Facebook phone release date rumors fueled by April 4 special event

Facebook has invited the press on April 4 at its headquarters in Palo Alto, California, to see the company’s “new home on Android.”

According sources cited by 9to5Google, the social network is working on its own smartphone designed in partnership with HTC.

The site writes that Facebook will present its own tweaked version of the Android, which is similar to the way Amazon trimmed the operating system for its Kindle Fire HD tablets.

Despite repeated denials by Mark Zuckerberg that such a device isn’t in the works, the rumors are persistent and have continued to appear in recent months.
