Facebook Smartphone launch could be based on the following three strategies:
Facebook Smartphone first strategy could feature an Android phone with Facebook overlay like the current HTC sense overlay on Android.
Facebook Smartphone second strategy could be a bid to take Amazon kindle fire approach and essentially fork Android for Facebook.
There are also some less likely rumors trying to suggest that Facebook might go all the way in the development of their own Facebook Operating software following Google, Apple, Microsoft, Blackberry and Mozilla.
The problem with Facebook developing their own operating software is that they would need new talent for their device which might delay the launch of their new device into the market. There is also the issue of the ecosystem of which blackberry and windows have been known to suffer from up to today.
