Just today HTC announced the first Android phone with Facebook Home application center. If you’re curious, let’s go on checking what features have been packed in HTC First.
HTC First is a 4.3-inch Android smartphone that runs on Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system, and features integrated Facebook Home application center. This means the screen will be taken over by Facebook, when you activate your HTC First, you can see the latest photos and updates from your friends, double tapping allows you to mark a photo as liked. When you receive messages from Facebook, its “Head Chats” feature can remind you in a form of pop-up small photo. Even though you’re using other app, you still can check and reply the messages from your friends. And you can also use various apps from Facebook. Of course, you can also install Android apps from Google Play, but apparently it’s still a huge threat for Google, and it would be much worse if Facebook integrated their own search engine. Anyway, for Facebook addictive users, Facebook Home is a charming application center, but if you prefer to handle your own smartphone, Facebook Home may not be the best choice.
Moreover, HTC First is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.4GHz dual-core processor, and comes with 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 4.3-inch 720p multi-touch display, 1.3-megapixel front-facing webcam, and 5-megapixel rear camera with 28mm lens and f/2.0, embedded 2000mAh rechargeable battery as well the support of NFC and LTE.
HTC First is available in 4 colors including black, white, blue, and red, each one is priced at $99.99 USD (2-year contract included). At present AT&T has started accepting the pre-orders of the Facebook-friendly Android phone. If you’re interested, jump to AT&T official site for more details.
