Facebook - King of Social Networks
Facebook is the undisputed ruler of the social networks. After MySpace and Orkut, there isn't any other network to challenge facebook's dominance. Even Google+ could not make inroads into facebook's dominance. It has already surpassed Google to become the place where users spend their maximum time online. Nearly a billion people around the world rely on Facebook to share photos, status updates, check-ins, and just stay connected with their networks of friends and family.
Need to go for Hardware Manufacturing
So why does facebook needs to go into hardware manufaturing when it is doing so well in software and apps market. It is because of two reasons-
- Facebook is under fire over its share price plunge after a highly hyped IPO and is under serious pressure to come up with something new
- Facebook is struggling to make money out of its growing mobile audience and is worried that if it doesn't create a mobile phone in the near future, then Facebook will simply become an app on other mobile platforms.
Facebook phone- Work in Progress
The company has already hired more than half a dozen former Apple software and hardware engineers who worked on iPhone, and one who worked on iPad. However, this is not the first attempt by the company at smartphone market. In 2010 a project was started but was soon scrapped when the firm realised the difficulty of making a new platform. Another effort, in cooperation with the Taiwanese smartphone firm HTC and codenamed "Buffy", is still under development. With its new, hand-picked smartphone engineers, Facebook is now leaving nothing behind by expanding the group working on Buffy, and exploring other smartphone projects too, creating a team of seasoned hardware engineers who have built the devices before".
Configurations of Facebook Phone
Facebook's Phone is already been touted as the Iphone killer. Looking very much like a cross between an iPhone and a Nokia Lumia 900, Facebook concept phones are sleek, thin, and sexy. There is no words on configurations of the phone, but it will include a 4.2-inch display and an eight-megapixel camera on the back. The Facebook smartphone is scheduled for release by next year. So how will it look like? what will be radically different? Well its still early and facebook is guarding the information quite secretly but whatever the case may be, It will be quite exciting to see the first Facebook phone when it’s released next year.
As a parting thought would you buy a Facebook phone if and when it launched ?
