Facebook denies plans to make its own mobile phone

– The social network Facebook stated it is looking for more presence in the mobile phone market, but denied a report that appeared on the web stating it had plans to build its own cell phone.

Facebook has over 500 million users worldwide and has already several applications for mobile phones that are linked to the company’s website. But James Schopflin, a company spokesman, said it is not a phone that is being manufactured. “Facebook’s projects today include deeper integration with manufacturers,” he added.

‘Our opinion is that almost all experiences would be better if they were social, so deeply integrating with existing platforms and their operating systems is a great way of making this happen’ Schopflin said in a statement.

A report published on Sunday on TechCrunch.com informed that an inside source revealed a project in which Facebook is developing secret phone software and working with another company building the hardware.

Techcrunch.com stated that Facebook wants a deeper integration between the contact list and the basic functions in a mobile phone, something that can only be done through the operating system that controls each phone.

Facebook’s negative comes after Google Inc last year also dismissed media reports about it planning to build a cell phone, and later it launched the Nexus One smart-phone.

  1. Absolutely this is fantastic, I discovered a blog post just this morning regarding Mister Zuckerberg. With the forthcoming release of the motion picture, “The Social Experiment”, several pundits are declaring that Facebook is mainly setting up this valuable donation as a kind of image repair service. I absolutely am not concerned with what his motivations really are. Something great should come of it. Perhaps the people criticizing the New Jersey school system may even be considered a bit off from my standpoint. The increased dollars are likely to help out in uplifting the school system. No question about the idea.

  2. Seriously this is definitely terrific, I checked out a blog actually today regarding Mark. Along with the coming launch of the documentary, “The Social Experiment”, a lot of people today are suggesting that Mark Z. is merely setting up this amazing monetary gift as a kind of image repair. I really am unconcerned with what the man’s motives may be. Some thing very good should come from this. The people demeaning the New Jersey school system may even be considered a bit off from my position. More dollars are likely to assist in uplifting the educational system. No doubting about it.
