HTC To Unveil Two Facebook Phones At MWC?
Facebook is growing and now the leaders of the social-networking website want to build a phone. It’s not the first time we’ve heard rumors of a Facebook phone, but it’s the first time actual details of it are released by a tipster.
One of the BGR ninjas who leaked the details, claim that people working at this project are not calling it the Facebook phone, probably because it will fall into a new category of devices. The media-called Facebook phone will have a built-in GPS which that will be always on. A location-aware service will track you everywhere you go and if you will be near a store, then it will immediately notify you that there are some deals available.
The location-aware Facebook phone will also support Facebook Places and it will automatically check-in and share your current location with your FB buddies. The source says that the Facebook phone will not have built-in storage as everything will be stored in the cloud – media, contacts, data, videos, and basically everything you can store on a device.
Like most portable devices nowadays, it will have a camera, though like said, the pictures and videos will be stored in the cloud and in the same time, automatically uploaded to your Facebook account. The Facebook phone will support a ticker-like notification service which will send all your messages and FB notifications into a global inbox.
The rumors regarding the Facebook don’t end here as City A.M is reporting that HTC is going to release two Facebook phones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. So HTC is working closely with Facebook on two devices, and that’s not surprising at all considering the fact that HTC was the first to release an Android phone and the first to release a Google phone, so why won’t it be the first to release a Facebook phone?
There isn’t a long wait until the Mobile World Congress when we will see two HTC Facebook phones. Anybody else excited?
