HTC First Facebook Phone Is a Flop, Is Reportedly Discontinued
Not even a full week ago, AT&T slashed the price of the HTC First from $100 down to $1 (subsidized with a two-year service agreement, of course), essentially giving it away to anybody who wanted one and was willing to pony up for 24 months of service. Having slept on it over the weekend, AT&T has now decided it's not even worth giving away and will soon stop offering the device, returning its remaining inventory back to HTC.
Citing an un-named source, BGR says AT&T sold less than 15,000 HTC First phones coast-to-coast through last week when the device dropped to a buck. That's pretty bad, though it bodes worse for Facebook than it does for HTC, which still has its HTC One and a few other popular devices to push on the populace.
