Facebook to Announce a New Smartphone?


To be exact Facebook is to hold an event on April 4th where they will reveal their “New Home On Android”. Rumor has it, it will be a modified Android OS version on an HTC phone.

This poses an interesting question. If it’s a Facebook phone we’re going to get, what kind of phone and who will use it?

Facebook is already available on Android devices as an app, however an integration like this where the phone itself would be focused on content from Facebook not only would make it more accessible but also be a big opportunity to collect a lot of data from the users.

Facebook certainly has motivation to release such a device, the question is if anyone needs it. We will see.
