The cooperation between HTC and Facebook to produce another HTC-based Facebook smartphone has been rumored a lot. Previously, there’re reports that said HTC Myst would be the Facebook smartphone, with detailed specs leaked online already. Whether this report is true or not could be seen in the coming days, as Facebook has introduced various medias to take part in an April 4th Android event. Facebook just sent invitations for its Android-related media event (showed in the picture below) on April 4th, which reads “Come See Our New Home on Android.” According to sources, Facebook would call this new Android-related Facebook experience “Facebook Home…”
As reported, Facebook and HTC are selling their phone and OS as a lifestyle brand, not specifically for its hardware or software. Facebook and HTC previously hooked up on the Salsa and Cha-cha devices which frankly flopped. This will be a deeper, forked version of Android rather than a Facebook-ified version of Sense. Of course, the hardware and software for this phone are competitive with the current mobile device landscape.
