I’m sure you’ve already heard the huge rumors surrounding a Facebook-branded mobile phone, but have you actually thought about what a Facebook cell phone would look like competing against the iPhone or a Google Android handset?
Firstly, if you haven’t read the rumors on the Facebook phone, you should head to our original article here. Facebook has since denied the rumors by saying that ‘building phones is just not what we do’, but if consumer interest is high enough for such a device, the social networking giant may have to reconsider that stance.
If a Facebook phone were to release, then it’s features would obviously be very much tailored towards the social-networking website, with the majority of features allowing you to interact with your friends more easily and better than ever before. Imagine if Facebook were to partner with HTC on this – that would certainly get me interested in the project.
HTC’s impressive hardware combined with Facebook interaction right from when the user boots up his or her device. If Facebook were to explore a custom-branded handset, then I definitely think it would be a hit with consumers.
The question is though, would it be able to do enough to prize consumers away from the likes of an iPhone 4 or Google Android handset? Let us know your thoughts on this one guys.
