    Facebook could buy Nokia to build 'FacePhone,' expert says New phone would run Windows Phone operating system

    Facebook could buy Nokia to build 'FacePhone,' expert says
    New phone would run Windows Phone operating system

    omputerworld - While analysts ridicule the idea of a Facebook smartphone, one Paris-based marketing expert predicts that a "FacePhone" will appear in 18 months -- and that the social networking giant will buy Nokia for $10 billion to make it happen.

    The existing hardware-operating system partnership between Nokia and Microsoft will also play into Facebook's plans for a smartphone, which means the device would use the Windows Phone operating system, said Paul Amsellem, managing director of Mobile Network Group, a mobile marketing company.

    "Facebook will launch the FacePhone. And whether it has a blue color and a logo with a big F on it, it will definitely be disruptive," Amsellem said in a telephone interview. "Even at this moment, Facebook doesn't know what it will look like, but they need to do it."
