Facebook is rumoured to be releasing its own phone

People who are thinking of recycling a mobile phone may wish to wait until Wednesday (November 3rd) for a special announcement by Facebook.

Rich Trenholm, writing for CNET UK, speculates the social networking site may be about to confirm plans for the release of its own mobile phone.

"The invitation shows a string and cup phone, suggesting a phone-related announcement. Could it be the Facebook phone that set the web's rumour mill spinning like a catherine wheel in September?" he asks.

If it is, those who enjoy updating their status, checking out photographs and sending messages to friends may decide to wait to recycle their used phone until shortly before the new device is launched.

While Facebook has not confessed to working on a handset, Mr Trenholm points out nor did Apple or Google prior to major releases.

Recent research by the mobile network Three found Facebook is the most popular function among those who use broadband via their device.
