However, we just got word from HTC Oz that “there is no information on Australian
availability for the First, but First will be available with Orange

HTC First is a simple looking 4.3″ screen phone on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU running at 1.4GHz, 16GB of storage, 1GB RAM, and 5-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0, 28mm lens, 1080p Full HD video recording and 1.6MP front cam.

Although some of the specs including the processor isn’t as fancy as say iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S 4 or even HTC’s  One ” but our hands-on time with the First left us optimistic that it’s capable of providing users with a smooth experience” according to The Verge who spent some time fiddling with ‘First’ today.

It’ll come in a slew of colours including black, white, red and blue and is also good value (sell in the US for $99) so will be huge appeal to Gen Y (a Facebook interface, cheap and groovy colours, you can’t go wrong).
