      Dude, I was going to ask the same thing. Who really cares if they make one? It’s just going to be another over priced piece of junk like all the rest.

      Now IF they were going to make a smart phone without a contract and charge a reasonable monthly fee, and it worked most of the time, then that would be something to talk about.

      facebook phone -> meh!

    Considering the source of this ‘news’ is from TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington, there is a 50/50 chance it’s complete bullsh*t.

    They’ve already confirmed with engadget that they are not making a phone.

    I can’t see the benefit to Facebook at all. I don’t see anyone wanting a phone that’s main purpose is Facebook. Besides the best FB experience is still online. The mobile version still has a long way to go.
