So, there is actually no Facebook phone, two different reports from Techcrunch & Bloomberg confirm this. Instead, Facebook will most probably be working with INQ to launch a FB integrated Android smartphone.
This smartphone will have Facebook functionalities deeply integrated and will be launched in the first half of next year in Europe, and then in US.
“We’ve been working with INQ for a couple of years now to help them build a deeply integrated Facebook experience on their devices,” Palo Alto, California-based Facebook said in an e- mailed statement. “While we can’t speak for their future product development plans, we can say that our view is that almost all experiences would be better if they were social.”
Remember INQ is already working on an Android phone, which will be coming later this year, which will have social networking integrated deeply.
