Facebook Phone, No – Facebookish Phone, Maybe

Facebook on Monday denied a weekend report that it is preparing to launch a branded phone designed to make the mobile phone experience more social, Facebook style. Although rumors spread following an anonymously sourced report that first appeared on TechCrunch purporting that such a phone is coming, the company said that while it is working on spreading its presence in the mobile space, it is not getting into the hardware business. One analyst’s reaction: “Facebook phone sounds like an absurd idea,” said IDC’s Al Hilwa.
