A Facebook Phone?


A Facebook Phone? 
According to TechCrunch's Michael Arrington's sources, Facebook is creating its own cellphone. As the story goes, they're building the OS, and have tasked a hardware manufacturer to build everything else. Anyone else think this sounds like a Facebook-flavored Peek?
Scared by Google's impending Nexus One (which was announced back in January of this year), Facebook supposedly began planning their phone. Something that would integrate Facebook contacts more deeply than anything Android or any other platforms had done before.
Arrington scribed on a blog post this morning that two Facebook employees, Joe Hewitt and Matthew Papakipos are leading the charge on the OS, using their previous careers as Firefox browser creator and Chrome OS builder (respectively) to launch something Facebook can be proud of. Whether the rest of the world would be proud carrying a Facebook phone is another matter entirely—though I don't have any doubts that this would be a very affordable phone aimed at the young 'uns, if it does amount to something other than speculation.

  5. I recently deleted my facebook account. I would suggest doing the same. Having that much personal data on the web is just scary.

  7. This is sooo gonna flop. the G1 or "Google phone" was such a hype and it was popular...but what of it now. I don't think its smart for companies to make phones like this...But I suppose its a cool idea in theory. Anyways, cool blog man.


    Much love and a lil currency support going your way

  8. Pretty cool idea, but personally I'd stick with the app on my iPhone depending on if they ever get the app to stay connected properly.

  9. Facebook will eventually know everything, and once it does the truth becomes inevitable, there will be no resistance, only assimilation in to the hive mind of innumerable drones. This is the unchangeable future
