Facebook on Thursday unveiled a software suite which stakes out a 'home' on Android smartphones as it steps up its challenge to Apple and Google in the booming mobile market. Facebook called the new software 'a new way to turn your Android phone into a great, living, social phone.' The software, which allows users to see Facebook's 'Cover Feed' when they turn on their phones, will be available for download from Google's online Play shop in the United States starting April 12, Zuckerberg said.
