Zuckerberg seeking Samsung produced Facebook phone?
disappointing release of the Facebook Home launcher which debuted to poor reviews on the Google Play Store. Speculation was that Facebook developers were so tuned into their Apple iPhones and iOS that they didn't think about things likewidgets when they produced the launcher. Even more disappointing, the lone handset model that came pre-installed with Facebook Home, the HTC First, was reduced in price to 99 cents on contract after selling only an estimated 10,000 units. AT&T eventually dropped the model, which never made it to the U.K. as planned.
This wasn't the first time that a Facebook phone failed to catch on. In 2011, the HTC Salsa and HTC ChaCha (HTC Status at AT&T) were launched. Both contained a dedicated Facebook button that could send a tune to your Facebook status profile and add pictures to your wall instantly. One cool feature allowed you to use the Facebook button while in camera mode and any picture would get quickly uploaded to Facebook. But the phones never caught on, leaving Zuckerberg to continue his quest.
