After much publicity back in April, HTC and Facebook have decided to pull the plug the “First” phone’s launch in the UK.
The Facebook phone was earmarked to be released on EE network through Orange. Pre-Order customers are being informed of the cancellation, by email.
Mobile News quoted the story from sources that are claiming the plug was pulled by Facebook rather than HTC, an anonymous person saying, very poor US sales have made the decision by Facebook easier to make, albeit a sad one.
It’s a pity that its come to this as the phone was actually quite good. Still that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
