Facebook Phone in the Works

Facebook is making a “Facebook phone” and it’s codenamed “Buffy”.  This is quite a surprise because Mark Zuckerberg et. al do not have an OS they can call their own. Moreover, Facebook phones are already in the market and they don’t seem to be doing great.  But if there’s one entity that has the real capability of spearheading a Facebook phone project, it should be Facebook itself.

But what’s more surprising really, is that Facebook will be making the phone on the Android platform.  Yes, Mark Zuckerberg will be using something owned by its rival Google to run its phone.  This is not really bad since Android is a very capable OS and is in fact gaining popularity.  It’s also free to use.

Reports say Facebook will be tapping the services of HTC for the phones hardware.  HTC is a solid choice since the company has already dipped its hands in the Facebook phone game with the HTC ChaCha and Salsa.  The Facebook phone will reportedly run a tweaked Android OS and will support HTML5 apps.
