HTC had a poor 2012, with the One range not selling as well as expected and Samsung starting the big stride into the US and international market, pushing past Apple in overall smartphone sales worldwide.
Adequately named, the HTC First will be the first smartphone to run with Facebook Home added from the start. Impressively, Facebook has managed to keep neutral in the mobile operating system/hardware area, while adding a huge advantage in connectivity with Android users.
Facebook press event rumours turned out to be mostly true, but the social network won’t be delivering a single smartphone or a single operating system, instead, they have redesigned the Android OS to have better interaction between Facebook and the user.
