HTC Status Pre-Launch Blast in AT&T Videos

The folks at AT&T are getting really ramped up for the release of the HTC Status (also known as the HTC ChaCha in some circles,) with a couple of videos that'll make you more than ready for the drop, the first of which is a video only about how the device is able to come with you anywhere around the world as it's got more connectedness than a spaceship.

HTC EVO View 4G Review

Welcome to a review of a tablet we essentially had a pretty good look at already, but have come to understand in a slightly better way now that it's got a new handsome color set on its outer bits.
