Is this what the 'Facebook Phone' looks like? A day ahead of the major Facebook event tomorrow, a few sites have posted leaks of the alleged Facebook Phone.
The phone is supposedly called the HTC First, and will feature Facebook's Android variant, rumored to be called "Home."

If accurate, the device itself does look like a rather generic HTC device, but it is also unclear who the phone will be marketed to.

As reported, the Facebook Home will be a modified version of Android that includes deep integration with the social network. It will keep most of Android's foundations but will have "all sorts of extra Facebook functionality built in." The home screen would be highly dedicated to Facebook. This could include a widget reading Facebook news feed stories, and easy access to Facebook Messenger, Facebook voice calls and picture uploads.

The event is scheduled for 10AM PST tomorrow.
