Facebook will soon be launching a smartphone [unconfirmed]

May 28, 2012
This isn't just a random rumor flying past the internet, but this is a highly expected possibility. Facebook is expected to release a smartphone. This would be one huge step to reserve their spot as one of the top, if not the best, social networking business. You may like to read this post on how Facebook is getting back in the lead in iOS.

 But now it doesn't seem to be simply iOS, but the mobile industry as a whole. Nick Bilton reported on his blog that:
"Employees of Facebook and several engineers who have been sought out by recruiters there, as well as people briefed on Facebook’s plans, say the company hopes to release its own smartphone by next year. These people spoke only on condition of anonymity for fear of jeopardizing their employment or relationships with Facebook."


This is certainly a big move. It would be highly interesting to see if Facebook will be able to complete with iOS and Android. I just hope that the Facebook smartphone won't end up as 'glitchy' and annoying as the Facebook app for iOS. We can't really tell what it will be like until more information on this is revealed. However in the man time we can have a guess. So, do you think a Facebook smartphone will be successful?

And, be sure to share this post with your friends and let them know about this interesting 'rumor'. We have added in interactive sharing in the bottom left of the blog so try them out!
