If AT&T dropping the price of the HTC First or the Facebook Phone from $99 to $0.99 on contract wasn’t bad enough news has now come in that Facebook has pulled the Facebook Phone from distributing in the UK.
Sources have said that the decision to pull the HTC First from distribution was Facebook, not HTC as you’d expect. The HTC First was scheduled to come to the UK in the next few months exclusively to EE but sources have said that this is no longer the case, and that customers who pre-ordered the HTC First will be informed shortly that their pre-orders have been cancelled.
According to UK publication MobileNews their sources said: “The HTC First has been pulled and will never go on sale in the UK. Sales in the US were poor and Facebook has taken the decision not to give it a more widespread release.”.
Luckily if you want to experience what the HTC First would have been like, if you have one of a few selected devices you can still download Facebook Home from the Play Store.
