Facebook Phone

A long-rumored smartphone project from Facebook that officially debuted in April 2013 not as a standalone mobile device but instead as a collection of Facebook apps for use on Android-powered smartphones. While still referred to by some pundits as Facebook Phone, Facebook's official moniker for the service is Facebook Home.

Facebook Phone brings the social network's most popular features to the front and center of an Android user's smartphone, providing a stream of Facebook posts, photos and links on the phone's home screen or lock screen.

While Facebook is rumored to be working with Apple to create a version of Facebook Home for the iPhone, most believe that Facebook doesn't have any plans to create its own Facebook Phone mobile device.
