Soon you’ll be able to feed your Facebook addiction without breaking the bank. The HTC Status, aka “the Facebook phone,” will be offered via buy stores and online shops on July 17 for $49.99 with a two-year contract. Pre-orders are now being accepted.

HTC’s Status will sell for $50 with 2-year contract.

The device itself will run on Android 2.3 with HTC Sense overlay, have a 2.6-inch touch screen with 480 x 320 resolution, 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, dual-cameras and an 800MHz processor.

Dubbed the Facebook phone because it has its own Facebook button underneath the keypad, owners have a chance to use a deeply integrated Facebook app.

For example, if you are listening to music, by hitting the Facebook button you can inmediately share what song you are listening, and same goes for browsing and pictures. Simply hit the button to share the site you are on or upload the photo you just view.

When a friend calls, you will see their Facebook photo and latest status on the home screen.

Owners can also use the newly added Skype-based Facebook video chats, though you will need Wi-Fi to do so.

The Status will be available in black, silver, pink, blue and mauve colorways.
