Facebook Home – new Launcher program for Android Phones

Mark Zuckerberg today announced ‘Facebook Home’ – an application called a ‘Launcher’ that will work on Android phones, beginning April 12th.

When asked why did they not go with a Facebook phone, Facebook’s Zuckerberg replied “A great phone might sell 10 or 20 million units at best, but our community has over 1 billion people. Even if we built a really good phone, we’d only be serving 1 percent” of Facebook users.
