HTC Cooking Up a Couple Facebook Phones?


Here we go again with more Facebook phone rumors. While the upcoming INQ Cloud Touch has up until now been whispered about as the phone that could most closely be called a true “Facebook Phone,” perhaps the social network giant will be offering up its brand through several companies as a (at the moment) very shaky rumor is suggesting HTC will also deploy a couple Android devices featuring more robust Facebook support.

That support is said to include direct integration of Facebook chat and voice calling features, as well as news feed and messages homescreen widgets. Of the pair of handsets we are hearing of, one might even get a physical QWERTY keyboard. We seriously doubt any phone will ever be released as the Facebook Phone. We also suggest you take this particular rumor with a large grain of sodium chloride. We will possibly know more by MWC 2011.

  6. A Facebook phone is a phone for children or really silly adults.

  7. next comes facebook tablets calling it!

  8. Twitter Phone, that would be more popular in the android community than a “Facebook phone” especially if it had direct integration with Tinychat via Front facing camera, lol

  9. It’s a LAME idea.

  18. @Kevin: I’ve never played a FB game.. so, I had no clue how they ran. In that case… then I have no idea what the “FaceBook phones” bring to the table that all other Android phones already got.
    @Alex: What’s the official FaceBook app lacking for you? For me, I wish I could see “group pages” or whatever they are called called. I can always open up the web browser and go, if I really want to see those.
