On Tuesday, Facebook will be holding a press conference for what many believe will be the announcement of the “Facebook Phone”. With all this speculation, one can create any buzz around a potential release and expect a jump in company stock prices, or is that just me speculating now? So what’s Facebook up to?
LEAVE YOUR THOUGHTS BELOW – WHAT DO YOU THINK FACEBOOK IS GOING TO ANNOUNCE?
TechCrunch has been sort of reporting about this but all they can say is that Facebook has been denying any and all things mobile. In the recent article by TechCrunch columnist MG Siegler, he wrote:
“I know, I know. The Facebook Phone is so often rumored that it’s reaching “Apple Tablet” or “Apple Phone” levels at this point. And while those devices did eventually manifest themselves, the Facebook Phone not only has not, but it has been directly denied by everyone at Facebook — including Mark Zuckerberg himself — several times.”
So why are so many people hinting at a phone release by Facebook? Would Facebook really have a secret lair somewhere in the rockies where they’ve been building a new phone, or OS? We’ll leave this one to Tuesday.
Do we really need another phone on the market? How would this one be different than the rest? Or are we about to see the number of mobile brands jump over the next ten years to rival the number of car brands out there?
