id rather own an iPhone than buy a facebook phone. My life doesnt revolve around people liking my statuese and pictures on facebook. And besides as the old joke goes "the more friends you have on facebook, the less you have in real life" :)

Why would you want a Facebook phone? They'll be tracking you more than Apple.

Why would you? It sounds so limiting, Facebook isn't that big of a deal.

I was just generally asking PhoneArenaUser to EXPLAIN why he doesn't want one, if you had read my comment below then you wouldn't need to bark back at me. Man, 20 dislikes, people aren't the fastest at thinking on PA sometimes.

Are you f*cking serious? You DO realize you can get facebook on any smartphone right now, correct? A "facebook phone" would add absolutely nothing to the experience.

Facebook is only one function on the phone... We do other things on the phone irrelevant to Facebook. Why need a Facebook phone?

That's what i'm thinking. I use Facebook, like everyday...i check and comment on my friend's photos and statuses. But while i can access Facebook from my phone through the internet, i don't really think i need a Facebook phone.
I just want to know what features it comes with that makes it stand out from the rest.

You can use facebook in every mobile. No use i believe.

If Facebook actually made really good FB apps for iOS, Android, Windows, BB10, but they cant. So how could we trust a Facebook "powered" phone.

useless and wouldn't speak "class". even a Chinese phone would be better than carrying a "F" phone

id rather have like a itouch like facebook device. seems more pratical to me. just have EVERYTHING intergrated with facebook...and some new cool things too.

Facebook - no,
phone - yes.
"new home for Android"
if this really is a phone based on Android, its more like "new home for Facebook"

the day a facebook phone comes out is the day I cancel my account for good! first they gotta stop all the crap with the spam and advertisement....

Ads is how it makes money. Are you saying you want to use it for free?

And it should be able to integrate normal text messages into it. Damn, I need a simple unified messenger for all my 'messengers'
