The Facebook mobile could arrive at the MWC in Barcelona

An interview with the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, talking about the idea of ​​launching a Facebook mobile has triggered all kinds of rumors, which suggest that this terminal could finally see the light this year.

Thus, the latest comments ensure that HTC will manufacture two terminals with the brand of the social network and that they could be seen at the Mobile World Congress held in February in Barcelona.

Thus, these phones would have a special version of Android and will show, above all, Facebook messages as well as news on the user’s social network on the main screen, according to a London newspaper, citing unidentified sources. Another utility would be the possibility of sending email messages or calling friends from the information that appears on the Facebook page.

Boomberg has also echoed these rumors, although this time it is ruling that INQ Mobile is working on Facebook mobiles, which would be available in Europe during the first half of 2011 and in the United States during the second semester.

Our colleagues from PC World have contacted sources from HTC in Spain who have referred us to the presentation they will make at the MWC where they will make “important announcements” without wanting to go into more details.
