I spotted this last night and really didn’t think there was much merit to it so decided to shy away from posting however it seems that today more an more sources are confirming that sales of the worlds first “Facebook Phone” are terribly low in fact, so low that AT&T have decided to reduce the cost to just $0.99 on a 24 month contract from $350.99 in a bid to shift them.
The main rumour is though that AT&T have decided not only to reduce the price but start discontinuing them with remaining stock being returned to HTC.
Now whilst this may very well be true, I find it a little crazy. The handset itself is actually pretty neat if you remove Facebook Home from it. With a 1.4 GHz Dual Core CPU, 2000 mAh battery and a 4.3 inch screen it’s more than worth the $0.99 that it’s been reduced to. Let’s not also forget the fact that this is an LTE handset which adds a little more value to it’s worth.
Would you buy one at this price?
