Facebook Phones Coming 2011

Facebook Phones Coming 2011

By Tim Martin

Facebook is working with INQ on creating 2 smartphones that will be released in Europe in the 1st half of 2011, and in the US the 2nd half of 2011. Sources say that the phones will run the Android operating system and AT&T will be the US carrier.

Facebook had denied previously that they were working on a smartphone, but when asked for comment by Bloomberg, they released this statement via email:

"We`ve been working with INQ for a couple of years now to help them build a deeply integrated Facebook experience on their devices. While we can`t speak for their future product development plans, we can say that our view is that almost all experiences would be better if they were social."
