A look at the HTC First, aka the 'Facebook phone' (pictures)

HTC's First is, in fact, the first handset that's fully integrated with Facebook's new Android interface app, Facebook Home.

Photos are your start screen

Facebook messages become your start screen. If you don't like Facebook Home, you can disable it completely and use the First as a stock Android phone.

Sealed off

With the exception of openings for the headset jack, Micro-USB charging port, and SIM card slot, the First is all sealed up. That means there's no microSD card slot or removable battery.

A soft touch

Luckily, it's coated with a soft-touch finish that makes the First comfortable to hold.

Camera business

The First's 5-megapixel camera takes some pretty good shots for its resolution, and also captures 1080p HD video. Nice!
