"We're not building a phone and we're not building an operating system," CEO Mark Zuckerberg said. "We're building something a whole lot deeper than an ordinary app."

Today, phones are designed around people, not apps, Zuckerberg said. "We want to flip that around."Facebook Introduces "Home" Apps For Android Phones [newsroom.fb.com]
Home isn't a phone or operating system, and it's also more than just an app. Home is a completely new experience that lets you see the world through people, not apps.
From the moment you wake up your phone you become immersed in cover feed. Cover feed replaces the lock screen and home screen. It's a window into what's happening with your friends - friends finishing a bike race, your family sharing a meal or an article about your favorite sports team. These are the beautiful, immersive experiences that you get through Home.
Home will be available as a free download from the Google Play Store starting April 12. Home works on the HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung GALAXY S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II. Home will also work on the forthcoming HTC One and Samsung GALAXY S4, and on more devices in the coming months.

Home will also be available pre-installed on phones through the Facebook Home Program [link]. HTC and AT&T are the first companies working together to deliver a phone with Home. It's called the HTC First and it goes on sale April 12.

And who should install it. Both of my daughters are often on Facebook by their notebook, both have Android cell phones, both will never install something like this.

An other scam to harvest information for placing adds LoL
Why should we install this or buy this stupid phone, seems that Google using open source (free) software is interseted as +1 does not really work
Zap F Book it su..cks
Social networking is not social it just de-humanizes mankind
with an illusion of participating in the great big world
A bit like online dating, no more real values no seduction no personal contact
As far as I am concerned I wish them no luck
So bets are open, how long before G buys FB, maybe its already done?
I would like to have my old Motorola back !
