AT&T also dropped the off-contract price from $450 to $350

Facebook may be the king of the social networking world, but it has a long way to go in the way of mobile devices -- and it shows in the sales of the HTC First. 

HTC's "First" smartphone was released as a Facebook-heavy, social smartphone last month. While it runs the Android operating system, a main feature was the integrated Facebook Home software -- which puts Facebook notifications and updates at the forefront.


While the phone has some decent specs, it's not doing too hot in the sales department. Customers don't seem to be interested in the product, and while no official sales figures have been released, the proof is in the price -- AT&T recently cut the price of the HTC First from $99 with a two-year contract to 99 cents, and even dropped the off-contract price from $450 to $350. 

Reviews of the HTC First say that Facebook Home is nowhere near finished, and that other specs (like the rear camera) are not too impressive. 

The HTC First features a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720p SLCD3 display, aSnapdragon 400 1.5 GHz dual-core processor from Qualcomm, Inc., LTE compatibility, 1 GB memory, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.6 megapixel front camera. It is available in black, white, red and blue and is exclusive to AT&T.
