Computerworld – While analysts ridicule the idea of a Facebook smartphone, one Paris-based marketing expert predicts that a “FacePhone” will appear in 18 months — and that the social networking giant will buy Nokia for $10 billion to make it happen.
The existing hardware-operating system partnership between Nokia and Microsoft will also play into Facebook’s plans for a smartphone, which means the device would use the Windows Phone operating system, said Paul Amsellem, managing director of Mobile Network Group, a mobile marketing company.
“Facebook will launch the FacePhone. And whether it has a blue color and a logo with a big F on it, it will definitely be disruptive,” Amsellem said in a telephone interview. “Even at this moment, Facebook doesn’t know what it will look like, but they need to do it.”
