PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The HTC First, or 'Facebook phone' as many prefer to call it, is officially a flop. It certainly wasn't a good sign when AT&T dropped the price of HTC's First to $0.99 just one month after its debut, and now BGR has confirmed that HTC and Facebook's little experiment is nearing its end. BGR has learned from a trusted source that sales of the HTC First have been shockingly bad. So bad, in fact, that AT&T has already decided to discontinue the phone. Our source at AT&T has confirmed that the HTC First, which is the first smartphone to ship with Facebook Home pre-installed, will soon be discontinued and unsold inventory will be returned to HTC." Wow. That's pretty bad - but not unexpected.

+1000 points to you good sir. Build quality for slate phones doesn't particularly matter that much. If these things had keyboards, I'd understand. Only reason why I didn't get a Palm Pre II was the keyboard's lack of quality.
