The new Facebook phone is official, and it'll launch this month

We're live at Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, Calif. where HTC and AT&T have taken the wraps off the HTC First, the first handset to come with the new Facebook Home experience out of the box.

A minimalist design with curved corners and a widescreen display, the HTC First puts Facebook Home's content and people-centric UI front and center. The device runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a 4.3-inch screen, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU.

The HTC First will be available on April 12, for $99.99 on AT&T in four color options -- black, white, red and blue. Preorders begin today. In Europe, it'll launch on EE and Orange.

Keep watching Android Central for more information as it emerges. In the meantime, we've got more photos after the break.
