Is Facebook Looking To Get Into The World Of Smartphones?

The good folks over at Facebook are always looking for new ways to keep us all connected. Today some interesting news has hit the e-streets that could find Facebook taking their talents in tech into the Smartphone industry. It looks that Facebook’s Building 8 division is diving into the Smartphone world and a patent published late last week made mention of a “modular electromagnetic device.”

The goal of said device is to be a counter to “expensive and wasteful” disposable technologies that we see today. No word on how far along the project is or if the patent is a move for future endeavors. Whatever the news may be, it looks like Facebook is aiming to go further than your average social network. Speak your thoughts on the rumors below and keep it locked for more on this and from Facebook coming soon.
