Facebook Attempting Third Smartphone Release

Fresh off its debut on Wall Street, it looks as though Facebook is having another go at developing its own smartphone. It would be Facebook’s third attempt at such a mobile device, as the software and social networking giant already has in their employment a number of key software and hardware engineers from Apple who worked on the iPhone and iPad. What makes this attempt different than the previous two, is that Facebook has a better grasp on the task at hand, and now has a much larger, and carefully groomed team of knowledgeable engineers working on the project — all of whom have had prior success developing mobile platforms. As a publicly traded company, Mark Zuckerberg is perhaps feeling the need to find new avenues for growth and penetration. Could the third time be the charm for a Facebook phone?
