The HTC Facebook shortcut

The HTC Facebook shortcut

HTC has created their own one-button trend, the “Facebook share button”. HTC Salsa is one of the latest smartphones to hit the United Arab Emirates market. While all other phone functionality is done through the haptic touchscreen, only Facebook sits proudly and comfortably as a button.

Why it matters

HTC has raised the bar for social mobile phones. The need for easy and quick access to social media platforms is rising in the UAE and HTC is responding to that. How long will it take for UAE marketers to finally take the jump and start developing social media strategies? Is this new trend enough to provide them with an understanding of the role social media plays in this part of the world?
