Facebook to Reveal ‘Home on Android’ at Press Event Next Week

Josh Constine, TechCrunch:

Rumors we’ve heard say that the project could actually be called “Facebook Home”, and its hallmark would be a heavily Facebook-ified mobile phone home screen. This could include Facebook news feed stories and data splayed out right on the home screen, along with easy access to Facebook apps.

A few thoughts:

  • I wonder if this is what Mike Matas — and the many other A-team iOS designers Facebook has hired in recent years — have been working on?

  • What does this mean for the Facebook integration in iOS?
