Is the Facebook Phone about to launch?

Are we about to see the debut of the Facebook phone? The social network is holding a 'mobile event' tomorrow, in a similar format to the event last month which launched the new Facebook Groups.

Now, don't get too excited. The company flat-out denies the rumours that it's working on a mobile phone. The last time there was anything resembling a 'Facebook phone' - the INQ1, which was out on Three and had lots of Facebook features baked-in, it was announced by the manufacturer and not by Facebook themselves. We think it's more likely they're updating their mobile application in some way, although there's nothing obviously missing from it.

The truth is, it's hard to predict what Facebook do - almost no-one predicted the Groups announcement last month. Whatever it is - you'll be the first to know!
