Live: Facebook Phones 'Home'

The Atlantic Wire

In just a few moments Facebook is expected to unveil an HTC phone running a Facebook-optimized version of Android software — a big leap for the social network into mobile that also happens to have been leaked all over the place. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has already said that Facebook doesn't need to "build" a phone — and it would appear that it hasn't. Instead, he got HTC and Google to do most of the building, using the gadget maker's body and the Android OS to house a Facebook-first platform. Rumor-mongers expect that the new phone's home screen will open up to the new News Feed, and then start to look a lot like Facebook and its package of apps, including Messaging and Camera. Watch the rumors come true in the live stream below, and stay tuned for live updates and details.
