HTC's Facebook-toting Icon, Snap 2 seen in last-minute leak

HTC Icon and Snap 2 Facebook phones spied early

HTC's rumored quick Facebook phones gained some credibility with a last-minute leak on Monday night. The full-touch Icon and QWERTY candybar Snap 2 both appear to have a Facebook key built into the phone chin that would jump to the social network. Photos snapped with either could upload directly to Facebook without the in-between process of today, PocketNow heard.

Either should use HTC's Sense interface, but whether they would upgrade to Android 2.3 or stay locked to 2.2 on shipping isn't known; notably, Sense has been updated and shows Facebook updates below the clock rather than the weather. Both would have only a small amount of baseline storage to emphasize the cloud and might have constantly active GPS for Facebook Places, although it wasn't said how they would accomplish this without a hit to battery life.

The phones should be unveiled early tomorrow morning at a Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona and should be available this year, although when will vary depending on the carrier and the country.
