AT&T have announced that the HTC-built 'Facebook Phone' has been sold out, with the telco not buying another batch of phones. AT&T have denied urmors that they were discontinuing the phone, even after they pushed the price down to $1 on a two-year contract only two months after its release.

When the $1 sale was happening, AT&T Mobility CEO, Ralph de la Vega said: "We sold a bunch more when we lowered the price, we sold everything we had on that." He believes that the sale of the phone will help AT&T's corporate relationship with Facebook in the long run: "We have a great relationship with Apple just like we have a great relationship with Facebook," the executive said. "We look forward to working with them to make Home better."

 

It looks like Facebook Home put a dent in any Facebook phone that could be released, so did Facebook shoot themselves in the foot releasing Home, or did they attempt to build their own smartphone and work out that it's better to just have an app or service that hundreds of millions can use. I know which one I'd be doing...
