It turns out, that the big Facebook Android event the social network has us marked in our calendars, is where it will launch a new smartphone. @evleaked above, the device will be named "First," will be made by HTC, and will run a customized version of Android that has 1. a custom user interface designed by Facebook; and 2. the ability to run Facebook apps, with its own dedicated app launcher, separate from Google Play. The device itself looks extremely generic -- a 4-inch (ish) black touchslab, which is nothing like the silvery Facebook phones HTC previously launched, so we'll have to take this leak with a pinch of salt.
