One more thing at the Facebook camp is a rumored Facebook Phone. On fears of the influence of iPhone and Android in the mobile arena, it is told that Facebook is building its own mobile operating system.
Techcrunch linked Facebook’s ‘web based operating system’, Parakey, that it acquired back in 2007 and never saw the final release. I would certainly love the Facebook phone to search and dial the ‘friend’s name’ instead of the traditional phone numbers.
In another report, Facebook might be using Google’s open-source Android operating system for its phone. Whatever may be the case, Facebook’s version will surely try to be ‘more social’.
A flash-back on what a Facebook mobile whiz, Joe Hewitt, had to say on the issues of Android and iPhone is a good read for sure. (Attached image is a mock-up)
