+ - Facebook Smartphone a Dumb Idea->

Submitted by beaverdownunder
beaverdownunder (1822050) writes "Farhad Manjoo examines Facebook's rumoured entry into the smartphone market, concluding, "So what would be the point in using the Facebook phone? Well, remember, it will be cheap. But so are lots of Android phones. If Facebook makes a phone, then, the device will necessarily spark a battle for the low end of the phone market, with each company offering ever-cheaper devices in the hopes of cashing in on some future advertising bonanza. If you're looking for a cheap, ad-heavy phone based on a dubious business model, you should rejoice. Otherwise, try to stifle your yawns.""
