Here Comes the Facebook Phone

March 29th, 2013 - 1:20 pm

Would you buy a smartphone designed and sold by Facebook? Because it’s coming:

Facebook just invited press to an event at its headquarters on April 4th to “Come See Our New Home On Android”. Sources tell us it will be a modified version of the Android operating system with deep native Facebook functionality on the homescreen that may live on an HTC handset. The evidence aligns to say this is the Facebook Phone announcement people have been speculating about for years.

One source recently told us to be on the look out for a Facebook mobile press event in early April where the social network would reveal an altered Android OS running on HTC. It’s said not to be a full-on rewrite of Android, but rather a “flavor” that will have all sorts of extra Facebook functionality built in.

I’m worried that extra functionality is nothing but Farmville invites.

It will have a GPS tracking feature that you can't turn off.

Oh, and when you get too close to another one, it will report back to Facebook that you know each other and make friend requests.

The Mic will be live all the time, and speech recognition will post automatic updates to your page without your knowledge.

Google glasses may turn out to be an exception, but to date, has any software company successfully produced hardware? I can't think of any, yet they keep trying.

Why the hell would people want to be tracked by an evil corporation 24/7 is beyond my imaginations.

I think I'd rather watch the SNL writer Michael O'Donoghue do his impression of the Morman Tabernacle Choir having needles stabbed in their eyes.

Just no. Although, my mom will be first in the midnight launch line if there's a mobile device that allows her to play her Facebook Zoo World game.
