Android tablets to get Facebook Home, but still several months out

Facebook Home will find its home on tablets later this year.

All of the hype about Facebook Home has been centered on smartphones and not much has been mentioned about tablets. At this morning's event Cory Ondrejka, director of mobile engineering at Facebook, said that while not available at launch, Facebook Home will be arriving on tablets this year.

"We think this is a really great way to experience tablets. We're not going to be launching on tablets yet, but we'll be trying to get it ready in the coming months", said Ondrejka.

 

For those who use Facebook as their main form of communication I think that Facebook Home on a tablet is a perfect fit. The UI lends itself nicely to large screens, and the home screen feed is truly a thing of beauty when displayed on a large screen. Not much else was said about Facebook Home for tablets, but we will be sure to cover any further information as it is released.
