Updated: updating as details become available, added screen and camera details.
HTC today announced the HTC First, a new phone that takes advantage of the new Facebook Home user interface. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but has Facebook Home preloaded as the user interface. Facebook Home is Faecbook's new overlay that puts people, not apps, first. The device features a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture and flash. Instagram will also be preloaded on the HTC First. The HTC First will ship in four colors and will be available from AT&T with support for its LTE 4G network. It will be available April 12 for $99.99 with a new contract. Preorders begin today.
I totally agree, moronic. But if Ma Bell drops this abortion to $49, they will sell a lot of them to the teeners. And I can see this "thing" taking away sales from lower end iphones which would have been their first choice.
