Facebook Phone Could Arrive Next Year

Rumours of a Facebook Phone have been going around since last weekend. First off, it was expected that a Facebook Phone was going to be built which was then denied by Facebook.

We are now hearing that INQ could be making a Facebook phone. Reports indicate that a couple of Facebook phones could be launched by INQ with an estimated release date of some time next year.

Although Facebook denied the phone, Mark Zuckerberg recently said in an interview with TechCrunch that they are looking at some kind of integration with a mobile platform rather than a regular log on type service that we see now.

On phones we can actually do something better. We can do a single sign-on if we do a good integration with a phone, rather than just doing something where you go to an app and it’s automatically social or having to sign into each app individually. Those are the two options on the web. Why not for mobile? Just make it so that you log into your phone once, and then everything that you do on your phone is social.

A new OS is not being built by Facebook. The company even suggested that it would be impossible for them to have created an OS due to the length of time it takes to do that. It is unclear how integrated will be on these new devices, but it seems like it could form a good part of the phone, perhaps with the contact list being integrated from Facebook.
