HTC does the ChaCha with Three and Vodafone

Improved and contracted

Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

The HTC ChaCha has danced its way onto the UK telco scene, with Vodafone and Three now offering the handset on monthly plans.

While it still has the fixed Qwerty keyboard and 2.6in display, the Facebook-branded ChaCha defied last month's spec-ulation and arrives rejuvenated with an 800MHz CPU running Android 2.3.

HTC ChaCha

The HTC ChaCha is available from free through two-year plans at Vodafone and Three, starting at £26 and £20 respectively.

At Vodafone, that'll get you 300 minutes and unlimited texts, with 250MB of data and 1GB BT Openzone Wi-Fi. Check out Vodafone's ChaCha page for further details.

Three on the other hand, for £3 more a month, offers 2000 minutes, 5000 texts and all-you-can-eat data. More info on that can be found at Three.

An unlocked HTC ChaCha can be picked up from Amazon for £250. ®
