Seems like a cool deal.

Its not about facebook developing software for a phone, Its just that one gets to say that he has a facebook phone i.e. with a little bit of twist in the customization of the software so that there are more of pre installed facebook apps. some of them might even be exclusively for this phone. Besides, the specifications with an Adreno 305 look real impressive to me (Processor being a dual core should not be a worry). If I was going high end, I would go for it.

Good idea, but not sure it will be useful. A phone should be more than just Facebook.

That's a total crazy idea.FB is nothing but a social networking site.Why does a total phone to be named after FB?Even Google has no phone itself,rather it is running on Android,owned by Google.At present FB is deeply integrated to all OS sufficiently.Some people are really sick..

This is quite possible, because HTC produced a phone with the Facebook button before(HTC Salsa), so this may be a bigger step towards Facebook

Like seriously, why would you need a facebook phone, what's wrong with just the app.... if your life has become dependant on facebook and you buy this phone cause of that feature, you should really start questioning your life
