Facebook is back in the mobile hardware game - in a way.  The popular social network has combined with HTC and AT&T on the HTC First, the first (no pun intended) smartphone to launch with the new Facebook Home software out of the box.

Specs include:

  • 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 CPU
  • 4.3-inch HD (720p) display
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording
  • 2,000 mAh battery
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Facebook Home preinstalled
  • Available at AT&T for $99.99 in blue, black, red, and white

One major perk is the ability to turn Facebook Home off, But the question remains: even for die-hard Facebook fans, is it worth getting this device when the same application/overlay can be installed on select high-end Android smartphones?  Part 1 of 2.
