It was not a long time back, when everyone was waiting for a Facebook Android phone, but after the constant denial from Facebook, the rumors died. But suddenly everything is back, why?
Because INQ, which was supposedly making the Facebook phone or may be two, has recently filed about a new Android handset named ‘Cloud Touch” with Bluetooth SIG. The phone description in the filing is the culprit here:
INQ Cloud Touch is an Android smartphone built to make messaging faster and smarter. It’s designed around the way people naturally communicate and has Facebook built into its core. The homescreen features multiple entry points to different Facebook functions, while a dynamic widget displays a feed of status updates, albums, videos and photos.
Certainly more than enough to give fuel to these rumors. Even if it does not turn out to be a Facebook Phone, but it is going to be one real social phone, with lots of social functionalities built right now for easy usage, including Facebook.
