The Motorola EX225 has been revealed by the Bluetooth SIG and images of the phone show a dedicated Facebook button. The EX225 looks nearly identical to the HTC Status and, like that phone, is expected to offer a fully Facebook-integrated user interface, a 2.4-inch touchscreen display and a full QWERTY keyboard. In August, a report suggested that AT&T was going to discontinue the Status after the phone failed to attract a substantial customer base but AT&T immediately dispel the rumor, stating “The HTC Status is a great product and our plans for it to be part of our portfolio haven’t changed.” Now, it looks like other companies will try to follow HTC’s lead. A second image of the EX225 suggests Motorola also has plans for a version of the phone without a Facebook button, and that version could launch as a dual-SIM device. The second image follows below.
