HTC First for AT&T brought its Facebook tricks to the office, here’s the hands-on

The freshly announced HTC First made its way to our office. The AT&T exclusive smartphone, as its name mildly suggests, is the first to come with the Facebook Home Android launcher out of the box.

The HTC First is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with two Krait CPU cores, clocked at 1.4GHz. There’s a gig of RAM and 16GB of built-in memory on board. A 4.3″ 720p Super LCD display, 5MP camera, and 1.6MP front-facing shooter complete the highlights of the device’s spec sheet.
