HTC Salsa and ChaCha are considered not to be deeply-integrated Facebook phones. So rumors spread that, Facebook is now working with HTC and evolved out a phone that has a much deeper integration with the social network than any previous ‘Facebook phone’. According to some source it will take some 12 to 18 months probably to make this phone come to your reach. Codenamed ‘Buffy’, the phone is a qualified version of Google’s Android. HTC is known for modifying Android on its phones with its HTC Sense interface. Facebook is adopting a similar strategy like both Amazon and Barnes & Noble have created tablets with highly customized versions of the Android.
With the aid of HTML5, part of the package would be serving up Facebook apps. This would allow you to play games like Farmville and Poker directly from the Facebook app. Buffy will be far from the first Facebook phone. Most of the developers offer their apps as separate downloads from Facebook. This prevents them from tapping into active Facebook users and thereby Facebook is made to cut off from potential revenues.
Buffy, comes to bridge the gap presumably.Facebook released an app designed specifically for the iPad in October.It is said that the professionals who serve both HTC and Facebook have denied all the rumours that were popping up and have expressly reported that the so called business strategy adopted, makes every mobile device simple, easy to operate. Every device gets to be more deeply social. They have been continuously working on it with operators, hardware manufacturers, OS providers, and application developers for to bring out varied experiences round the world.
Now comes the big question – is it the right move? The collaborative process that engaged Facebook, a massive base for mobile users, is much like a never ending war among mobile platforms with Google, Apple and others that have been craving for consumers’ tastes and preferences. The smartphones are subjected to a wide range of usage as of now so, it makes absolute sense for Facebook as it wants more things within its perview.
Do you want Buffy ? Like if you need one !
