The Facebook phone rumors roil onward. The latest has Facebook and HTC releasing a device called the Myst.
No, Facebook phone rumors are nothing new. In fact, they've been percolating for about three years now, in one form or another. But there's a reason why they're so indelible: Facebook, and its shareholders, know that the future of the largest social network in the world lies in its mobile strategy. It makes sense that eventually, Facebook, no matter what CEO Mark Zuckerberg says, will try its hand at the hardware game.
The latest Facebook phone rumor comes courtesy of the tech site Unwired View, which reports that HTC and Facebook are collaborating on a device known as the Myst (not to be confused with the popular computer game of the same name). The details are as follows: The Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system, a 4.3-inch high-res display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, a 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel camera.
