HTC First Now Only $0.99 For New and Upgrading Customers, Are You Intrigued?

htc first 99

We know that many of the readers here are not huge fans of Facebook, but today, AT&T lowered the price of the HTC First, otherwise known as the Facebook phone. When it launched it was $99.99, but it is now down to only $0.99 if you are upgrading or a new customer. The phone features Facebook Home, a whole new take on what a smartphone can do, but underneath that it runs perfectly stock Android 4.1.2. For $0.99 can you really get a better stock Android device? 

The First comes with AT&T’s LTE network built in and features a Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor, not the biggest chip, but when running stock Android you don’t need that much power. A 720p display and 1GB of RAM make this a serious contender for anyone looking for a good Android device on AT&T.

That being said, does this interest you for only a dollar?

    I’d get one, but it doesn’t support T-Mobile 3G or overseas LTE.

    Interested to know if it works on T-Mobile LTE tho.

    @Loise, you create $27h…good for you! I compose to $85h engaging from home. My story is that I quit engaging at shoprite to figure on-line and with to a small degree effort I simply herald around $45h to $85h…heres an honest example of what i am doing, http://www.hdcash1.com

    Nice misuse of a comman, Eric.

    I don’t get all the hate either, played with it in the store and looks pretty sweet.(I disabled fb home on all the phones before I left hehe) Has a better button setup than the One and sock android. I’d get it if I wasn’t trying to get out of my att contract now.

    I’m sure my sister is going to be happy with this news. She wants this phone. It’s a nice option for someone’s first smartphone. I don’t get all the hate.

    I hope HTC didn’t put millions of dollars behind the development of this phone. Facebook screwed them immediately by making FB Home available for the more popular devices from other manufacturers. Good job HTC, another smart business decision.

    After seeing the post about using the First without Facebook Home, I’d be intrigued in a cheap AT&T HTC phone without Sense.

    You serious Clark?

  • Justin Kos

    Galaxy nexus is better

  • Tim242

    Next, the over-hyped One will be down to ninety nine cents.

    This is because Tweens don’t have 100 dollars to spend.. I think AT&T/HTC/Facebook finally realize this, lol.

  • Steve S

    Same price as R. Kelly’s Sheets…..PISS!

    That’s probably priced correctly for this POS. I am NOT getting this!

    • michael arazan

  • EC8CH
