The Facebook Phone Is Coming Tuesday, TechCrunch Is Sort Of Reporting

The Facebook Phone Is Coming Tuesday, TechCrunch Is Sort Of Reporting

facebook phone 2
Facebook is holding a press event at its headquarters on Tuesday.
The company hasn't said what it's announcing.
TechCrunch columnist MG Siegler says Facebook will finally announce a "Facebook phone."
Or, at least, Siegler kind of says that.
He writes:
Multiple sources have told us that they expect some sort of Facebook Phone to be on display on Tuesday.
Now for the caveats (and they’re important). It’s not entirely clear if this will be an actual piece of Facebook branded hardware or if they will simply use hardware from a phone maker to show off some sort of new Facebook OS for mobile. That is to say, it could very well be that the “Facebook Phone” is more about a Facebook OS running on a phone (or a few phones).
But then he writes:
Complicating matters is all the chatter that Facebook has both publicly and privately told partners such as Google and Apple that they had no intention to build their own phones. Again, maybe it’s semantics. Or maybe Facebook simply changed their minds. Or maybe this phone/OS isn’t meant to compete head-on with the iPhone and the Android phones that Google focuses on. Perhaps this is meant solely for emerging markets.
Then Siegler quotes something Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said at a TechCrunch event in September:
"It’s a juicy thing to say we’re building a phone, which is why people want to write about it. But it’s so clearly the wrong strategy for us."
Finally, Siegler nearly walks back the entire thing:
Facebook is fairly good at keeping things close to the vest these days. And the truth is that there are a number of things the company could announce on Tuesday. But speculation that is something smaller, like a new app, doesn’t jibe with the multiple sources telling us this is going to be “a big deal."
So there you have it. Facebook will reveal a phone on Tuesday. Or maybe it won't.

Facebook Phone To Be Announced On January 15


Facebook Phone To Be Announced On January 15

facebook phoneUnited States: Worlds most popular community engine is now hosting two press conferences the one in his headquarter and second one in London. Nothing is till known what is going to be announced and launched but critics are sure that it will be a big thing as the company never put such events unusually and it will definitely be not about new applications or about some improvements.
According to the Techcrunch sources not revealed it will be something like mythical facebook phone. The idea of facebook phone has been in discussions for past few years. The whole scenario can  be well understood in one of Zuckerberg views in admitting that they not only want to built applications for the people but want to integrated with the systems and want to develop an ecosystem where applications can be built n top of facebook. Besides being working on facebook phone from November 2011, facebook has also collaborated with HTC for building smart phone that would work with customized version of android.This can also be clear with Zuckerberg statement that they had start hiring new engineering from apple and especially having experience of phone’s hardware.
Facebook has also came up with new offerings besides from just messaging to camera application ,application stores and especially the facebook zero, the service which provide free signup from phone. Facebook is also in a try to engage more and more users by giving attractive packages for specified regions and in accordance with taste of people.Reportadly, facebook would go head first to compete with Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android smartphones in developed markets like North America and Europe and then move toward Asia especially India where millions of people start their day by giving morning status. Undoubtedly, these are the users that let it grow
and urge for new applications .After Facebook phone, the company will try for the building of search engine that could beat Google. Having said that we can undoubtedly revealed that there will be a launch of Facebook mobile on Tuesday.
