HTC First with dedicated Facebook Home for Android launched

Facebook Home for Android was not the only thing that was launched at the event, but as expected, a new HTC phone for Facebook has also been announced, this time without the Facebook button. The HTC First will be an exclusive Facebook device with the newly launched Facebook Home for Android interface.
