Facebook Phone Update

Read more!
In an article in the Washington Post on January 27, 2011, Facebook denied it was working on a mobile phone.  It stated that the rumor in the City A.M., was wrong in that this phone would not carry the Facebook brand.  It said this was just an example of some phone manufacturers using the Facebook API in an "interesting way."

There was however an interesting screen capture done by Engadget and others that showed a call button appearing in some Facebook pages, leading to speculation that the long awaited integration of Skype with Facebook is on its way.

Our opinion on all of this is simple - expect a Facebook phone in the near future. Whether these two models from HTC are it or not they will come.  They MUST come if Facebook is to carry out its plans.
