This is where MICROSOFT could flex some shareholder muscle and 'force' FB to make it a Windows Phone. Thats the only thing that can really lift up Windows Phone's flat sales. And WP7 already has deeper Facebook integration than the other operating systems.

There are a trillion avenues that they can take rather than coming up with uninspiring idea of FB phone !! Duh !!
Somewhere they also have an obligation to shareholders after the botched IPO job!!
They can focus on making good LCD panels for example....remember that success comes after making a conscious effort to usher new things to masses.....PEOPLE make or break a brand!! So if you are bringing a plate of same chips to the table.....PASS!!!

The kindle fire had a lot to offer when it came to content

Facebook should work over that first

A 5-8 megapixel camera with xenon flash and hd video recording is a must (enough of those LED bugs)

then Facebook should make a triangular phone as Apple patented the typical phone shape and would definitely whine if one more big company would use that shape.

What do you think about the manufacturer or the specs? How about the camera? Do you think it's any good? That might be important to post all those pics to Facebook. How about the software it's running? Any drawbacks? I'm saying give it a chance. Stranger things have succeeded. However, you're instantly attacking it before it has even left the drawing board. Tell us all why you hate it so much.
