Negative feedback and poor sales have caused the HTC First phone to halt its release in the U.K. Debuted as the "Facebook phone" in the U.S., the device has already dropped in price to 99 cents. Facebook is reportedly working on improving the software powering the phone as its Facebook Home portal fails to draw in users.
