HTC and Facebook working on Facebook phone Q3 2012?

Completely integrated platform between the phone and Facebook?

While Facebook maintains it will not be making a smartphone that hasn't stopped it from teaming up with HTC, a partnership that looks set to continue

A HTC Facebook phone could well be arriving in Q3 of 2012, or at least that's according to industry sources who believe that HTC and Facebook will be teaming up to release another collaboration between the two companies.

Industry sources have spoken to DigiTimes and reportedly claimed that the continuation of their business relationship is in response to the likes of Samsung teaming up with Google for the Galaxy Nexus.

In order to find its own niche HTC is apparently hoping that by teaming up with Facebook they'll be able to bring back some of the profits that they lost last year.

With the HTC One X and One S already receiving positive reviews the company will no doubt be looking to build on this success in 2012 and they believe that building a Facebook phone with a completely integrated platform will be the answer to that question.
