Facebook Phone was launched to become the phone for more than 1 billion Facebook fans. The Phone was supposed to be the mobile users playfield for everything they do socially online. The phone also came with another variant of Facebook app tailored exclusively for the phone. But this could not turn the heads of the Facebook users and the phone went dud.ace
And this may have made AT&T to step-in and take a step which was not taken by the company till date, price reduction. Normally, the price reduction is only done when the new mobile is in the launch line. But the mobile was launched on 4th April. The cellular company has reduced the price of Facebook Phone aka HTC First to $0.99 from $350.99 with 2 year contract. This shows the poor sales performance of the mobile. I am sure, they will come up with something new to get itself positioned in the already competitive and packed Mobile market.
