This is good for kids. Facebook is no longer for the adult crowd....unless you enjoy Instagrams of people's dinners.

It seems FB is just a parasite(In this case for Android) with very rapid mutation in order to gather people information!

HTC First has really sweet specs, but on ATT it is NOT cheap!

i think its actually a good idea and very practical for those who cant stay away from facebook. from regular ppl who dont care for the millions of notifications we get on our facebook, its wouldnt be that good. but a launcher is more practical. a facebook phone is a failure.

You are confusing facebook integration with the default user interface (which is present also in Android, where FB contacts are integrated in the addressbook, pictures can be shared directly and so on) with a complete replacement of the entire launcher, a thing that is common in Android (there are many launchers available, and you can choose the one you prefer) but that you can't do neither with windows phone nor with iphone. To be clear: the home screen is made by live tiles in WP and icons in iOS, and you can't change this (you can, at most, add a live tile for facebook in WP), while in Android you can customize the whole interface as you like.

Just the thing is that at present only quad cores with 1-2GB of Ram are available.... LOL you didn't knew that....

Best possible move from Facebook. Trying to compete by making phones would never work. Making their own OS would be too much of a gamble.
This way Facebook can get their stuff on the best and most popular models out there.

However Facebook isn't the only popular social media out there, and those who wants a social launcher are probably the ones that are active on many of those services and not just the one (Facebook)
