Why: Now we know: the Facebook Phone is neither a phone, nor an operating system. Instead, Zuckerberg unveiled a downloadable collection of apps, available April 12, that will be supported on select Android phones to start, including the $99 HTC First, the first device to come pre-loaded with it. Home, as the whole kit of software is called, doesn't replace Android, but modifies parts of the operating system like the phone's lock screen and home screen so users can more readily check Facebook updates and notifications and communicate with other users by way of a new unified messaging feature combining Messenger and text called "Chat heads."
