Could this afternoon really bring a conclusion to the years of whispers, rumors, and speculation about a Facebook phone? It certainly looks that way. All signs point to an HTC phone that devotes much of its homescreen to keeping up with the Joneses, as well as all of your other Facebook friends. It also appears that hardware like the phone’s camera could be directly linked to a user’s Facebook page. If you’re tired of pressing multiple buttons to upload a photo to Facebook or let your friends know where you’re eating dinner, this could very well be the phone for you. Keep reading to learn more about what we think we know about the phone so far and watch the live stream with us starting at 12:50 PM EST.
Early reports indicate that rather than wading fully into the hardware market, Facebook has produced software that will initially be available on an HTC phone that we’ll likely see today, but can also be installed on a wide variety of Android phones. So the long-awaited Facebook phone could be the one you’re holding in your hands right now, just as long as the one you’re holding in your hands isn’t an iPhone.
Why keep speculating, though? After all, Facebook is going to let you know exactly what’s up with the phone later this afternoon — all you’ll have to do is hang out right here and watch the live stream with us.
