Facebook Confirms Major Android Announcement Next Thursday
Will Facebook introduce the long-awaited and widely-rumored "Facebook phone" next Thursday? That's the big scuttlebutt tonight as Facebook has begun sending out media invites to a major press event scheduled for Thursday, April 4th in Menlo Park, California.
Facebook isn't dishing on specifics just yet, but a major Android announcement is indeed on the way.
“Come see our new home on Android,” the invite reads, suggesting either a new Facebook app for Android... or something else.
"Some sources have come forward to say a Facebook Phone is on the horizon," says Brittany Hillen of Slashgear. "The invite is a simple tease – vague title, location, date and time – giving us just enough information to spend the next week guessing. Some sources have surfaced, however, saying that we should expect an operating system."
Plenty of knowledgeable sources believe that Facebook will introduce a modified Android operating system with an HTC handset.
There's a good chance that these and other rumors will be rampant until next week at this time. The only thing we know for sure is that Facebook has something big brewing.
