HTC and Facebook are looking to launch a new device in 2013
Apparently, Facebook hasn’t given up on the HTC branded ‘Facebook’ phone. Bloomberg is reporting that the Facebook is working with a team of engineers from Apple and Palm to help develop a “modified operating system” for a new Facebook phone. While no specific information was provided, it’s likely that the new OS will be based off of Android given it’s popularity among smartphone vendors. Additionally, there was no information provided about the hardware used in the new smartphone. Lets hope that this new device is more than just a simple Facebook button like we saw on the HTC ChaCha.
What features do you think a Facebook phone needs to have to make it successful?
