It has not mentioned what kind of special access will be offered by this Facebook phone. But it seems, Buffy would have expected a deeper integeration features with the Facebook service.
Facebook itself still has not given the official statement about the appearance of Buffy. But facebook does not dismiss that the mobile industry is one of their next target.
“Our strategy in the mobile business is actually simple. We think that every device will be better when he is more ‘social’. And we were trying to wade through the entire mobile industry,” said Facebook spokesman about Facebook phone, quoted by All Things D.
“Many parties, such as operators, hardware vendors, makers of the OS, and application developers to bring social networking experience to more people around the world,” he continued.
