Before February 2004 no one have heard about the today’s most used social networking website, called Facebook. Within 8 years of its release, it has more than 955 million active users (till June 2012) where half of those are using it on mobile devices. Popularity do fetches responsibility, hence in today’s mobile world it has become necessary for Facebook to launch its own mobile phone. Otherwise it may end up becoming just another application to be downloaded and used by other devices.
From past two years there have been rumours in the air, that company is making its mobile phone. Rumours like “buffy” are just rumours or there is some flesh will be revealed by the time only. But designers have started suggesting some great designs for Facebook phones. What design Facebook will choose, will only be decided by the time, but there are some great designs released by the designers, which you can enjoy.
Out of these few are sleek, smart and have straight edges like the blue one released few days back by designer Tolga Tuncer. It is a notification/messaging and photo centric Facebook smartphone. It has dedicated buttons for Spotify and Instagram and got featured upon Yanko Designs website. There are more from Tolga which are sleek but long enough to put a question mark on keeping those in your pocket.
There are few more by Michal Bonikowshki which have more classic looks. One more by Bob Frecking is another good Facebook phone design.
Facebook will make its own with the help of HTC or acquire some company, will remain a prediction till some more time. But at the same time you never know, if one of these Facebook phone design concept may get selected and presented in future. Whatever will lie in future, will come upfront , but let us enjoy these good designs for the time being.
