HTC First, Facebook Home Notifications, Chat Heads and Cover Feed demoed in videos
Facebook on Thursday unveiled its new Home software for Android smartphones, a people-based social-centric user interface that runs on top of Android OS, complete with an application launcher.
While Home will ultimately run on a variety of devices, it will only be supported by six handsets in the first weeks, including the brand new HTC First smartphone, a device built by HTC with Home pre-loaded.
Home will launch on the Google Play Store on April 12, at which time AT&T will also release the HTC First.
While you wait to see Home in action, you can check out the following videos that promote the HTC First as well as various Home features including the new Chat Heads messenger application, the Cover Feed (a Blink Feed like feature based on Facebook updates), and the Home notification system.
