Facebook Planning to Release Facebook Phone by 2013; Hiring iPhone Engineers
The New York Times reports that Facebook is planning to release a smartphone by 2013 and has hired former Apple employees who have worked on the iPhone and iPad.
This is not the first time we're hearing rumors of a Facebook phone. Back in November 2011, a rumor claimed that the Facebook Phone existed and is codenamed "buffy". Facebook had reportedly partnered with HTC to build these phones, which would be running a custom version of Android.
