There is already a Facebook Phone. Is a Facebook Tablet coming as well? Google is doing it, why not Facebook?
Facebook will go IPO in May. The amount of money they will be pulling in will be astronomical. What is Zuckerberg doing with the billions? Killing Google? There is a report on BusinessWeek that Facebook is looking to push further into web search. Facebook could also easily push into consumer gadgets. There is already the "Facebook Phone." The HTC Status is not a major blockbuster and Facebook needs to take gadgets more seriously if they want to compete with Apple, Google, Amazon and Microsoft.
Google is now reportedly going to offer Google branded tablets. Facebook might be right behind them with a Facebook tablet. I would not be surprised.
