Aaron unboxes and takes a first look at the HTC First, the first (no pun intended) phone to launch with Facebook Home preinstalled out of the box.  Available now at AT&T for $99.99 in white, blue, red, and black, the First is the second attempt to combine Facebook and a smartphone together.

Specs include:

  • 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU
  • 4.3-inch HD 720p display
  • 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (stock) with Facebook Home preinstalled

Facebook Home is coming to Google Play today, and will be available for download onto the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, Note II, and HTC One.  This phone won't appeal to those seeking the highest-end specifications, but it offers a nice blend of features, functionality, and price for many Facebook-hungry consumers.  Beyond that, you can disable Facebook Home and use it as a stock Android device, making it near-perfect for enthusiasts that find the Nexus 4 too large.
