Facebook desmiente que esté desarrollando un móvil

Durante el día de ayer estuve leyendo en Twitter que Facebook estaba inmersa en el desarrollo de un nuevo telefono móvil de ellos basado en AndroidOS. Cuando lo leí pensé en el tremendo error que estaban a punto de cometer, sigue pensado que “Zapatero a tus zapatos”.

Pues bien, según he podido leer en una declaración de Jaime Schopflin a Mashable la noticia es totalmente falsa. Según el comunicado Facebook no pretende entrar en el negocio de los teléfonos móviles. Están contentos con el sector donde se mueven, desarrollando de SDK para integrar su red social en teléfonos de la forma más ligera posible.

Os dejo las palabras textuales:

???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.???
