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.

Facebook App for Android?

Only way I see this succeeding at all, is if Facebook writes an Android App that actually works.
The Facebook Android App is frequently buggy and if you base a phone OS around it, things might be interesting :)
Periodically it works, but then an update arrives that wrecks things. Last one left me unable to post any comments etc from my phone. There have been three or four updates in the past couple of years that have been broken. Often to the extent I've had to uninstall until another update arrived.
I'd imagine the project will be pretty short-lived if they don't sort stability and useability of the central raison-d'être for the phone
