Facebook to release mobile phone

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – New smartphone app's are all the craze in the world of technology, and now Facebook is looking to go into the mobile phone business.

Facebook has developed a phone that, when turned on, greets the user with photos and messages from Facebook friends.

 "The home screen in really the soul of your phone," said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. "You look at it 100 times a day. It sets the tone for your whole experience and we think it should be deeply personal."

The only catch? Facebook will no longer be available to Apple users.
