You’ll likely remember a few months ago when the rumors started flying about a Facebook phone. Well, churn up the old mill again because it looks like we might have stumbled onto the Facebook Phone once more. This time, INQ Mobile appears to be making an Android-based device that includes a homescreen with “mulitple entry points to different Facebook functions”. Beyond that, though, it will have a widget that displays “a feed of status updates, albums, videos and photos”.
So is it being ordered by Facebook? Not likely. Nevertheless, it’s still an interesting twist on mobile marketing toward the Facebook generation. Let’s face it, many of us have friends or our own kids who would be all over a Facebook phone if it ever hits the market.
