Facebook Home

The Facebook Home launcher/app is expected to debut on the HTC First, previously known as the Myst, at Facebook’s Android event tomorrow.

Now, a set of screenshots have been posted by 9to5Google that could reveal what the interface of the HTC First will look like. If real, the screenshots, which originate from the well-known supplier of inside info @evleaks, show a surprisingly simple interface. On the home screen, users will be familiar with the “Status”, “Photo”, and “Check In” buttons currently in the Facebook mobile app, but since Facebook Home is built on top of Android, they’ll still have access to Google Play.

From what appears to be the lockscreen, notifications are shown very cleanly, giving you a quick glance at what’s going on.

If you’re familiar with the photo gallery in Jelly Bean, it’s virtually identical on Facebook Home. You can browse through all your photos or videos, and easily share to different apps.

Tech lover and enthusiast, I've been rocking Android since the EVO 4G. When I'm not here writing, you can find me on social media or cracking jokes that nobody laughs at.

    Sweet, not.

    If we really wanted that than we could just easily port the launcher to our existing phone, a facebook phone is just a lame idea

    • The launcher seems like a good idea, but the phone is a horrible idea.

      • Seth Forbus

        I don’t want the launcher either! I’m fine with stock touchwiz or even the stock android jellybean interface.

      • MasterMuffin

        the app is already so horrible that they should fix it first before trying anything weird like this sh… shovel :D

    Facebook phone. yuk :(

    This Facebook joke begins to stretch a little bit to far. It’s the 3rd of April now, April’s Fool days is over two days already. It gets tiring to see all these useless FB stuffs.

      hey dood its not a joke

  • mjolnirxz

    Can htc please make a nexus instead of a fb phone…

    • been there, done that

      • mjolnirxz

        and they did a wonderful job with the N1, so whats your problem with them making the next nexus?

  • Jimmy Flete

    I’d only accept this phone is sold like the Nexus devices , Unlocked and without any CARRIER commitment….other than that, is a complete POINTLESS DEVICE !

  • If this is how the launcher would look on all phones then I would, AT LEAST, give a try. Because it looks better than the Sense 4+ that is currently on my phone.

  • DrCarpy

    I hate Facebbook. Keep the Google+ magic coming, enough Facebook junk….

  • I don’t know how good the OS is, but phone design is so damm ugly. Just a GS1 + iPhone’s button, though it’s not a physical one

  • YUCK…..[+]

  • Terrible specs, why would you choose this over any other flagship phone on the market,why would anyone choose this over an s4 for example

    • Lowry Brooks

      Well it’s not like they are going to charge 199 on contract or 599 off contract for it. My bet is, its free on contract on all carriers and they sell it off contract for 199

  • tlc000

    so i still don’t get why i need this and how it is different with customized launcher???

    • they’re trying to make exciting headlines and buzz etc. in other words, you’re right – you don’t need it.
