Some said it will be the Facebook phone by HTC. Others said it would be an OS. More info. and photos have been leaked, revealing it will essentially be both.

Apparently, Facebook is building a modified version of the Android OS, giving users a more interactive home screen experience. It is rumored to include more social functionality, including features from Facebook’s News Feed and Messenger. An HTC phone (code-named Myst) will likely come pre-loaded with the software, but will possibly be available to a number of Android phones, giving the social giant a much wider reach than simply building its own phone. So we may see it pop up in Google Play sometime soon after the launch.

Only time will tell what exactly Facebook is up to, but world domination is definitely on the menu.
