Recent rumors have suggested that Facebook (FB) is planning to announce brand new Android software during a press conference on Thursday, and the company has reportedly partnered with HTC to launch the first handset that will showcase the software, appropriately named the HTC First. According to leaked images published by 9to5Google, the Facebook Home software will feature a minimal user interface with full-screen Facebook photographs while also providing easy access to primary Facebook functions such as status updates, photo uploads and check-ins. Facebook’s press conference is scheduled to take place at 1:00 p.m. EDT on April 4th and BGR will be on hand reporting live.
