It looks like Motorola has a Facebook feature phone up its sleeve - the Motorola EX225 is set to join ranks with the HTC Status as a socially-focused phone with a dedicated Facebook key. A device almost exactly like the EX225 - sans the Facebook integration - also made an appearance at the FCC, affectionately named EX226.


Tests confirm that both devices are headed for AT&T with 3G capability, though the EX226 only supports AT&T's 850MHz spectrum and lacks compatibility with 802.11n.

Not much else is known about these phones for now, but with their appearance at the FCC, we should be hearing more details soon enough.

    Looks nice... a bit like Galaxy S from the side.

    At first I thought it was a pic of the old Sanyo Juno. Keyboard, bezel, screen...could be anything without a closeup.

    I can't for the life of me figure out why someone needs a Facebook button on the keyboard when you can have a Facebook button on the screen.

      I own an HTC ChaCha and asked the same question before I bought one. It is indeed easier for the user to share everything to facebook with just one button. (That is, if you're a hardcore facebook netizen. In my case, I was looking for an android phone with qwerty keypad-smartphone type and there were only two options available during the time I bought the ChaCha. The other one was Samsung Galaxy Pro, which has lower specs)

    Motorola hasn't met a "niche" phone design it didn't like. Jeesh.
