The First Sign That Facebook Home Is Crumbling

It's been just over a month since Facebook  unveiled Home, a suite of software apps and services that integrate with Google  Android devices. It's been less than a month since the HTC First launched as the first model with Home pre-installed, and exclusive carrier AT&T  has already dropped its price.

The First is now available for $1 on contract, down from $100 on contract when it launched just a few weeks ago. That's a bad sign that implies that First sales are weak, which doesn't bode well for Home.

In the video below, Fool contributor Evan Niu, CFA, explains why it's all right if Home crumbles.
