Facebook Phone is Real, Android-based, and Called the Cloud Touch?

The INQ Cloud Touch is the new Facebook phone?  According to a filing with Bluetooth SIG that’s exactly what the current name is being referenced as.  INQ Mobile has been the manufacturer of the phone since this thing was first rumored, so this doesn’t come as a complete surprise, well except for the fact that Zuckerberg denied that they were working on one.  Or are they working on two?  Maybe a QWERTY version and an all-touch screen version?  And yep, it’ll be Android-based.

Here is the filing:

…is an Android smartphone built to make messaging faster and smarter. It’s designed around the way people naturally communicate and has Facebook built into its core. The homescreen features multiple entry points to different Facebook functions, while a dynamic widget displays a feed of status updates, albums, videos and photos.

Sounds like a lot of Facebook, but INQ is also known as being a social guru, so maybe they are just overdoing their description a little?

Anyone interested?  I’m…not.

    Yes.. this will be great it can take facebook stalking to an entirely new low, or maybe high… depending on who you ask.

    Anything with “cloud” in the name is a joke. Cloud computing is a stupid marketing term. No such thing exists.

    Wait… sooo… I dont get the point of a Facebook phone. Its a social network! The app is enough! POINTLESS!

    If this is true, it is just another way that Facebook will take more your personal info and do what ever they want with it. Facebook’s TOS says that they are alowed to do anything with the information that you put on their site.

    ….because stalking your Facebook friends wasn’t already easy, we’re just making it easier.

    Why would they want a phone when most new phone come with facebook apps or compatibility ?

    This is false facebook is not creating a phone, they have came out and said this there is no reason to create a phone not for the money at least. If anything they are creating a better app or mobile interface

  • GraveHypothesis

    umm.. does anyone remember the KIN? Nuff said, you shouldnt build a phone around just a few features. In this day and age you need to have phones that will do everything better than everything else.. And I dont use the facebook app. I go thru the browser.

  • Jawshua

    No I don’t ever get on Facebook except to check with my film contacts to get new work when it comes around my city.

    Besides that never saw that it was much fun to use, so a phone based around it isn’t high on my list. I’ll still wait to get the Bionic.

    Why would I ever want this? I guess it would be aimed for the 12 year olds like the Kin…and look how well that did. At some point it is FB overdose.

    Don’t judge too harshly Android fans, remember when Google was coming out with thier phone and people were doing and saying the samething “It won’t work” Apple will dominate them” or no one cared unit Android started to crawl then walk, now jogging at a face pace. I am not saying that Facebook is going to take over Android or Apple. But, lets wait and see what they have. If it’s junk then it’s junk. If it’s something that can compliment Android and the hardware/specs are good or better than what you have now. Then why not take a look. Just having an open mind.

    • The350zWolf

      In that respect, I think that Google has learned their lesson with the Nexus one and now they are sticking to what they do best, software and partnering with other people that know what they are doing. As it is facebook is pretty alienating, to me anyways. I don’t have facebook and I don’t think I ever will, let alone a facebook phone.

      • Anonymous

        True and good point 350zWolf, I see what your saying but I do see that at
        the time Google was still dominating in the search and doing a lot of R&D
        software and the mobile space was another outlet/platform to bring more of
        thier search and apps to the fore front of the industry as well as thier
        OS. The Nexus one was thier test bed in the mobile space and as you clearly
        state Google learned thier lesson but gained a hughe market share. But
        Thier technolgy has gained from thier lesson learned. Facebook has thier
        own development R&D and is following the Google model ie IPO for example. I
        think it’s interesting and will see if Facebook flops at thier attempt to
        jump into the mobile arena.

        • The350zWolf

          You are right. I guess that I’m a little biased against Facebook, nevertheless they have done the right things so far. Also they will become a stronger company if they make mistakes and learn from them.

      That’s the correct approach How about a full facebook experience rather than just the messaging.

      I hope it comes out with a screen that makes AMOLED+ look terrible, a processor that makes the Atrix look bad, and have the longest battery life ever. Just to piss you guys off :)

    Another brick in the wall. Or another phone clogging the pipe. However u say it, new phone overload.
