The long-rumored Facebook Phone has just been announced and its not quite what you think. Facebook Home is a front-end of sorts for Android that transforms your phone with a simple new UI that seamlessly integrates Facebook's services and applications. One example is the Cover Feed which will replace your lockscreen and home screen to give you instant updates from your friends and family. You'll also see your FB messages pop right onto your screen with the "Chat Heads" feature and notifications will appear right on your screen as well. Home will be available on April 12th and is currently compatible with the HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung GALAXY S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II. More devices will be added to the list and will also be pre-installed on exclusive handsets from HTC and AT&T. Facebook
