Facebook phone gets a dislike before launch: Study

Despite the hype and hoopla, most people are not enthusiastic about Facebook phone, according to a recent study.

In the survey conducted by Greenlight, a UK-based digital marketing agency, half of the people quizzed said they would not switch to Facebook phone if the social network makes one.

It is to be remembered that just two days back, Facebook’s chief executive officer, Mark Zuckerberg dismissed reports that Facebook is making any phone on its own. However, the Facebook has reportedly joined hands with HTC to come out with a smartphone with very deep integration of the social network.

The study, which covered 500 people, however quoted respondents saying that they had to be persuaded to switch to the Facebook phone and that improved functionality would be the top reason for switching, followed by price and then design, reported the Daily Telegraph.

In past, Facebook and HTC have managed to release two smartphones that flaunted dedicated Facebook key and deeper integration of the service in the Android OS. However, these phones did not gain the popularity as expected by the makers.

According to reports, a new Facebook centric smartphone made by HTC is expected to launch sometime next year and obviously we can expect some of the fancy Facebook features incorporated on it.
