In today’s world, social networking is more important that air of water. Some people might be able to get through without food, but not without checking their Facebook accounts at least a few times during the day. Facebook realizing the important part it plays in people’s social lives and recognizing the need for Facebook integration on mobile phones, has collaborated with HTC for new Facebook phone: the HTC First.

HTC First is the first phone that will be released running on the Facebook Home user interface. This isn’t the first time that HTC and Facebook have collaborated. HTC has previously launched the ChaCha, Status, and Salsa, all of which had special Facebook integration, beyond the normal app. However, the HTC First will be the first to actually have a user interface (UI) based on Facebook.

The Facebook Home UI will consist of Cover Feed which will use the home screen and lock screen to show content posted by friends on Facebook, as well as notifications from other apps. It also has an overlay over any and all apps, which allow users the ability to message others via Facebook or SMS, without leaving the app. The lock icon on the lock screen will show the profile picture of the user.

The HTC First also offers the users the ability to turn off the Facebook Home UI, in case they choose to. When Facebook Home is disabled, the phone will revert to stock Android, in this case Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The phone will also be the first smartphone to include Instagram, recently-acquired by Facebook, as a pre-loaded app.

The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8930 Snapdragon 400 1.4 GHz Dual-core Krait and a 1 GB of RAM. The phone will come with as in-built memory of 16 GB and no external memory. The phone also has an embedded Li-Po 2000 mAh battery.

The phone has a 4.3 inch Super LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The primary camera on the phone is a 5 MP with BSI sensor and a 1.6 MP front-facing secondary camera, also with BSI sensor.

Xolo is a subsidy of Lava, a technology and mobile phone company based in India. In addition to making handsets for the Indian Market, Lava has various other segments under its banner, such as tablets, datacards and routers. As the India market is very price sensitive, Lava has had to produce an affordable range of phones. The Android based smartphones of the company are mainly released under two of its brands: Iris and Xolo.

Xolo came around when Lava tied up with Intel to release the Intel based smartphone, the Intel AZ510 in India. The phone was branded as Xolo X900. The brand endured and now handles Lava’s mid-range Android-based smartphones. The Xolo X100 is one such phone that Lava has released into the market.

XOLO X1000 is an Intel-based smartphone. The XOLO x1000 runs on a single-core Intel Atom Processor Z2480. It has a processing speed of 2 GHz due to its hyper threading capabilities, as well as a 1 GB RAM. It is a single-SIM phone with 8 GB of internal memory. It comes with Android OS v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is a bit outdated, but the company has promised an update by the end of 2013. The phone also features a 4.7 inch Sharp TFT LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The phone hosts an 8 MP primary camera with burst mode, and a 1.3 MP secondary camera.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the HTC website, theverge.com and GSMArena.com.
