HTC to unveil Facebook phones?

facebookWith Mobile World Congress on the horizon, speculation is building that HTC are to announce two Facebook branded phones in Barcelona in just a few weeks time. Both City A.M. and BGR believe that these phones will features tight Facebook integration such as having status updates and messages pushed to the homescreen, as well as calling and emailing from their Facebook page. Evidence is a bit patchy, with claims that the iPhone app developer is working on it and a focus group was held regarding  a Facebook centric phone.

Facebook have responded by totally dismissing the rumours, saying it’s simply manufacturers tying Facebook deeper into their phones. So although we may not see a Facebook branded phone, the chances are that deep Facebook support will become a headlining feature on new and upcoming devices. WP7 and HTC’s Sense both have heavy Facebook integration already, so wouldn’t a Facebook phone be the next logical step? Considering there are over half a billion active users, a Facebook phone should go down a treat.
