HTC First Facebook Phone Price Drops to $0.99 at AT&T

The only Android smartphone to have the new Facebook Home loaded on top right from start is now available for just $0.99. HTC First is available for purchase through wireless carrier AT&T in the United States at only $0.99 with the signing of a two-year contract agreement.

The phone was announced a month ago and was originally sold for $99 with a two-year contract. Although we’re not aware why the phone’s price has dropped from a huge margin, but what we assume is that Facebook is trying to get Home into the hands of more users.

HTC First Price Drop

Facebook’s entry into the hardware market hasn’t been a pleasing one. At the time of writing this post 15,855 users had rated Facebook Home, however, the app has a low rating on just 2.2 stars out of 5, with only 2,763 users rating it a 5 while a majority number of users rating it 1 star.

According to Business Insider, “the price drop also backs up reports from analysts that the phone hasn’t been selling very well. One analyst reported that he called an AT&T store whose employees claimed they hadn’t sold any HTC First phones”.
