Have ever dreamt of using a Facebook smartphone? I’m sure your answer is a no but the thing that you have never even dreamt of is going to be true! Yes, friends the makers of this popular social networking site have decided to take this bold step and launch a smartphone next year.
It will be a smartphone with its own unique software supporting it. For this purpose, Facebook officials have hired former hardware and software engineers of Apple.
This was first revealed to the world in November. Apparently, Facebook always had such intentions but the desire reached its peak only in November last year.
Mark Zuckerberg expressed his fear of Facebook being reduced to a mere App on other smartphones and lose its importance. They have been making several attempts in this direction and association with HTC has been one of them. Their main aim seems to be a reduction of dependence of consumers on Google and Apple and ultimately more control over them.
Talking about this, a Facebook spokeswoman said “We’re working across the entire mobile industry; with operators, hardware manufacturers, OS providers, and application developers.” Let’s see what their efforts will lead them to.
But we have to wait until next year for that! Meanwhile, do tell me what is your opinion about a Facebook phone. Will you buy it? Or do you think it will just be an extra expense?
