Is Facebook about to launch an email platform?

People who sell a mobile phone and put the cash towards one of the latest smartphones may soon find they are in a position to use their handset to access a brand new email system.

Joe Minihane, writing for review site T3, speculates a Facebook announcement on Monday (November 15th) is to confirm the creation of Project Titan – a rival to Google's "peerless" Gmail.

Commenting on why this could be the case, the author notes: "The invite clearly shows Facebook's iPhone inbox icon. Tenuous, sure, but it's enough to get tech fanatics salivating at the prospect of yet another front opening in Google and Facebook's acrimonious battle for web supremacy."

Mr Minihane goes on to remind readers that Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the social networking portal, has previously said there will be another major development by the firm in 2010.

Research by Three recently found Facebook is the most popular feature of mobiles among those with handsets that have a broadband connection.
