Facebook Smartphone?


It seems inevitable, but there is proof now more than ever that Facebook are looking to design their own smartphone. Today sources claim that facebook has headhunted more than a dozen Apple software and hardware engineers in their attempt to design a Facebook smartphone.

There has been a few attempts in the past, but this time, ‘Buffy’ is apparently under development– a phone in coordination with HTC that will try to tackle the fact that facebook currently has no meaningful revenue from mobile app users. Even though they are using post Apple engineers, they will not be trying to tackle Apple’s share in the market, rather, device’s running Android, Google’s mobile operating system.

With so many people using their smartphone’s as a very expensive text message and facebook machine, we can only wait and see when and how popular the Facebook smartphone will be.
