If they had offered it as a stock Android device, it probably would have sold more.

Then they should just buy a Nexus device.

But what Nexus device is on AT&T? Also, $99 on contract (or free now) sounds a lot better to the average consumer than $300 off contract for a Nexus 4, if they even know about the Nexus 4. Then they would have to give up LTE if they live in one of AT&T's LTE markets.

Shocker of shockers... Nobody asked for a Facebook phone besides Zuck.

It's the principle, plus the fact that he purposely hit the spacebar.

Good!!! Just another waist of time and money.
My thoughts are: If someone has Android now, and that facebook home app is available to the phone they currently have or currently going to get, Well then getting this phone wouldnt make a good choice, when they can have the GSIV or HTCONE instead.
Obviously thats what i would do.
I Love Facebook and all it has to offer, but phonewise.. they need to come up with there own software, and not branch it off android

I honestly think this phone would've only sold even relatively well during the Droid Does campaign in 2009.

now htc will "probably" have an idea why people ain't buying. bad choices (ahem, beats audio, facebook), little to no marketing and noncompetitive pricing.
