Yesterday, TechCrunch, technology site, ran a story pointing-out that Facebook was developing, through a third party, mobile phone software. TechCrunch was going on information from a “source with knowledge of the project.”
“Specifically, Facebook wants to integrate deeply into the contacts list and other core functions of the phone. It can only do that if it controls the operating system,” explained Michael Arrington, TechCrunch’s editor.
Facebook refused to admit it’s making a smart-phone, but Facebook did receive input from hardware manufacturers and carriers this summer.
Facebook issued a long denial. According to reports, the idea is in the early stages and Facebook has not determined if they want to proceed.
