because numbnuts... fairfax wants it all for themselves.... and if they cant have it at $9 all for themselves then they want another compnay to pay top dollar for it
Pointing to Google's (GOOG) Android and Apple's (AAPL) entire ecosystem, Peck says what Facebook likes about the idea of making a smartphone is the ability to control the entire user experience. If users are routed to their mobile operating system through Facebook, the entire experience of interacting with the smartphone could be "monetized" with ads and payments.
From such a perspective, using a Facebook smartphone sounds like Dante's 8th circle of hell but it's hard to blame Zuckerberg for trying.
For investors waiting for Facebook to report tonight the issue isn't ambition, but focus. While Google and Apple generate cash, so much cash they literally have trouble spending it all, Facebook doesn't have that problem. If there aren't higher-margin ways to monetize mobile Facebook's upside is limited.
Peck says the upside is worth the distraction. If Facebook has the phone it always knows where you are. It can push you towards places to eat, drink or just about anything else. All approved by your network (and kicking money back to Facebook).
