My girlfriend and I just removed our facebook accounts last month.. Soooo sick of that thing and haven't looked back since.
A facebook button is the worst idea ever.. it's like an april fools joke... what happens when the next facebook comes out and everyone switches to that

Hmm, i can already see dev's having a field day with that button. It wont be exclusively for facebook for very long i can tell you that
This might attract some Blackberry users, who knows.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

HTC didn't sell out. At the end of the day they are a company that's in the business of making money. Having a Facebook button will certainly help with that in a certain demographic. If it starts showing up on high-end devices I might be singing a different tune.
Heck if having that button means they update the app for everyone I'm all for it.Forum Rules & Guidelines -- CLICK HERE

I bet they've tripled the sales of this device just by adding the button. I know plenty of people who wouldn't think twice about this phone without it, but would definitely consider getting it with that button. In the end, that's more people on Android (particularly young people), which just helps the platform. Unless this thing just sucks and runs them off.

I would love that form factor. I love Android, but I don't watch movies or play games on my phone. Every manufacturer is focusing on the big-screen, battery sucking devices. I want a small device with a qwerty keyboard and a long-lasting battery that also runs Android.
I don't love the facebook button. I hate that it's on AT&T.

I avoid facebook like the plague mostly because of privacy concerns, so this phone obviously isn't for me. I agree that it does sort of force facebook on those of us who don't use it. Design wise it isn't bad though, very Blackberryish in my opinion. And I know that there are going to be a lot of facebook users who appreciate the facebook button, but I can't help but wonder what happens when facebook's popularity is inevitably eclipsed by some other social networking site. I suppose it will be up to the devs to deal with that situation.
