    Last Updated: Apr 3rd,2013

    The HTC First is the pioneer of Facebook Home. The device is built around the social network's launcher and is optimized for the ultimate Facebook experience. The  smaller (in today's standards) device features a 4.3-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and Android 4.1 (with Facebook Home). It is no superphone, but it will only cost $100 with a 2-year contract. What do you say, are you ready for the Facebook phone?
