Facebook Home was introduced with much fanfare one month ago. So far it has not lived up to the hype.
The app for Android smartphones has a two-star rating in the Google Play store. And the HTC First phone -- the first to come preloaded with the Home software, which is available in the U.S. through AT&T -- was recently slashed from $99 with a two-year contract to 99 cents.
Facebook previewed some upgrades to Facebook Home during a small gathering of journalists Thursday at the company’s Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters. The upgrades were designed to address the chief complaint from users: that Facebook takes over the phone at the expense of every other app on it.Facebook To Address "Home" Software Criticism [latimes.com]
Facebook Home flagship phone, HTC First, may be discontinued
Facebook’s HTC First, the smartphone herald of Facebook Home, will be discontinued by carrier partner AT&T, according a report from BGR Monday. The phones, released just over a month ago, will be returned as unsold inventory to HTC, with only 15,000 handsets making it into customers’ hands.

You'd be fairly annoyed if you had bought it at the original price.
