A Facebook phone did sound like a good idea when it was first mooted, but Facebook does not seem to be in the best of spirits at this point in time. HTC’s ChaCha and Salsa were once touted to be the Facebook phones when they were first announced some time ago, but those never really took off. Well, an anonymous source did mention to Bloomberg that there is a spanking new Facebook branded handset that is in the pipeline, and it will be developed by HTC. The thing is, there are whispers that sometime in the middle of 2013, the Facebook smartphone will finally debut – which is very far away from the original Q3 release this year.
Well, there has been no official announcement of the Facebook phone that was announced by either the social network giant or HTC, so we are working on presumption at this point in time. Should it run, it will most probably be a heavily modified version of the Android operating system. There are also whispers that this particular handset will be powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 platform.
