It's been awhile since we've heard anything about a dedicated Facebook handset, and some of these handsets, such as the HTC Salsa
and Motorola MotoKey Social, have already been launched.
These handsets, including the HTC ChaCha
, have Facebook integration and the dedicated Facebook buttons, but the handset that is in the talks now, is supposedly be Facebook's first own-branded handset.
The Facebook phone is said to be manufactured by HTC, according to DigiTimes and is said to launch in Quarter 3 of this year. It should be and Android phone, but the Android version is still yet unknown but will have a "platform exclusive to Facebook to enable and integrate all functions available on the social networking site."
