Why Mention Android at All?

John Sherrod, on Facebook’s “Home on Android” event next week:

If that’s true, the most fascinating thing to me about this invitation is that it mentions Android at all. Lately the trend has been for companies to develop phones and tablets based on a heavily customized version of Android and not even mention Google’s OS in their press events.

Does seem strange. Makes me wonder whether they’re announcing a major new app for Android in general, not just their own device. A new homescreen/launcher replacement, perhaps?
