HTC First

HTC First, the first smartphone to come with Facebook Home for Android pre-loaded, has been announced a little while ago at Facebook’s Android event and will be available for pre-order at AT&T starting today.

Deliveries of the HTC First will start on April 12, the same day Facebook Home gets released and the price of the new smartphone will be $99 with new two-year contracts. According to AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega, pre-orders will start immediately on a dedicated page on the AT&T website.

The smartphone, which HTC CEO Peter Chou has called “the ultimate social phone”, will come in four colors, and, according to Mark Zuckerberg, it will be available in Europe, too (but no date has been mentioned), from Orange and EE.

How about you? Will you get an HTC First, once it’s available in your country?
