Facebook has just finished their new Home on Android event -- see our live blog for the blow-by-blow) and... it pretty much went as expected. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg showed off their new home screen experience for Android, which he described as people-centric vs. app-centric. HTC's Peter Chou introduced the first phone that'll ship with it built-in, the AT&T-bound HTC First. Beyond that, Facebook Home will also be coming to existing Android devices.
- Facebook announces Home - a group of social Android apps
- Facebook Home coming to Android tablets in coming months
- HTC and AT&T announce the HTC First, coming April 12
- HTC First the first Snapdragon 400-powered phone
And yeah, the HTC First hardware design outline is pretty iPhone-like, which is either conveniently consistent, or depressingly dull, depending on your point of view...
Our Mobile Nations sibling site, Android Central will have continuing coverage throughout the day, so keep it locked there for more.
Meantime, let me know, anything compelling enough about HTC First + Facebook Home to make you consider switching? It's way more than iOS 6's Facebook integration allows, but is that a good thing? Or does the mere idea of Facebook getting all up into your phone jammy make you run screaming from the internet?
