Facebook smartphone is one of those long standing rumors in the mobile industry. Mark himself had denied the phone’s existence, but it is reported recently that the social network giant is preparing to unfurl a new smartphone model. The phone will be based on Android OS and manufactured by HTC. Users will get deep integration with most, if not all available Facebook services, including messaging and casual gaming.
The report didn’t come from Facebook directly, but it was revealed by an employee who knows a thing or two about the upcoming launch. Facebook distributed invitations to journalists earlier last week and it promises a significant announcement related to mobile application. There are more than one billion Facebook members and most of them use mobile devices. Consequently, a specialized smartphone model is a natural thing for the social networking giant.
