The Facebook phone turned out to really be the Facebook “Home”. Basically an android launcher. By the sounds of it…it’s going to remain android only for a while. No iOS plans anytime soon. The first will be an AT&T exclusive in the US and will hit 3 (Three) and EE in Europe. It’s priced around $99 and will be compatible with AT&T LTE.
Other than the new “Home” there’s not a lot that’s impressive about this phone. It’s a midrange Android device running Jelly Bean 4.1. With Facebook “Home” being availabe for free for other Android devices….we have to ask, do you really think this phone will sell?
Here’s what the rest of the internet has to say about the phone and Facebook Home:
