Not letting you install apps like tweeter in the smartphone market?
Good luck competiting with the rest of the smartphones that way.
I can only see 1 way for a FB to work;
Being a cheap, "blondy" phone with full qwerty that supports more FB functions than the average smartphone, because the hardware will simply be optimized for such use.
So that will keep the costs low and the margain of profit will be mostly decided from the brand name.
And the possible users wont have any demands from their phone, other than just logging on FB, do what they do home and also take calls and SMSs...
But kind of too late IMHO, now every teen cheerleader is already accustomed with a fully fldged smartphone and they wont accept such a compromise, unless the price really is tempting...

Its almost a Google phone with Android Os made by Google, I actually thought Google would fail when I heard about the making of Android, and now its major rival against apple OS, so you never know, Facebook could pull it off
When you are rich, you will always find way for making more money. Unlike us hardly can afford one phone and bagging everyone else.

Haven't they already tried it with the INQ phone. That was a complete flop what makes them think they will do any better next time.

FB doesn't have much of a choice at this point. If it won't go mobile then it deserves its plummeting IPO. A lot can be achieved by an Internet company but... We all have seen those Internet wonders before... After a while the dilemma rises - what's next: 1. milk it until it becomes irrelevant and dies, 2. move into software/hardware sector and thrive. The decision made determines whether the company has future or not. Google made that transition in its time committing to android and with the recent purchase of motorola mobility. The situation is more or less similar for FB. They have to advance, period. Mobile market is the most lucrative hightech market nowadays. So, it is not even a choice it's necessity. I do think that grabbing WEB OS (now open source) renaming and reformatting it to suite FB agenda is a better choice than Android, considering the overall competition Gooogle is trying to impose on FB in social networking.
How about a line of McDonalds phones?..

Everyone has a Google phone(Android) so why not a Facephone but it will be a flop if it has those restrictions, it will be cool to have a phone with a Facebook logo at the back, but again I can just buy a sticker lol
