Resembling the iPhone, the HTC First comes in red, white, blue, and black and will be available for $99.99 starting on April 12. Android users will also be able to download and install Facebook Home on their phones through Google Play.
One of the phone’s core features is Chat Head, which allows users to receive Facebook and text message notifications as rounded images of the person sending the message. The floating heads or Chat Heads follow the user throughout the phone and he or she can respond to the message without leaving the app or screen.
With Facebook Home, users can also scroll through, comment on, and like photos as they would on Facebook’s app. For now, the phone will only run on AT&T but it will soon be available on other networks like Orange, Samsung, Sony and Qualcomm.
According to IDC, smartphone users check Facebook an average of 14 times a day.
Facebook has become increasingly focused on mobile since it went public last year. Over the past year, the company has started displaying ads on mobile devices and revamped its iOS and Android mobile apps. Facebook is the second largest mobile ad publisher in the U.S. after Google, according to a new report from eMarketer, which predicts the social network will pull in $964.9 million in mobile ad revenue this year.
