    Rated 4.8/5 stars (76 votes cast)

    I think people love rumors. Facebook as a social network would probably benefit more by staying out of the ensuing battle between RIM, Apple, Google, Nokia and Microsoft. What they probably want to do is get Facebook "client" on every possible platform

    Competition with these folks will not be in Facebook's favor as some might drop or discourage the use of Facebook on their phones.

    Additionally, Facebook is a service company, not hardware. They have their fingers in software development but I haven't seen anything hardware from them.

    To sum up, I doubt Facebook are heading into that highly fragmented market. They might strike some deals with manufacturers to make Facebook "Branded" phones or even possibly Facebook "Certified" phones which I'm sure manufacturers would love to have. They might even provide it for a license fee in exchange for a little logo (like those you see for Windows7 compatible and what not). But I highly doubt this story is more than a rumor.

    Now would Facebook venture into unify communications? I say, ABSOLUTELY, in fact, I predict this is their next big evolutionary step. Tie in social media with real-time, anytime, anywhere, presence, IM, email, voice-mail, audio, hi-fi video and location awareness. That ties in pretty well with Facebook's business model and drives even more value to their customers.

    Expect Facebook to also compete with Email solutions, long distance carriers, MMS/SMS providers, IM/chat/conferencing providers, also expect them to carve out a huge portion of that market.

    ... I say within the next year or two.
