Details on What the Facebook Phone Might Include

Jan 26 2011 - 2:40pm

Apparently, Sony PlayStation isn't the only brand getting a phone. According to reports, Facebook will be launching two branded devices [1] next month. While I doubt that the phone itself will resemble the social network on the outside, if anyone is going to succeed at pulling off a socially-connected device, it would be Facebook. Manufactured by HTC, the Facebook phone is said to be coming with the following features [2]:

  • Coupon alerts in your current location
  • Automatic check-ins
  • Cloud-based storage
  • Mass message hub that serves as an inbox for email, texts, ect.
  • I can definitely see Facebook's features being integrated into a smartphone, especially with its new messaging system [3] and Facebook Places [4]. But we've already seen one socially-focused device [5] bite the dust — will this one survive?
