This Technology news posted by 07 September, 2011on
Vodafone is partnering social networking site Facebook to introduce a Facebook phone. This would give users one click access to the site. The phone integrates Facebook as default home screen once switched on.
The partnership, according to sources close to the development, is expected to bring affordable pre-paid data plans to allow users to surf, upload pictures, update status messages and chat with their Facebook friends.
Vodafone's Facebook branded phone comes with a 2.4 inch screen, a QWERTY keypad. The phone lacks 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity and instead, works on 2.5 G and Edge networks.
According to Facebook sources, this deal is the latest mobile partnership in India for Facebook, which has repeatedly denied reports that is keen on launching a dedicated Facebook phone, saying it favored a strategy of deep integration with many handsets.
