Facebook Home Is Now Available On Select Android Devices

The most recent Facebook innovation is now live. Facebook Home is available Friday on the HTC First, HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III, and Samsung Galaxy Note II. For Android users who don’t have these phones, you can still enjoy Chat Heads, which is a prominent messaging feature on Facebook Home.

The HTC First is the flagship phone for Facebook Home technology, and it is currently on sale for AT&T users. The HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III, and Samsung Galaxy Note II all have Facebook Home capabilities starting Friday.

Facebook introduced Home at a press event earlier this month, showing how it is a mobile platform that puts people above applications. Facebook Home essentially makes Facebook the home screen, with highly visual stories from friends and pages users have liked scrolling through automatically.

Readers: Did you download Facebook Home today, or purchase one of the devices?
