Facebook-branded HTC phones? They don’t exist, says Facebook official

Facebook wants us to forget about the rumored HTC-made, Facebook-branded phones that are supposed to be announced at Mobile World Congress next month.

Why is that? Well, because, according to Facebook’s head of business development (Dan Rose), the company has no intention whatsoever to announce phones branded with its logo.

Reuters quoted Dan Rose, who said:

“This is really just another example of a manufacturer who has taken our public APIs (application programming interfaces) and integrated them into their device in an interesting way. The rumors around there being something more to this HTC device are overblown.”

So, while we could see new HTC Android smartphones with deep Facebook integration, they just won’t bear the Facebook brand. Sure enough, HTC’s latest handsets already provide an integrated Facebook experience, but maybe HTC wants to push things even further, with more Facebook-related features. Let’s see if we’ll find out more about this at MWC.

    Facebook is doing the waiting game. They don’t want to endorse this phone from HTC but will wait for its debut and see if it clicks with the consumers.
