A report surfaced early Monday morning that suggested HTC First sales were bad. So bad, in fact, that AT&T moved fewer HTC First units during its first month on sale than it did with the HTC Status a few years ago.
As a result, the report claimed that AT&T was disappointed in the phone and had plans to discontinue it in the near future. While it will face an eventual end-of-life status, and its recent price drop suggests that could be sooner than later, AT&T has not finalized its plans to discontinue the phone.
“As mentioned previously, we do pricing promotions all the time and have made no decisions on future plans,” an AT&T spokesperson told TechnoBuffalo. The HTC First is now 99 cents and we wouldn’t be surprised to see it drop to free on contract before it is eventually discontinued. Still, it appears that AT&T has not yet settled on when that will happen.
