First off, thank goodness it wasn’t a Facebook phone announcement. If you are buying a phone based off of Facebook you might have a serious problem. But the big announcement today was Facebook “Home”, and will be a family of apps that centers around a users social connections.
Light of details, Facebook teamed with android because, Google makes its software available to anyone who wants to design something cool (suck it Apple). “Home” is basically a launcher that will be available on April 12th from Google Play. The experience, is designed to tie the users social network and previously downloaded apps together. Not sure really why this is needed, but let’s just go with it.
Full review will come after we get our hands on it next week. Should be interesting.
