Facebook Home -- the new app suite announced today by Mark Zuckerberg at the 'Facebook's New Home on Android' event -- has been confirmed in an after-event Q&A session to be compatible only with devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. That means any phones or tablets running an Android version older than 4.x are out of luck when it comes to using the upcoming Facebook software.
Right now the official list of phones that'll support Facebook Home at launch is as follows: HTC One, HTC One X, HTC One X+, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note II, and of course the HTC First.
It is not known if compatibility will be opened up for older Android versions such as Gingerbread later -- unlikely as that is -- or if Facebook Home will only support ICS and up going forward. Heavy Facebook users might want to start checking out new phones, like the Facebook's own HTC First.
