HTC First: Stock Android for Just $1 With Contract

HTC First

Like stock Android, wish you could pay a dollar to get it? You can, at least if you are willing to sign a two-year contract with AT&T and take a chance on the HTC First.

For those that don’t know, the HTC First was released only a month ago now, running the custom “Facebook Home” launcher pre-installed. AT&T has apparently decided that the $99 contract price was too much, now offering it for $.99.

Okay, but that’s not stock Android, it has Facebook Home on it, right? The truth is that Facebook Home is easily disabled with a few taps, and underneath it, lies a pretty much vanilla Android experience.

While the specs for the HTC First won’t even begin to compete with the LG Nexus 4, it could still be a solid device for those that can’t afford or don’t want to buy outright. The phone features a dual-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, a 720p 4.3-inch display, a 5MP rear cam, 1.6MP front cam, a 2,000 mAh battery and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

What do you think, could you see yourself buying the HTC First at its newly reduced price? If you did purchase it, would you keep Facebook Home enabled or go with a stock Android experience?
