At MWC, HTC has revealed two new phones designed with deep integration with Facebook, joining the INQ Cloud series of devices revealed last week. Now, Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, announced during MWC that consumers should expect "dozens" more phones like what we've seen from HTC and INQ.
The rumors surrounding the existence of a Facebook phone have been around for a long while and Facebook has done a lot to squash the rumors that they were working on their own Facebook phone, but instead, working with manufacturers to create a better Facebook experience on several handsets.
With the reveal of the two new phones from HTC and the two phones from INQ, it seems that while Facebook themselves aren't designing the phones, the fact that "dozens" of Facebook integrated phones (which Facebook possibly and probably had input in) will come out this year indicates that Facebook thought the idea of designing their own phone was not thinking big enough.
They wanted their own mini-version of the choices/options in a phone that comes with the Android ecosystem, and it looks like they are going to get it. Check out the Engadget article about the two new phones from HTC here.
