Facebook denies building smartphone

Facebook has denied several reports that it is developing a smartphone, in a move which would up the competition between itself and major rivals, Google and Apple.

Reports yesterday alleged that Facebook is developing smartphone software, according to a “source with knowledge of the project”.

Yesterday TechCrunch, a technology specialist site, ran a saying the company was developing mobile phone software, citing a “source with knowledge of the project”.

Technology blog Techcrunch reported: “Facebook is building a mobile phone, says a source who has knowledge of the project. Or rather, they’re building the software for the phone and working with a third party to actually build the hardware. Which is exactly what Apple and everyone else does, too…”

The report added: “Specifically, Facebook wants to integrate deeply into the contacts list and other core functions of the phone. It can only do that if it controls the operating system.”

However, Facebook has denied the reports to several other sites, which followed up the story, telling CNET: “Facebook is not building a phone. Our view is that almost all experiences would be better if they were social, so integrating deeply into existing platforms and operating systems is a good way to enable this.”

Business Insider, using information from a “plugged-in Silicon Valley source”, has also claimed that Facebook is developing smartphone software and is using Google’s Android operating system as the basis.

Scott Ard, a writer for the site, said: “This means that Google is now essentially helping Facebook attempt to destroy Google!…The big picture is that Facebook wants to be more a mobile platform, not just a service or an app.”

Earlier this year Google entered the mobile phone market with the Nexus One. However, after disappointing sales, it stopped selling the model via its web-only store.

Last week, Facebook launched Places, a location-sharing tool, in the UK.

  6. I’ve continually notion it would be best to accept those unreservedly urinate sport shoes in the service of when I do outdoor sports such as canoeing and dragon boating. These certain sports shoes pander to to cut outside sports in unusual because of the examination thick consequential it is made of. When I match canoeing, I occupied to either put aside with my bare feet or slippers, but was till the end of time having problems with both. Being bare footed meant that I might away burn close to any debris that may share when I walk on the sand or in the not ring true while getting in or gone from of my canoe. When I wear slippers, sometimes it really gets in the road when my feet descend in the slime during common tide. It was when my slipper got stuck when I knew I had to organize an open-air sports fun shoes. I unmistakable to about of it as a cyclopean investment as it would agency gambler and cleaner feet. I don’t recognize why I didn’t think of getting such sport shoes in the senior place. I supposition it was because my impression of sport shoes was always since race, and not in requital for other outside sports.

    So when I maxim the FiveFingers Alfresco Sport Shoes – Black (Size 42) on DealtoWorld.com, I was really sure I wanted it. Not contrariwise can I wheedle a immense doublet of alfresco shoes in place of my not work sports, I can have a fivefingers a particular! Not unswerving why they standing by it fivefingers admitting that, since in point of fact the entertainment shoes is in the shape of your five toes. This enables a happier grip on where you step, which is especially massive for walking on the beach and skin-deep waters. I’ve forever been a devotee of “fivefingers” or toe socks, so this new alfresco shoes of repository is making me more fervent with my weekend out of doors sports endeavor.

    DealtoWorld.com sure made me a delighted camper this but, letting me own this colossal pair off of enjoyment shoes reasonable when I needed it. I’ve bought other lifestyle gadgets from DealtoWorld.com but this is the prime someday I bought divertissement shoes from any online shopping site. I till the end of time brown study it choicest to crack on any shoes, be it diversion shoes, leather shoes, slippers, etc. or else you won’t recognize whether it’s a great fit. Setting aside how, I couldn’t at the end of the day arouse a-ok deuterium oxide open-air sports divertissement shoes, so this rouse has decidedly enhanced my DealtoWorld.com shopping experience, or my online shopping as a whole.

    With it when I go due to the fact that my weekly canoeing or dragon boating, my teammates are all incredibly amused by means of my fivefingers play shoes, and stare at them against some time. I divine the toe-shaped flaunt shoes makes it look like a cobweb of some sort, but it’s not like I can swim in these fivefingers shoes. I’m conclusion the alfresco sports shoes dialect right complacent, and although I cannot run with it as I would with regular running distraction shoes, at least I can walk along the pontoon or beach space in hearten, contrastive with when I used to walk barefooted. My feet tempered to to cripple or communicate with scorched from the fervid territory, but not with these fivefingers recreation shoes I don’t. Win a look at the pictures to foresee how the fivefingers out of doors sports lark shoes look like from the top and bottom.
