FROM FACEBOOK TO THE “FACEPHONE”?
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.
