Sebbene poc’anzi sia stato detto Facebook sta costruendo un movile, mi rincresce dover smentire la notizia, Facebook non sta costruendo un telefono, o così dicono loro.

La bufala era nata sul blog e poi aveva avuto il suo seguito su Twitter; si diceva appunto che Facebook stava costruendo un telefono movile, una notizia totalmente infondata. Qui potete vedere la smentita da parte di Facebook.

Ecco le parole di Jaime Schopflin:

“The story, which originated in Techcrunch, is not accurate. Facebook is not building a phone. Our approach has always been to make phones and apps more social. Current projects include include everything from an HTML5 version of the site to apps on major platforms to full Connect support with SDKs to deeper integrations with some manufacturers. Our view is that almost all experiences would be better if they were social, so integrating deeply into existing platforms and operating systems is a good way to enable this. For an example, check out Connect for iPhone and the integration we have with contact syncing through our iPhone app. Another example is the INQ1 phone with Facebook integration (the first so-called ‘Facebook Phone’). The people mentioned in the story are working on these projects. The bottom line is that whenever we work on a deep integration, people want to call it a ‘Facebook Phone’ because that’s such an attractive soundbite, but building phones is just not what we do.”
