If you fancy the HTC First – the handset announced yesterday that runs Facebook Home, the social network’s home screen on steroids – you will have to wait a while.
The device goes on sale in the United States on 12 April, but won’t land in the UK until the early summer where it will be an EE exclusive.
In addition to Facebook Home the First runs Android Jelly Bean OS, sports a dual-core Qualcomm 1.4GHz processor, includes 16GB of storage and packs a 5 mega pixel camera.
Pippa Dunn, chief marketing officer, EE, said: ‘We’re proud to have been chosen by Facebook and HTC to be their UK launch partner for the HTC First. In combining our unique superfast network with the latest integrated Facebook experience, customers will constantly be at the centre of conversations with their friends.’
Peter Chou, CEO of HTC said: ‘Along with our partners and fellow innovators–EE in the UK–we anticipate excitement from customers when the HTC First becomes available, putting a user’s friends and family at the centre of their mobile experience.’
