Default Would You Buy A Facebook Phone?

Hello All

It has recently emerged about Facebook’s plans to launch a smart phone, with reports that the social networking site is working with handset maker INQ Mobile. They are planning to launch two Facebook smart phones in Europe in the first half of 2011

Would you consider buying a Facebook phone or is this a market that Facebook should stay out away from?

Regards

Jo

Me personally, no. I appreciate how easy and effective Facebook advertising can be, but don't use the site on a personal level.

Even if I did, given what I know about the other side of facebook, I would not want to provide them with any more usage statistics than I already do

There are a bunch of better choices out there as far as phones go IMHO, which all include facebook apps.

Facebook is going to create a sort of 'walking Facebool social network' - any time you are in touch with your friends from Facebook.

I wouldn't either, because it is not clear for me the opportunities of that smart phone, and I think it will be just for Facebook and its services. To my mind it will be a waste of money

For facebook we have PCs, laptops ...I don't see the point of having a special facebook button, are we really so addicted to social networking? O_o ...keep in mind that a phone is for talking since the moment it was invented.

Firstly I should see it and all the features and then I will decide to buy or not to buy.
