HTC who have a reputation for producing “hot” selling phones may have to go back to dance school following news that their Cha Cha and Salsa Facebook phones which were launched recently on the Vodafone network phones are struggling to find partners.

According to a Vodafone source the two HTC Facebook phones that were launched recently at an event in Sydney, are struggling to sell compared to other HTC phones. Currently one of the most popular phones is the HTC Sensation.

 According to people that Smarthouse has spoken to the issue appears to be the use of a keypad and a small screen alongside a Facebook button that is turning consumers off the HTC Facebook phone.

One Vodafone store manager said “Most people want the large screen that the Samsung Galaxy or the HTC Sensation offers. Keypad similar to what is on the Cha Cha is yesterday’s technology which is why we are seeing a move away from Blackberry keypad phones. Most people are happy with a Facebook Icon on the opening page of their screen Vs a button”.

In the USA AT & T is rumoured to be ready to drop the HTC Facebook phone due to poor sales.

According to Tech Crunch the network may have already “dumped” the phone.

At the Sydney launch HTC Australia executives said that they were “uncertain” as to where the market was for the Cha Cha and Salsa models as “they are so unique”.
 
The device which lets users share music, photos, location, and status updates via the dedicated Facebook button also lets owners take a picture or shoot a video and share it instantly with a press of the Facebook button.

The Facebook button on the two phones glow when playing music.
