We’ve seen the supposed handset, but is this our first real look at Facebook’s Home launcher for Android? The interface is said to be headed towards an unveiling tomorrow alongside its flagship device, what could be known as the HTC First. While the interface takes a departure from what we have come to expect from Android, it still appears very much based in Google’s ecosystem.
From what we see here, the notifications pane has received a major makeover, and as expected Facebook is making it as easy as possible to jump into the social network directly from the handset.
Perhaps more interesting than the actual appearance of the UI skin is the question of how Facebook will market their mobile offering. Will they take an Amazon-esque approach and minimize their relationship to Android, or will they boldly tout this as an Android device? Some speculation suggests we could see the Home launcher come as a third-party option for all Android devices, but there is little to confirm this as of right now.
