Love being online on social networks? Can’t get enough of Facebook on your smartphone app? There might be something bigger in store for you! If rumors are to be believed, Facebook is treading down the path taken by Google and is in the process of developing an indigenous smartphone. With a burgeoning user base on the social networking site, Facebook now wants to explore and leverage the immense potential of the mobile internet space. The social networking giant’s penetration into the netizen user base has just about begun to qualify as normal, when this piece of news about the launch of a Facebook smartphone has sent ripples across the entire social networking circle. Facebook application developers must be rubbing their hands together in glee, thinking of scores of app development opportunities that are sure to come their way.
Preparations are in full swing as it is being said that a large number of former Apple employees who had hands-on experience in designing the software and hardware for the path-breaking iPhone have been recruited by Facebook. If a former Apple engineer is to be believed, his rendezvous with Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg led to a steady stream of questions about what makes a smartphone, or more importantly the iPhone tick. It might be reason enough to believe that with the growing trend of dedicated mobile devices being launched by software development giants, if Facebook does not join the bandwagon, it could be relegated to being just an app for the smartphone.
Facebook were non-committal about their approach, but did not deny this foray into mobile device development too. In a statement issued to AFP, they said “Our mobile strategy is simple: we think every mobile device is better if it is deeply social.” Considering it works with some of the leading operators, hardware manufacturers, application developers and OS providers, Facebook is sure to deliver a big surprise in the near future.
