Motorola has announced their first Facebook phone called the MotoKey Social that sports a slender touchscreen and comes with full QWERTY keypad with a dedicated Facebook key. It was already in news that Motorola was working on the Motorola EX225, a Facebook phone and if you look at the design it is exactly similar. Most probably it is the same model with a new name the “MotoKey“.

The Motorola MotoKey Social will compete with already existing Facebook phones like the Vodafone 555 Blue and the HTC ChaCha. It is still not clear when this model will reach the Indian market and its price tag.
