As expected, after showing off the new Facebook Home platform for Android phones, Mark Zuckerberg handed the stage over to HTC executives to unveil the first device that will officially run the platform— the HTC First. The device will come in four colors and will be available on AT&T’s 4G LTE network when it launches with Facebook Home preinstalled late this month.

AT&T will start taking pre-orders for the device starting today, and the HTC First will be available on April 12 for $99 exclusively through AT&T. Zuckerberg also hinted the device would be available through other partners in the future including EE and Orange.

On top of the HTC first, Facebook told us Home will be supported on the HTC One and Galaxy S4 in addition to the “HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung GALAXY S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II.”
