Facebook Home PhoneDoubt any of you missed the news yesterday afternoon that Facebook announced Facebook Home, which is basically Facebook backed into an Android phone - aka a Facebook phone.

Facebook says this is a way to turn your "Android phone into a great, living, social phone."

How does it differ?

(1) Cover feed, which replaces your home or lock screen by streaming stuff from Facebook there. Stuff like what your friends are sharing on Facebook.

(2) Chat heads, allows you to chat with friends even when using other apps.

(3) Notifications, which shows you more important Facebook notifications with their picture.

(4) Apps and more...

It is coming to the Google Play Store starting April 12 and it works on the HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung GALAXY S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II. It will also come preinstalled via HTC and AT&T on some devices.
