Report: Facebook Developing Mobile OS
Facebook is working on a company-branded smartphone, TechCrunch.com reported Sunday. But the social network giant, by day's end, had denied that a specific Facebook phone was on the way.
TechCrunch's Michael Arrington reported, citing "a source who has knowledge of the project," that Facebook would build the phone's software while hiring an unnamed third party to build the software.
However, a Facebook spokeswoman told CNET Sunday that Facebook "is not building a phone, but... integrating deeply into existing platforms and operating systems." The spokeswoman added that the executives mentioned by name in the TechCrunch report are in fact working on such integration.
