Rumors are surfacing the web about Facebook launching it’s own smartphone by 2013.
New York Times reports that Facebook is seeking engineers to work on building hardware for a smartphone. The probable launch period will be around 2013, so you’ll have to wait if you are hoping to get one. According to the sources close to the matter, this is Facebook‘s third attempt to make an entry in the hardware business by launching its own smartphone.
The smartphone kingdom is currently ruled by market leaders such as Android and iOS, with Windows Phone desperately trying to catch up. It will surely be a tough job for Facebook to make it’s smartphone known if it does releases. Will you buy a Facebook smartphone if Facebook releases one in 2013?
