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 Hate Facebook

I hate Facebook. It disgusts me that here is an entire phone asked around it. I will be very apply when this fad ends and I read of Zuckerberg's inevitable fatal overdose.

Dumb, irrelevant, pointless, stupid, redundant, etc. I can go and on and on. Haven't they learned from the Cha Cha? Nobody wants a Facebook phone. Nobody.
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.

But, as Nancy Reaga...
I've gotten so many complaints over the Status/ChaCha. I feel bad for anyone who bought one.

We'll see how this one goes...

No go

Who needs more facebook? It is just for kids. I do not even post anymore because of how my feed is. Way to much junk I do not want to see and apps galore.
