The big hitters this week on Android Authority on Air was all things Facebook Phone. We covered the new HTC First, a mid-low range phone shipping with Facebook's launcher built in and Facebook Home. The HTC First isn't a bad device for the price and if you're a Facebook fan you'll probably love it. The same goes for the standalone launcher, Facebook Home.
