HTC First sold even worse than 2011's HTC ChaCha, which was an Android phone sold as the HTC Status by AT&T, and featured a Facebook button that allowed pictures to be uploaded to the social networking site. AT&T reps are said to be largely ignoring the HTC First when recommending handsets to customers. Instead, AT&T reps are said to be pushing the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 5.
Don't expect the HTC First to disappear so quickly. HTC has paid the carrier to reserve sales space at AT&T stores for the device, and until that contract has expired you can expect to see the phone remain at 99 cents or given away free with a signed pact. And while the HTC First has not sold well at all, the Facebook Home app available for certain Android handsets has continued to receive 1 star ratings from users.
