While watching the Facebook Home live event, I thought it was just going to be software you could download onto your device. I started thinking that the actual phone we have all been hearing about, was simply just a rumor. I was wrong. Just as theyÂ finishedÂ explainingÂ all the features of Facebook Home, Zuckerberg invites Peter Chou, CEO of HTC, onto the stage. Mr. Chou then shows us the HTC First.
The HTC First is not, by all means, a super smartphone. It is more of a mid-ranged device, and if you have not seen the specs, you can click here. The First will come out in four different colors, and will be made available April 12th exclusively on AT&T. Yes, no other carriers are looking to be carrying this new phone. You can get an HTC First for the cheap price of $100. I can see they are trying to appeal to those heavy Facebook users on a budget. It is pretty good marketing strategy, let’s see if it works out for them.
So will you buy yourself an HTC First? Let us know if you plan on getting one.
