    I'm in the camp that Facebook should make a functional App first :P

    I hate to ever say never but it would never be successful...and I think HTC agrees.

    It seems like it would be a good idea to diversify, but I have no interest in a 'facebook phone'. The HTC Facebook phone was cool only because it was stock Android on a cheap HTC. Haha

    Unfortunately for HTC, that had to be the biggest flop of all smartphones from any platform. I don't recall anything else being discounted and EOL'd so quickly.

    I don't think Facebook truly understands the state of their service. Today's youth simply forego's Facebook in favor of Instagram, Vine, Snapchat, etc. Otherwise you've got the middle aged folks who play the Facebook games, and everyone else is just there as an only means of communication with at least one person they don't want to lose contact with. The Facebook phone thing would such a disaster.

    I think the government would like it. Facebook already has permission to rule your life because you hit accept on the terms and conditions lol

    If a Facebook phone ends up looking like an Android phone, then I don't see the point of that, really. I would rather they spruce up their native apps a little more, as they haven't even accomplished that yet. Keep it simple, Facebook and don't bite more than what you can chew.

    Probably going to close my account by the end of the year so I would prefer an iphone6 instead of a fb phone

    Its funny reading this old thread, I actually ONLY use Facebook to sync my games like Candy Crush, Pet Rescue, etc. that can be synced with Facebook. Other than that I don't actually bother reading or staying connected. For me the social aspect is covered by the forums I am on.

    I think Facebook for companies as advanced IM communication platform might be their first priority. A Facebook phone might be something in regions where FB wants people to be connected and where the connections are slower. I canít remember but I think there was an article on WSJ about it a few days ago.

    Hopefully not.

    But hey, Pepsi has their own phone now so I wouldn't even be surprised.
