HTC First getting discontinued, source says
After barely a month into its release, the HTC First is set to become discontinued, or so says a source close to BGR. The phone, which already dropped from $99 to $.99 last week, has reportedly sold somewhere south of 15,000 units. Blame AT&T, Facebook, or HTC… whoever ya want, this thing is a sinking ship.
Our source at AT&T has confirmed that the HTC First, which is the first smartphone to ship with Facebook Home pre-installed, will soon be discontinued and unsold inventory will be returned to HTC.
According to insiders, AT&T reps are not fans of the device and are instead pushing other products like the Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5, and HTC One. And, really, the blame probably falls mostly at Facebook’s feet for thinking people want to buy a phone around “more” Facebook.
AT&T’s official stance, however, is that the $.99 price is a promotion and that no future plans have been made in regards to the HTC First.
