ALL THINGS DIGITAL is running a series of articles regarding the long rumored FACEBOOK PHONE. In their most recent article, they write,"After years of considering how to best get into the phone business, FACEBOOK has tapped Taiwanese cellphone maker HTC to build a smartphone that has the social network integrated at the core of its being. Code-named 'BUFFY,' after the television vampire slayer, the phone is planned to run on a modified version of ANDROID that FACEBOOK has tweaked heavily to deeply integrate its services, as well as to support HTML5 as a platform for applications, according to sources familiar with the project."
Don't look for the phone to be on shelves soon, as the report says the wait could be as long as 12 to 18 months.
