facebook phone android invite

Facebook just sent out invites for a press event on April 4 where it invites everyone to "Come See Our New Home on Android." It's perfectly possible that the company will talk about revamped Android applications for smartphones and tablets, but TechCrunch it learned from sources that Facebook will instead introduce an HTC phone running a tweaked version of Android with a Facebook-central homescreen.

HTC has already released phones with Facebook buttons that simply made it easier to post to the social network, but we've recently seen leaks pointing to a device called the HTC "Myst" that is rumored to be a real Facebook phone.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has long denied that the company has plans to launch its own phone, so we'll need to wait until April 4 to hear what's up.
