people to access Facebook around the world, including locations where connectivity is especially costly and slow. Today, we’re excited to share some of our recent collaborations with two mobile device manufacturers.
Two upcoming Android devices from INQ, the Cloud Touch and Cloud Q, feature new Facebook integrations with single sign-on and easy one-touch access to popular Facebook features. The home screen features your News Feed (including your friends’ updates, pictures, videos and links) and quick links to Chat, Messages, Places, notifications and more. You can also check in to your favorite shops and businesses with Facebook Places, right from the home screen.
HTC’s ChaCha and Salsa phones feature a dedicated Facebook button that gives you one-touch access to your favorite Facebook functions, allowing you to update your status, upload a photo, share a news article and check in to places. Facebook Chat, Messages and your friends are also integrated, so when you make a phone call, the screen displays your friends’ status updates and photos, and even their birthdays.
