Just when you thought there weren't enough cellphone choices out there comes a brand new contestant - the Facebook Phone

Instead of getting a home screen, you get a thing called a "Cover Feed", so the first thing you will see are your status updates and other people's pictures.  According to the article

It's available for Android or the iPhone, by the way.
