HTC First

Description

HTC First is the first Android phone that will come with preinstalled Facebook Home which is designed around people instead of prioritizing apps like other phone interfaces do. By doing so, the software aims to deliver a more personal experience to Facebook users. At the same time, it should be easy to use with its minimalist, simple interface. As soon as the phone is turned on, the user's list of notification appears with their profile picture at the bottom. Need to dismiss something? Then all it takes is a swipe to the side. A swipe up brings the list of all installed applications. Something that's unique to Facebook Home is the Chat Heads feature (and no, we aren't making that name up). Simply put, when you're in a chat with someone, it puts an icon with their picture in the screen's corner for quick and easy access. There is even a counter that shows how many lines of text you've missed.
