I can see the benefit of a tighter integration of FB apps with Android. Making a FB smartphone may not bring out a lot of value. One key aspects of smartphone is freedom of installing apps that will expand the "potential" of the device. Will FB bring out a game changer device (tablet or smartphone) if they indeed go for it? What kind of device will be really a game changer like when iPhone was launched?
