Would You Buy a Facebook Phone?

Jan 27 2011 - 1:00am
Details are slim at this point, but we did get a look at what could be coming with the rumored HTC "Facebook phone" yesterday [1]. While staying socially-connected — presumably through Facebook Places, the company's new messaging system, auto photo uploads, and coupon alerts — seems to be the main goal of this device, I'm not sure a Facebook-branded feature phone would be a success. Remember the Kin [2]? Of course, Microsoft isn't the social giant [3] that Facebook is, but I'm not sure how this device would compete in the already-saturated mobile space. What about you — would you buy a Facebook phone?
