It's being called the HTC "first" and it comes in red, white, light blue and black

Photos of the upcoming Facebook phone have made their way to the internet, and many are saying it looks like a large iPhone.

It was recently confirmed that HTC would be making the hardware for the Facebook phone, and that the device is supposedly called HTC "first." By the looks of the photos circulating around the Web, the "first" looks like a large iPhone -- but with a colorful touch.

As you can see from the photo, the HTC device comes in red, white and light blue. There is also a black model. 


The HTC device will be powered by the Android operating system with some Facebook flavor. It is not expected to be a full rewrite of Android, but rather a version that is just heavily integrated with Facebook's different features. It is said to have a Facebook homescreen and native apps like Facebook Messenger.

The phone could provide Facebook news feed stories right on the home page, link your phone contacts with those who are also Facebook friends, etc. It is expected to be a full social phone experience.

There has also been talk about a Facebook launcher rather than a fully customized Android OS. 
 
Might want to be careful with that design, HTC; Apple has been on a lawsuit spree

Yeah, this would look exactly like the 3G if you took some black electrical tape and taped off about 1/4" off the top and another 1/4" off the bottom. There, giant bezels, just the way iPhone fans want it. Oh, and while they're at it disable two of the three buttons because nobody needs more than one button.
Tiffany should be fired. I read one article and she screwed up the use of its and now she's just outright saying anything looks just like an iPhone. Can her ass.
