AT&T will discontinue sales of the HTC First, sending all remaining stock back to HTC, due to extremely poor sales of the Facebook Home-packing device, a report this morning claimed.

As of last week, the HTC First sold just 15,000 since its debut on April 12, according to BGR.

Last week is when AT&T slashed the HTC First's price to just $.99 (UK£.64, AU$.97) with a two-year contract.

A social experiment

The HTC First is the only phone to come pre-loaded with Facebook's Android UI overlay Facebook Home.

The ill-fated HTC device was unveiled on stage by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in early April.

Facebook Home itself hit 1 million downloads over the weekend, though its score sits at a miserable two stars.

told TechRadar last week that "people don't seem to want that phone as much."
