HTC First

Facebook Home-powered phone will be exclusive to the UK's first 4G network

British mobile network EE has announced that it'll exclusively carry the new HTC First in the UK. The first handset to run the new Facebook Home suite out of the box, the HTC First also packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, a 4.3-inch screen and 4G LTE connectivity.

No UK pricing or release date has been offered yet, but with the phone launching on Apr. 12 in the U.S. we'd imagine it'll be hitting British shores sooner rather than later.

HTC First an EE exclusive in the UK

Not to be a downer but I wonder how many permissions Facebook has to everything you would do on this phone?

Say "goodbye" to what little privacy we have left.

Facebook Home is a system app. System apps can do whatever the fuck they want, including read call logs, send/receive/read text messages, and so on.

But I'm not worrying about it. I'm not a tinfoil man, lol.

Too bad, the other half would have definitely been interested in a "facebook phone" but she wouldn't want to leave Vodafone.
