How long have we been talking about this? It seems like ages, but now there’s more fuel to add to the fire. Bloomberg reports that Facebook and HTC are working on a smartphone to be released mid-2013.
Anonymous sources within HTC stated that the launch was originally scheduled for this year, but it was delayed because other projects had priority in the company. As with iOS, the social network will be deeply embedded in the Android smartphone from HTC.
In addition, it was also mentioned that a few ex-Apple employees are now on Facebook on the payroll and working on their own Facebook OS. Since HTC appears to be openly cooperating with Facebook, it seems likely that if there is a Facebook smartphone, it will be an android device.
