FROM FACE­BOOK TO THE “FACEPHONE”?

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - BIT RATE -

What’s bet­ter than a phone with a Face­book App? A Face­book Phone. There are ru­mours that Tai­wanese phone maker HTC has been tasked by the so­cial net­work­ing site to build a phone, co­de­named Buffy, that is geared to in­te­grate the com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vice with Face­book. Ap­par­ently, Buffy will run on a tweaked ver­sion of Android and will sup­port HTML5 as ap­pli­ca­tion plat­form. Ob­vi­ously it is too early for any dis­cus­sion on its fea­tures, de­sign­ing or its re­lease date. For the mil­lions who can’t do with­out their daily dose of FB, this phone will be a god­send. But there’s a pe­riod of wait­ing in­volved, rather like the time be­tween a friend re­quest be­ing sent and the ar­rival of the con­fir­ma­tion.
