    The new Facebook Home Phone, the HTC First will actually launch as AT&T's flagship device on April 12th for $99 bucks on contract. This is a baffling move on the part of both HTC and AT&T as it will take away attention from a device that deserves the flagship label, the HTC One. It's obvious it is designed as a huge marketing push for AT&T, HTC and primarily Facebook.

    It seems like average customers might have a very confusing time deciding on new AT&T smartphones this spring. They will get to pick from the HTC One which is a high-end and award winning device, or the HTC First which is a Facebook-focused phone. If the names alone don't cause a mental "hour-glass," trying to compare specs and features surely will.

    So, who wants to speculate on future HTC devices? How about the HTC Single or the HTC Neo?

    HTC seems to be digging the hole deeper.

    I downloaded the Facebook home app and found it really annoying to use. Removed it a couple of hours later.
