Beyond that, the big papers have reported a partnership with HTC, which will provide the device that runs Facebook apps for all the main functions. In addition to those details, however, a couple of images have made their way onto the Internet. The latest, by way of 9to5Google are just renderings, the first of which could be any phone but is notable because it says "HTC First" on it, supposedly suggesting the name.
