Only a few are doped with facebook. what is the meaning in notifications like what your friends are doing now , what they ate for breakfast, did they brush their teeth. what time they went to bed last night, what they are they wearing now?. Don't pry into what others are doing better you concentrate on your activities.

HTC, going to died little later after Blackberry.

Both should embrace Microsoft for WP platform.

HTC - with unique UI on WP
Nokia - with unique UI on WP
Blackberry - with unique UI on WP

is far more fruitful than to try any BS with Android.
HTC FB phone? a serious joke, even before it hits market. FB home apk package is available for ALL ANDROIDS. now wheres the differentiator in the market?
Gone... Boooom...

Everyone uses facebook, and that will make it the best UI.

So can't wait for personal ads to show up on my home screen based on my likes. Be a fun and exciting experience to like. I'm voting it just 4 stars.

Get my Full 5 star vote when the ads start coming in just for me

Can't wait Mark.

Everyone download this and show support!
Make it the most popular launcher ever and hopefully
GOOGLE and facebook do a deal so its on every future phone as part of the OS.

Vote yes! and vote high

A very good speced phone spoiled by facebook UI. This would have been HTC's best midrange phone if it had at least 32gb internal memory or expandable by micro sd slot and Sense UI rather than the ugly and nonsense facebook UI.
