Facebook Home, the social network's new user interface for Android, won't be available for download until April 12th. Even when it hits the Google Play Store, Home will only run on 7 phones, one of which is the newly-released HTC First that has it preloaded. Fortunately, you can get a more immersive Facebook…
So Facebook Home is coming to Android phones. But just the good Android phones. The HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III, Note II, and the new HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and HTC First for now. That's it, that's the list. If your phone is more than a year old, no Facebook Home for you. And that's how it has to…
Excited about the new Facebook phone, iPhone users? Well, too bad—apparently, it won't be coming to iOS any time soon.
One of the centerpieces of Facebook's new interface are "chat heads," Facebook's vision for the way that we should do messaging. Sounds fun! But what are they, exactly? And will they really change how we communicate?
The HTC First is a new smartphone that's deeply integrated with Facebook Home. The AT&T phone runs on a modified version of Jelly Bean and it's the only phone to come pre-loaded with Facebook Home.
We've been talking about it for years now—half dread, half excitement—and now it's no longer just our imaginations. The Facebook Phone is as real as it's probably ever going to get: it's called Facebook Home a complete Android takeover that converts your smartphone.
Facebook's got a new phone. And a new home screen. They're going to be fine, probably, more or less. But you are also asleep now because the idea of a Facebook phone bores you, deeply. Maybe it shouldn't. In a perfect world, there's a compelling case for a true blue Facebook phone.
It's widely believed that Facebook will announce a new Android phone UI, called Home, along with accompanying HTC hardware at an event tomorrow. I know, we're all thinking, "Ugg, Facebook phone." But everything we've heard is really exciting. 9To5Google claims to have some shots of the new UI, and if they're real,…
The WSJ is reporting that Facebook's upcoming Android event will be a home screen—as in the first screen you see when you flip on your phone—dedicated to Facebook. It will "display content from users' Facebook accounts on a smartphone's home screen."
Next week, Facebook is going to show us its "new home on Android." What does that mean? We're not sure—we could be days away from The Facebook Phone, or just a lovely new life-consuming app. But here are our best bets for what Zuck has up his Androidy sleeves.
Facebook just invited the press to an event at Facebook HQ that'll show off Facebook's "new home on Android". Is this the much talked about (and denied) Facebook phone? Will Facebook be using the Android OS to build a layer of Facebook on top of? HMM. Or is this just some new version of the Android Facebook app? We'll…
Zuck's on the phone with (antsy) investors right now, and, of course, the question of the unicorn Facebook Phone came up. His reply? No, The Book isn't building a phone.
Facebook is working on a phone! But Facebook has been working on a phone. What's new? Well, it's a completely different project because their first top secret effort crashed and burned. It's a sordid history of employee jealousy, secret plans, power struggles and just plain failure.
It strikes me that we don't need that much more Facebook integration in our lives, seeing as we already have kids named after it. That won't stop HTC, who've just come out with the Status. A true Facebook phone. Hooray?
