Facebook (FB) on Friday was true to its word and released Facebook Home for some Android devices. The application, which was announced last week, is only available on select smartphones in the U.S. running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. Compatible devices include the HTC One, HTC One X, HTC One X+, Galaxy S4, Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note II and of course HTC’s (2498) First. Facebook Home gives Android smartphones a complete overhaul with a constant feed of pictures and status updates from users’ Facebook friends. The company also updated its Android Messenger application to include the new Chat Heads feature, which allows users to interact with friends even when another application is open. Facebook Home is available now as a free download on the Google Play store.
