Asia Bizz: Facebook Developing Phone Along With INQ Mobile
The worlds biggest social networking website, Facebook is reported to have been developing a phone with British phone manufacturer INQ Mobile. It is also said that it will be launching the device in the first half of 2011 in the UK, and in the US by the second half.
Facebook on the other hand has denied the claims of building a phone, but then a poll taken in the UK states that almost a quarter of Britons will wish to buy a Facebook branded phone. Others felt that buying a Facebook phone will tamper their privacy, and one way would be risky.
People felt that the new phone should have better features than the Apple iPhone, as Apple has made its iPhone compatible with almost every feature possible in the mobile phone world. Apple even has its own social website ‘Ping’, so this makes Apple a company that has a social website and a smartphone of themselves.
