Gadzooks! Is The Facebook phone a-coming?

28 May 2012

Bitterwallet - Facebook logo Anyone who has used Facebook’s phone app will know that it is, on the whole, an unworkable piece of shite. With that in mind, what the hell will a Facebook-branded smartphone be like? The mind boggles.

It’s been mooted in the past and then said to have been abandoned, bu the word on ‘the street’ at the moment is that the phone is in development and could be with us by next year.

The Mark Zuckerberg-led army are believed to have recruited boffins that have worked on the iPhone and similar high-flying project, with one Facebook employee saying that Zuckerberg is “worried that if he doesn't create a mobile phone in the near future... Facebook will simply become an app on other mobile platforms”.

The only official word from Facebook itself was this enigmatic statement: “Our mobile strategy is simple: we think every mobile device is better if it is deeply social. We're working across the entire mobile industry; with operators, hardware manufacturers, OS providers, and application developers to bring powerful social experiences to more people around the world.”

So – a Facebook phone. Would YOU be seen dead or alive with one?

    Why dont they just work on the facebook app not eating up half my CPU when I am not even using it. Just stop doing anything until you solve that facebook, please.
  • Idi A.

    Oh dear, the last struggling breath of a dying company.

    At least iphone users will finally have someone to laugh at.

    This is a good thing. If it means the fucking twats are on facebook updating their status to on a train rather than shouting "I'm on a train, yes, a train, it's amazing, I'm on a train and I'm on the phone. The train is not actually going where I wanted to because I was too busy on my phone to check I got on the right one, but ... I'm on a train and I just had to tell someone. Yes, it's a great ..... TUNNEL".

    The facebook phone?! AWESOME! (BW regulars will know how much I admire people with iPhones and those that use facebook) Looks like you will soon be able to phone all of those 674 'friends' to actually tell them about that poxy concert you went to last night to make it look you have a life.

    @Dick, buy a mobile jammer, perfect for getting rid of loud annoying twats who insist on using their phones on the train (allegedly, of course I don't own one as they're not legal and that would be naughty). I certainly wouldn't be able to point you in the direction of anywhere you could buy one, Deal *cough* Extreme *cough* but I'm sure if you ask around you'll find out where they're available.
  • Mike H.
    Deal Extreme Bob, they've got loads of phone jammers there, bad cough by the way dude.

    Didn't HTC create a stupid Facebook phone? The HTC ChaCha or something another?

    @Marky Mark Surely that's the other way round? Blackberrys have Flash.
  • Raggedy
    @Marky Mark I do apologise. I'm not entering into the spirit of this site. My comment should have read: Surely that’s the other way round? Blackberrys have Flash, you iphone wielding cunt. :-)

    If it is over priced for what you get, has the right badge & is nice and shiny, people will buy it, even if you can't actually use it to make calls. This has already been proven. Zuckerberg seems to know his market, and has the means to reach them. The idiots will once again be sold what they deserve. I pity them and their sad lives. If only they had some (real live) friends.
  • Wongaporkpies
    Technical fault. My Facebook phone has frozen. Solution. POKE IT !!!
  • Tony T.
    People still use facebook? Looks like Suckerburger has realised there is more financial potential in sellin a dead rat.
  • Tony T.
    Whaen I say sellin I clearly meant sellin' you spastic cretins.
  • Tony T.
    And when I say whaen I clearly meant when... Ahem.
