    Is Facebook Developing their Own Mobile Smartphone?

    Facebook is working on their own mobile handset. The reports claim that
    Facebook’s Joe Hewitt and Eric Tseng (previous Facebook iPhone app
    developer and previous Senior Product Manager for Android at Google) are heading up the project. Business Insider, however, is saying that the scope of the project is more of a mobile-OS project in nature. They Tre rumored to be
    using Android as the base layer and heavily customizing the UI,
    applications, and experience.

    The project won’t be ready until late 2011.
    Facebook PR says they are not building a phone.  We’ll have more definitive
    news about the subject to come.
