What is your opinion on Facebook Home as well as the HTC First which was er, for the lack of a better word, first announced just last week? Well, we do know that AT&T in the US will be the only mobile carrier to carry the HTC First on an exclusive basis, where this particular smartphone will arrive right out of the box alongside the Facebook Home launcher pre-installed to get you started straight away. Apart from that, April 12th is also the date that the launcher will be made available in the Google Play Store.
Due to that particular exclusivity period, folks who reside in Canada will have to play the patience card, where they will need to wait for at least a few more weeks before Facebook Home is made available in the Great White North. Oh and by the way, just in case you are wondering whether there is any wisdom in picking up the HTC First in lieu of installing the launcher, a minor difference could help sway your decision, where folks installing the launcher on a compatible smartphone will not be able to check out notifications that are specific to Facebook, save for Cover Feed. There ya go!
