HTC First is the first (no pun intended) phone to launch with Facebook Home preinstalled out of the box! After years of rumors, the Facebook Phone, or the HTC First, finally launches this week for $99 on AT&T in the US. It’s light and comes with a suped-up version of Facebook Home pre-installed that pipes in non-Facebook notifications. If you’re highly social, want a mid-range handset, crave email notifications, and aren’t a photo buff, the First could be a great fit.
1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU
4.3-inch HD 720p display
5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (stock) with Facebook Home preinstalled
Facebook Home is coming to Google Play today, and will be available for download onto the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, Note II, and HTC One. This phone won’t appeal to those seeking the highest-end specifications, but it offers a nice blend of features, functionality, and price for many Facebook-hungry consumers. Beyond that, you can disable Facebook Home and use it as a stock Android device, making it near-perfect for enthusiasts that find the Nexus 4 too large.
