The constant discussion about an impending Facebook phone produced by the company give legs to the rumor. Even though the concept has been tried unsuccessfully before, the Facebook phone rumor keeps raising its ugly head for consumers to like or dislike.
If Facebook is determined to make a phone in partnership with an industry player, wouldn't it be fun if it went with RIM? The Facebook BlackBerry could leverage RIM's excellence in messaging and break Facebook into the mobile space with panache.
It probably wouldn't have a chance in the highly competitive mobile space, but it would sure be fun. Industry watchers could spend time predicting which would fail first -- the Facebook phone, Facebook stock price, or RIM. Good times.
